"Starring Michael J. Wolf" - a review by pearly

Michael J. Fox stars in this teen flick about a vaguely unpopular high school kid named Scott, whose life is up-ended when he discovers that he's a werewolf. Not only does everyone at school think that going to class with a werewolf is pretty damned cool, but Scott becomes the most popular wolf around.

Other than the whole teen werewolf storyline, Teen Wolf is pretty much a straight down the line guy-wants-popular-girl, popular-girl-doesn't-know-guy-exists, guy-gets-unhappy-about-situation, unpopular-but-stable-girl-secretly-wants-guy, guy-realises-he-would-be-happy-with-unpopular-girl, everyone-happy (variations on the popular-girl-ends-up-unhappy-but-guy-doesn't-care themes also present) story. In this case, the popular girl is blonde, and the unpopular girl is brunette. Go figure.

Teen Wolf is kinda fun, with memorable bits such as the girl and boy in the closet for 60 seconds party trick, that give you a nostalgic feeling (in my case, nostalgia for other movies that had these kinds of shenanigans, cos it never happened at any parties I ever went to). That's about it though - it comes across as incredibly B-grade, and is not something I'd ever want to watch again.

pearly gives this movie 4 out of 10.

If I won 8 Best Original Screenplay Oscars but Jack Palance accidentally read out Marisa Tomei's name when I won 3 of those Best Original Screenplay Oscars, how many Best Original Screenplay Oscars did I actually take home?
