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.
When I was a prepubescent werewolf, Teen Wolf helped me get through my own physical changes and I, too, became super popular and awesome at basketball and van surfing, despite also being very short and not very good at anything physical when I wasn't wolfed-out, because then I was just a sweaty kid who was riddled with anxiety and friend-zoning most of my male friends in hopes to one day catch the attention of James Spader.
Now that I have been a werewolf and I am in my early 30s, this movie doesn't speak to me the same way, but it doesn't lessen the profound effect it had on me many moons ago, in giving me that reassuring glance into…
Teen Wolf is so likable I want to pinch its hairy little cheeks.
I watched the film last weekend and it was the first time seeing it in over 20+ years. It was a total hot water bottle movie. Back in the late 80’s I watched it too much, one of those films I used to rent every other week (The Last Starfighter or The Boy Who Could Fly in the weeks between) until it screened on tv when I could finally record it onto videotape. Seeing it again was like revisiting an old, beautiful, hairy friend, and that I watched it in the same place as I used to as a kid (my parents house) made it that little…
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.
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.
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…
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…
Good funny enjoyable 80s cheesy movie.
Started VHS night before as we finished up consolidating note cards into more easy to maneuver-in-a-timeline cards. Finished next morning while putting around house. With Jesse in Broken River.
Imagine how hairy his balls are.
I still love this film now as much as I did 10+ years ago.
An 80s comedy that could've only been made in the 80s, thanks to its ridiculous concept and memorable characters (Stiles is one of the greatest characters ever written). Albeit nostalgia or not, TEEN WOLF still manages to hold it charm after all these years.
I still need to get one of those WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT DICKNOSE? t shirts though...
What on earth was that....
An 80's cheesefest and I always love every minute of it.
Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox) is a semi-dorky teen with all the problems that go along with being a teen and dorky, i.e. low self-esteem, girl problems, etc. Scott gets even more bummed out one night after turning into a werewolf before his very eyes, thinking for sure that this was just going to make his life even tougher. Fortunately, Scott is not the type of werewolf that tears people's throats out and eats their internal organs, but rather the type that excels in sports and looks good in a pair of shades. Thus, the curse turns out to be a blessing in disguise, but Scott must decide if his new found popularity is as important as being true to…
Film #1 of the "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge!
Task #3 : Film featuring A curse
So here we go for Julys scavenger hunt, I started with an easy watch something light to ease me into the challenge. Teen Wolf.
Firstly I'd like to say this film is terrible for a variety of different reasons. The cuts away and back to show various basketball actions and the transformation into the wolf are laughable, the soundtrack/score is awful and the concept is seriously weird. Like why is he so good at basketball, bowling and dancing just because he is a warewolf?
Having said all of that I am not a complete movie snob and sometimes films are there just…
Shy teenager Michael J. Fox becomes the toast of his high school when he discovers a hidden talent—the ability to turn into a cuddly werewolf at will. Veteran TV director Rod Daniel (WKRP in Cincinnati) does all he can to reduce the screenplay's dimly promising equation of lycanthropy and adolescent sexual anxiety into a glob of sitcom sweetness, giving this 1985 feature a cheerful, bland, cartoonish style that quickly eliminates any possibility of authentic human reactions. Fox somehow survives on the sheer force of a pleasant screen presence, but those who remember The Shaggy Dog ought to stay away. With James Hampton, Scott Paulin, and Jay Tarses. 91 min.
