In this likeable, if lightweight, comedy, a teenager who longs to be a little less ordinary discovers a family curse that kicks in when the Moon is full. Beneath the facial fur, this is just another film about growing pains, although it does feature cinema's only werewolf slam-dunk sports sequence. As the unfortunate teenager, the ever-engaging Michael J Fox is doing what he does best - turning a loser into a winner. Jason Bateman took over in the needless sequel Teen Wolf Too, after Back to the Future shot Fox to superstardom.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Michael J Fox. Everyone suffers growing pains but Scott is in a class of his own. When this previously average high-school student discovers that he is turning into a werewolf, he decides to turn his strange genetic inheritance to his advantage.
