He always wanted to be special... but he never expected this!
What's a high school kid got to do to be popular? Just let down his hair and howl! Starring Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future) Teen Wolf is an outrageous comedy about a shy teenager with more than a changing voice to contend with... he's a budding young werewolf! And when his new-found powers help him score at basketball - and with the popular girls - he has some pretty hairy decisions to make.
I love this film.
It helped me get through puberty.
I looked like a Yeti when I was twelve.
This film taught me that that's fine.
Listen son. You're going to be able to do a lot of things the other guys aren't.
Really the only thing this film has going for it is it's gimmick and Michael J. Fox's charm. The story is something that's been used a hundred times before and since. Teenager missuses "something" to gain popularity at high school but realizes the error of his ways by the end of the film. The end. The thing is though, that "something" was usually not this cool... or cheesy for that matter.
Yes the film is filled to the brim with 80s cheese, forgettable dialogue and even worst; forgettable characters. It does however have it's moments which include Michael J. Fox playing…
Moral of the story: athletic ability=human value.
Man, I’m starting to love werewolf movies. The concept of lycanthropy is both stupid and awesome at the same time. It has so much potential for comedy, horror, and even romance. And maybe porn, who knows.
TEEN WOLF is just a fun movie. It’s entertaining, well-acted, funny, and surprisingly heartfelt. Sure, the whole premise is clinically retarded and boy does that high school have a desensitized student body, but hey, fun is fun. But! there is still one thing that I can’t get out of my mind.
What happens to the dick. Plus, this film raises yet another question about werewolves. In most stories and movies, a person changes from a bipedal human…
Best bad movie I've seen in a long time. Sweet and endearing tale of a werewolf playing basketball as well as being inspired by Saturday Night Fever. It doesn't get much better than this.
It seems like I always end up watching this at least once every six months.
There are so many things that are just plain awful about this movie, but it hits me like a right hook in the heart no matter how many times I watch it. I guess I really am just that obsessed with the gorgeous Boof. It also doesn't hurt that Micheal J. Fox is and always will be one of my absolute favorite actors.
It's unfathomably stupid, but I keep going back to Teen Wolf, time and again.
Before Rod Daniel made such excellent contributions to the arts with films like Beethoven's 2nd and Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House, he unleashed upon the world TEEN WOLF, an absolute landmark in cinema and arguably the peak of the art form. Teen Wolf is a masterwork on the struggles of post-pubescence, the need to fit in, accepting and loving who you are, and the importance of high school championship basketball games.
So much of this movie made so little sense.
Why was he a wolf? How could he control the wolfing?
Why does this school have two basketball teams that are so unevenly matched?
There was a LOT of the basketball game at the end. I would say too much.
This movie was ridiculous.
MJFox was charming, as was his dancing.
Michael J.Fox ist sympathisch. Der Film plätschert ohne große Höhepunkte vor sich hin und hat aus heutiger Sicht schon einen leicht lächerlichen bzw. peinlichen Anstrich.
Sheesh! As if the teenage years weren't difficult enough already...
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A favorite ever since it was glued into my Beta Max as a kid!
Everyone's favorite Canadian doing his best all American boy act, but this time, as a WEREWOLF! LOVE IT!
Gateway horror film right here if there ever was one.
The effects were awesome back then.
A good, fun 80's movie. The script is good considering how silly the idea is. It's well paced and the acting is good. Michael J. Fox is actually pretty good in this movie. The werewolf affects aren't very good. I don't have a lot to say about this. It's a fun cult film from the 80's. Worth a watch.
Imagine the most formulaic teen movie you can, plus 80s synth score. Add WEREWOLVES.
Notice how nothing changes.
God, old movies suck.
I know that's a sweeping generalization and there are some good ones but, for me, there are only a few gems while the most suck. This is just another example.
The story includes a slightly interesting, different twist on werewolves; rather than being used to inspire fear and dread, the werewolf is used as a means of making someone popular. I tend to enjoy new versions of old, overused ideas. This almost reminded me of an old school version of the Twilight saga, but worse. At least some of those things were slightly entertaining at times.
Aside from that kind of unique aspect, the rest of the story sucks. Dork vs. Jock. Jock can't get the…
