Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox) has a problem. Well, several problems. He's an average high school student with few friends, he's a mediocre player on a losing basketball team, and the girl of his dreams won't even look twice at him. His dad works at a hardware store, and he's generally the ButtMonkey of the entire high school. Life sucks. Scott just wants to be recognized, to be special, to be the guy that everyone wants to hang with.

Released in 1985, ''Film/TeenWolf'' shares many elements with ''Film/IWasATeenageWerewolf'' (1957, starring Michael Landon), and helped to revive the popularity of the werewolf in pop culture. It was followed by an [[WesternAnimation/TeenWolf animated series]], and a sequel, ''Teen Wolf Too'', starring Creator/JasonBateman as Scott's cousin (who is also a werewolf). ''Series/TeenWolf'', an InNameOnly {{revival}} that went decidedly DarkerAndEdgier is currently airing on {{MTV}}.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: See Getting Crap Past the Radar below.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: For once by complete accident. During the scene at the end on the bleachers pay attention to a guy sitting with a red jacket on his lap. As people get up to walk away, you'll notice the guy had his pants unzipped for some reason.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Scott has a freakout on this theme when he finds out he's a werewolf. He's got enough problems without it. Then he finds out about his high school's apparent furry fandom.

Werewolves automatically change during a full moon, but also can undergo VoluntaryTransformation.
