But he was pretty entertaining in the film.

So no great filmmaking here, but if you are bored and want to cheesy for for 90 min go for it.

Anyway, enough of my boring yapping - watch it, it's only 90 minutes long and if you can survive the embarrassment of the Teenwoolf dance, you can survive anything (except Fat Guy Goes Nutzoid)!

There may be the odd cheesy line, but overall the script is solid, and while somewhat predictable the ending is nice.

It's quite confusing.

I first saw Teen Wolf when it came out in 1985 / 86 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

There isn't a much more 80s sequentially flick than teen wolfIt's cheesy, fun, lighthearted but entertaining.

But despite all this, Teen Wolf is very entertaining, and thouroughly enjoyable.

Somewhat enjoyable, especially for fans of Michael J.

I have to say that this is a very good, very entertaining movie.

but this one is still entertaining,and sometimes funny.

though, the film is still entertaining and fun on a certain level.

Fox is the only thing that make this compelling.

Teen Wolf is a harmless piece of cinema that is light-hearted, charming and enjoyable.

Fox unexpectedly changes from an average teenager into a suave werewolf; having already made the transformation from TV star to movie star a month earlier with Back To The Future, the young actor puts in an effortlessly charismatic turn that goes a long way to making this otherwise corny and predictable teen fantasy a reasonable amount of fun.

I think people can relate to this film in many ways, certain characters despite them being cliché, the problems of popularity, loneliness, bullying, sexuality etc...

K if you are really, really bored.

But in 'Teen Wolf' a god damn WEREWOLF appears on the court, and every one's like 'Yawn - Your point or mine?

This is lightly entertaining, predictable and often corny.

Very cute and engaging 80's teen comedy romp .

i think boxing is more entertaining to watch in movies rather than watching basketball in movies.

Perhaps still enjoyable for Michael J.

It's enjoyable and charming (at least that's what I find Teen Wolf.

Entertaining teen comedy ...

But there's enough pure entertainment value in the film, that I enjoyed it even without one bit of nostalgia from my childhood.

It is a classic 80s movie, (although admittedly not of the same standard as the Back to the Future trilogy, or The Goonies) that is ultimately a very enjoyable sunday afternoon film.

But on some level, it's also entertaining.

What a waste of time.

As for the films flaws, it is very predictable at times, and some moments in the film are a bit hard to take seriously.

"Teen Wolf" is an occasionally entertaining stupid kid's movie that's a bit too raunchy for kids.

Entertaining (should've been rated PG-13 though) .

Unfortunately, the rest of it is pretty ordinary and predictable...

With that said, this is somewhat enjoyable, and Michael J.

The story is predictable and corny.

Teen Wolf is a likable film more than a really good one, it sets a standard tale of teen angst & anxieties against the backdrop of a Werewolf film & is quite fun if a little dated & predictable.

Young Scott Howard (Fox) is bored with being so average.

I watched it when it first came out and quite enjoyed it as I remember.

It needs more laughs to it but there is fun to be had and the plot at least flows rather than stutters and, in Fox and Ursitti, the cast make it a bit more engaging than the material should be.

Fox film which i loved watching and found very enjoyable and entertaining to watch.

Worth watching!

This movie is incredibly entertaining despite being cheap-looking and cheesy at times.

It badly needs laughs but the set-pieces and the moments of plot do help keep it engaging.

Teen Wolf could definitely have benefited from a few more solid laughs, but with an engaging central performance from Fox, likable supporting characters, lots of 80s atmosphere, and a general good-natured approach, the film has a charm about it that is almost impossible not to like.

I highly recommend it

This is a fun and enjoyable teenage romantic comedy that is suitable for the whole family.

It was an unexpected moment in a movie with very few unexpected moments.

Fantastic, I highly recommend it.

The two main threads about basketball and romance were both pretty run-of-the-mill but it still provided enjoyable lunch time viewing.

This film had potential up to a certain point then became a downright boring movie with to many positive messages and not enough wolf for my tastes.

A thoroughly enjoyable under-rated little film, that neatly captures some of the frustrations of adolescence whilst never losing it's sense of teenage fun......

I give it 10 stars because I think it is funny and entertaining, although it is terrible

And if you're REALLY REALLY lucky you should still be able to find the script (downloadable from most cheesy script sites) for the, incredibly-tedious-don't-even-bother, proposed THIRD movie called TEEN WOLF AGAIN in which a, get this, suggested THIRD GENERATION family member starts wolfing out on the PRO ice hockey circuit!!!

There is far too much basketball playing, which makes it a touch boring and the car roof surfing is a bit silly.

So if you put the predictable teen antics to one side what are the wolf antics like?

Rob Daniel made entertaining, memorable cinema in 'Teen Wolf', which I refer as A 1985 Classic!

I'm still mixed about it, loving some of the characters (smart ass styles), a few of the sequences (werewolf transformation at unexpected moments), and a bit of the music.

By comparison it's a decidedly small movie, but enjoyable for what it is (an 80's teen flick).

Michael J Fox is a fairly normal teenage dude that is bored with being average.

Enjoyable, Albeit Cheesy Flick .

Please don't waste your time watching this movie; I cringe today just wondering how this movie got made!

Because the film was so playful about it all, I found it to be quite enjoyable.

Of course it's cheesy but it's somewhat enjoyable for the very least.

It is a basic story that mixes teen coming-of-age films with the sports cliché and throws in the werewolf legend to make it a bit different.

Fox) is bored with his mundane life.

Silly and predictable, but very fun and entertaining to watch- Teen Wolf is a pure 80's joy ride.

It's pacing is on spot, and it retains a surprisingly very entertaining nature, despite its awkward moments at times.

Director Rod Daniel, working from a sweet script by Jeph Loeb and Matthew Weisman, relates the entertaining lighthearted story at a brisk pace, maintains a good-natured tone throughout, and milks the amusing sense of pleasant humor for a bunch of solid innocuous laughs.

I first saw Teen Wolf when it came out in 1985 / 86 and thoroughly enjoyed it.
