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…
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.
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…
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.
No one freaked out when they found out this random kid was a werewolf. They actually found it cool. Wtf.
Cool movie though.
Fun stuff. Anyone else notice the guy flashing at the end in the crowd? How did that make it in there! Good fun film though and a real nostalgic blast.

I really didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It doesn't take it seriously which is perfect for what it is, and it's enjoyable of a film throughout despite being somewhat predictable it hits the right spots.
O GAROTO DO FUTURO
I feel like playing basketball after watching this movie, and i don't even like sports.
Michael J. Fox running down a wet hallway is one of my favorite bits of physical comedy.
Poor old MJF has to carry this film all by himself since no one else is putting in the effort. He succeeds, but even he can't change the fact that:
1. An interesting concept is effectively ignored in the last third when it turns into a generic sports movie.
2. The supporting cast are useless. The guy who plays "Chubby" looks at least 30 years old. (Just did a Google. He was 27, and looks every single day of it.)
3. Bland is just written all over this. The script, the direction, the story -there's nothing interesting about it.
A pretty entertaining film that I couldn't decide was very cliche or the complete opposite. There were many times where I was baffled at what came out of a characters mouth or what was happening on screen. Overall, a pretty fun and mind numbing 80s gem.
