Pure campy fun that doesn't need action and suspense to keep the viewer entertained. It relies on charm of the time period where generic storytelling had its fashion to present a story more original than it really was. Main cast and supporting actors use their screen time to bring distinctiveness and humor out of token personalities and routine plots - which is enough to cement this as the 80s teen classic.
Its campy flavor allows it to get away with some of its inconsistencies and weakness. It feels lost in what it wants to be. Nevertheless, it is a coming-of-age story. I found it to be more peculiar than comedic. In the end, it only entertains (aside from the basketball games).
College teenage werewolf movie could have been fun had it been done right as a horror comedy, but instead this werewolf is more interested in playing basketball making this a supernatural sports movie with that predictable "last shot in last second wins the match" scene. Michael J. Fox does his usual charming routine, but this is a pretty good idea done wrong.
I love how Teen Wolf is a movie that isn't afraid of looking bad. The soundtrack, the acting, the plot. Everything looks so "cheesy 80s" but at the same time is one of those movies I can't hate. Maybe because a part of me really likes this 80s vibe. Solid 3.
Teen Wolf is one of the most stupid movies I have ever watched, it makes no sense, it's completely retarded from the beginning to the end. The main character's actions are ridiculous and laughable, he is always dancing for no absolute reason. In 90 minutes of movie, nothing happens besides the ascending popularity of a dancing werewolf. The plot is almost nonexistent and it's completely pointless
