"Teen Wolf" (1985) is a silly teen comedy starring Michael J. Fox as a high school nerd who discovers a quick path to popularity and basketball stardom... by letting his inner werewolf out.
My kids found this on Netflix this afternoon and asked to watch it because 'the Back to the Future Guy is in it.' I hadn't seen it since its original HBO run in the mid 80s, and I didn't remember it being very good even back then. Well, let's just say it hasn't improved with age. Michael J. Fox should thank his lucky stars that 'Back to the Future' was released before this flick in the summer of '85, otherwise his movie career might never have gotten off the ground!!
I've never seen the who-asked-for-it sequel "Teen Wolf Too" (1987) with Jason Bateman taking Fox's place, and never will if I can help it!

"Teen Wolf" Was Robbed

"This DVD is a disgrace to the epic masterpiece that is "Teen Wolf." I grew up watching this movie every other day on a scratchy old VHS we taped off of network TV. My brothers and I memorized nearly every line. It's humorous, eccentric, sentimental; a freakin' great movie."Teen Wolf Too," on the other hand, should never have existed. It is shameful that instead of loading this disc with extras from the original movie (it would have been great to see some of those scenes shot for TV, or even some commentary and outtakes), they put the ... retread sequel on here, whose first and greatest sin is that it is without Michael J. Fox.I love the original "Teen Wolf" and the DVD is worth buying just to get a good version of it, but it deserved better treatment. Much, much better. Whoever is responsible for this should be ashamed of themselves."
Lets give Jason Bateman a break!

"Although I agree with all the reviews covering this DVD that Teen Wolf (the original) was better, I believe people should ease up on the harsh reviews of Teen Wolf Too.. although it's quite the similiar plot line, and its NOT MJF, Jason Bateman shines in his own right in this movie... doesn't anybody watch the hilarious Arrested Developement? It's the same wolf as from all those years ago! Plus, I like both actors who play Styles equally, and the dance scene with "Do You Love Me?" gives the movie that extra special 80's flare! I'm actually impressed that both movies are on one DVD set, I wanted both!!
Overall- A needed add to you're 80's movies collection, for the fans!"
Teen Wolf is a classic! Avoid TWT!

"Trust me, you'll want to skip Teen Wolf Too. Michael isn't in it, and it's one of the worst films ever made. Anyway, in "Teen Wolf", Michael J. Fox plays Scott Howard, a loser high schooler who plays on a basketball team that never wins, has a crush on the cutest girl in school, Pamela Wells (she ignores him like the plague), who by the way is dating the most popular hunk in school Mick McAllister, and always has trouble getting beer. So, one night, when he's at a party with his best friends Boof and Styles, something odd happens to Scott. As if he didn't have enough problems...guess what? He's turning into a werewolf! Now Scott has to make sure he can keep his secret! He makes sure to avoid classmates and friends, as well as vice principal Rusty Thorne (who has a grudge against Scott's father, Harold Howard)! However, during a game, Scott turns into the werewolf, and his secret is out. Now, he can play basketball like never before, and gain popularity! While he helps his team win the games, he finally has luck with Pamela, who has taken a new interest in him. It's now up to Scott to choose friends before fame. An 80's classic."
