After publicly exhibiting his werewolf transformation at high school, an otherwise boring teen basketball player not only becomes an overnight success, but also helps his flailing team turn around their less-than-pathetic game results. Though released before Back to the Future, Teen Wolf was re-released shortly afterward on account of its success at granting Michael J. Fox instant Teen Wolf-like popularity.

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
