Based on Jill Murphys book, The Worst Witch is set in a boarding school for witches--complete with orange and black school uniforms, broom-flying exercises and potion assignments. The incompetent student of the title, Mildred, is played by a fetching young Fairuza Balk. Diana Rigg is the nasty head teacher, Tim Curry the (oddly) idolised Grand Wizard, and Charlotte Rae does double duty as the schools kindly dean and her evil witch twin, whos bent on taking over the school.Directed by Robert Young, this charming film features less than state-of-the-art effects and several songs that stop the action--most bizarrely an outdoor assembly performance by Curry that turns into a weird music video. Still, pre-teen girls will identify with the beleaguered heroine who overcomes her wickedly snooty rival, a teacher who doesnt believe in her and a band of dastardly witches, and, of course, saves the day. Ages six and up. --Kimberly Heinrichs, .
