CRINGEWORTHY MOMENTS IN HISTORY

It was1988. A year before maverick director Dorian Walker and hot producer Bob Manning would release the highly anticipated Teen Witch. A film that stars Robyn Elaine Lively as a teen nerd who suddenly discovers she’s a powerful witch. Originally Walker and Manning planned for just a simple jazzy film score to accompany this indie dramedy. Though after reviewing the first cut, the creative team realized a contemporary dance music number would be integral in helping complete a pivotal scene. In a pinch they turned to composer/lyricist extraordinaire Larry Weir. And with the help of a well-choreographed Amanda Ingber they created one of the most Cringeworthy Moments in cinematic history – “TOP THAT!”

  4. Anything with a rap battle in a 80's movie is bound to be worse than cancer.

  7. We may have been really cheesy in the 80's, but we didn't like that even back then.

  14. I think I was in an alternate reality during that time period. If it caused me to miss this obvious stinker, then like Chuck said, it's a good thing. Or something close to what he said...

  15. Oh, oh wow, kids. THIS is what the 80's were about, pure undiluted 80's in one movie.

    This and Once Bitten. And Ski School. And every single Bikini movie.

    Just...this one's for teenagers.

    Wow.
