Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rather than a wolf in sheep's clothing, Teen Wolf is basically a standard 80s teen flick in werewolf's clothing."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"corny but endearing"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Perhaps the nicest werewolf movie ever made -- and how could it not be, when it stars sweetie pie Michael J. Fox?"
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"It's often ridiculous, and filled with '80s cheese, but Teen Wolf does harbor some poignant coming-of-age metaphors and decent helping of intentional, and unintentional, comedy."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Classic 80s teen flick. Ow-wooo!"
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"Lots of fun. Michael J.Fox is hilarious!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Despite the inexcusable lack of a DeLorean, Teen Wolf is a modest, digestible comedy, guided by a perfectly itchy Fox performance as the titular beast."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Forgettable formulaic comedy."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"The anecdotal happenings in the film are insignificant, because in theme Teen Wolf offers an unparalleled analysis of puberty, adolescence, and the all-to-familiar search for popularity in teenage film."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
