Halloweentown High (2004)

Rated TV-G

Quote:Marnie organizes a student exchange program between her mortal school and the Halloweentown High. The first students to participate in this program are a witch, a warlock, a troll, and an ogre.

Not as good as the first two, but still better than the one that followed. The racism metaphor was ahead of its time in some ways but handled pretty clumsily in others, especially with the villain and how neatly everything is wrapped up, and a lot of the writing and tropes felt recycled from '80s John Hughes movies. But the cast was good, and while the jokes are cornier than ever even with the characters now teenagers, a lot of them still worked in spite of themselves.

My full review is here.
