American teenage witch Sabrina and her food-obsessed magical talking cat and mouse travel to Rome, the last whereabout of her 16th-century aunt Sophia, who was banished after breaking the rule not to divulge her powers to a non-witch; her mission is to find out how Sophia can be freed by opening her golden locket. Sabrina stays with her Italian relatives; notably niece Gwen, an certain and therefore dangerously clumsy budding witch, actually joins her quest there. Being seen using magic, Sabrina gets followed by two tabloid reporters, Paul and Travis, who are promised at least $100,000 if they can expose a real witch, but Paul, an American-adopted Italian, who set out a to win her confidence to trick her easier till they can take a picture of her witchcraft, actually falls in love with her. Gwen has her own Roman admirer, timid Alberto, but impatience for him to make a move causes her to accidentally transform him into a street pigeon. The girls find only one way to Sophia's secret: a... Written by
While sword fighting in the past, Sabrina comments, "Hey, watch it. You try doing this backwards and in high heels." This is a reference to a line misattributed to Ginger Rogers in that she did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels. The line actually originated in a 1982 "Frank and Ernest" newspaper comic by Bob Thaves as "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, ...backwards and in high heels."

At 48 minutes, Sabrina, Gwen, Paul, and Travis are all sharing a meal at another outdoor cafe. While they're at the table, it appears to be dry weather. When Gwen walks off and yells to Sabrina, there's a person in the background with an opened umbrella, indicating rain, but it still seems relatively dry. After Gwen kisses the black pigeon and Sabrina is standing next to her, the pavement is very clearly wet and there are a lot of people in the background with opened umbrellas. See more »
This movie was great. Sabrina travels to Rome and finds a locket belonging to an old ancestor of hers. She has to find a missing piece though. I especially like her line, "This thing hasn't been uncovered for over 500 years and now it's all up to me. And people say I procrastinate." I also liked the part with Salem and Stonehenge (the guinea pig) wrecking havoc at that Italian restaurant. This runs on the WB pretty often. Highly recommended.
