Storyline

Sabrina travels to Australia's Great Barrier Reef with her best friend Gwen, a fellow witch from England, for a week-long vacation where they try to help protect a hidden mermaid colony whose habitat is threatened by ocean pollution, and by a local marine biologist, Dr. Julian Martin, determined to find the colony as his claim to fame. While Sabrina finds romance with Barnaby, a "merman" from the mermaid colony, Salem the cat finds a posible romance with another witch-turned-into-a-cat, named Hilary, but finds Sabrina's problems interfering with his plans.

Eminently forgettable
29 March 2002 | by (Newcastle, Australia) – See all my reviews

Lame and lazy, this made for TV feature length adventure for the teenage witch shows how much the TV series owes its spark to the talents of Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick - both are absent from this film. There is very little to like here, with flat performances, scant, predictable plot and an intensely annoying soundtrack. This film achieves some kind of distinction by making Australia's Great Barrier Reef appear to be a really, really dull place to visit. Melissa Joan Hart ambles through this film, giving the strong impression that she's actually on holidays and doesn't particularly want to be doing this movie. There's not much to inspire from anyone else in the cast, either.

For hard core fans of STTW only - and uncritical ones at that.
