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.
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.
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…
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.
This is one of the films that always holds a place in my heart… I love it a little more than it deserves, but who cares. Michael J. Fox is Scott Howard, an average kid who plays for his unsuccessful school basketball team and works part time for his Dad in the local Hardware store. He is fed up of being so average and craves for excitement and success, but he could have never prepared for what happens next. Scott soon realises he comes from a family of Werewolves as one night at a party he begins to go through changes that alter the course of his school life, basketball success and relationships with his family and friends, forever. Teen…
It’s like somebody forgot to pick Michael J. Fox up from work after filming Back to the Future and he just kept acting. Heck, Scott Howard’s house is the same house Lorraine Baines occupied in 1950s BTTF.
But to me, none of this is a bad thing. Fox’s initial reaction to the transformation in the bathroom mirror is priceless, and Stiles is a pretty great sidekick.
Interesting story and I like the direction they took the wolfness, oddly turns into a basketball movie for the last ten minutes though. Van surfing looks awesome. Enjoyable film.
OK... lets face it... Teen Wolf is far from award winning entertainment. But what it is... is good cheesy fun. Something to watch when you just want to sit back and enjoy. It is a real twist on the coming of age story. I think the whole werewolf idea is why I enjoy it so much... I definitely enjoy the monster movies... whether you can classify them as horror or not.
The craziest way to show adolescence.
Struggling in your high school basketball team? Become a werewolf
Do you feel unnoticed by your fellow peers? Become a werewolf
Do you have a crush on a popular girl? Become a werewolf
Extremely cheesy but a lot of fun.
Young people these days associate Teen Wolf with that Twilight-esque TV series on MTV. But people in my age-group only think of the 1985 cult classic. Sadly, it’s just as stupid as the MTV version - but - it features Michael J. Fox in his prime, so it balances itself out.
In the movie, he plays the star of an embarrassing high school basketball team. You know they’re bad when their top player doesn't even meet height requirement. Then one day, he turns into a werewolf and becomes the school hotshot. Apparently, being a werewolf means you can play basketball like Michael Jordan, have sex like Casanova, and dance on the roof top of a van. It’s too bad that…
Not my cup of tea of a movie.
Some good 80s Lycanthrope fun. Distinct score.
Teen Wolf's premise is incredibly dumb and silly, but it's a charming, entertaining, and funny movie nonetheless, and that is so exclusively because of Michael J. Fox, whose huge charisma was more than enough to make this harmless fantasy teen comedy from the '80s work.
