[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TeenWolf1980sFilmPoster_3906.JPG]]

Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox) has a problem. Well, several problems. He's an average high school student with no 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.

He's about to discover that "special" runs in his family. It's called lycanthropy.

Released in 1985, ''TeenWolf'' shares many elements with ''{{I Was A Teenage Werewolf}}'' (1957, starring Michael Landon), and helped to revive the popularity of the werewolf in pop culture. It was followed by an [[TheAnimatedSeries animated series]], and a sequel, ''Teen Wolf Too'', starring Jason Bateman as Scott's cousin (who is also a werewolf). An InNameOnly {{revival}} with the {{Wangst}} dialed UpToEleven is currently airing on {{MTV}}.

!! This movie contains examples of:
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Pamela doesn't give Scott a moment's notice until she finds out about his animal side.
* AnimatedAdaptation
* ArchEnemy: Mick [=McAllister=], the star player of the rival basketball team.
* BettyAndVeronica: In this case, brunette Boof is Betty, and unattainable blonde Pamela is Veronica.
* BigGame: ''Winnnnnnnn in the end! I'm gonna win in the ennnnnnnd!''
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Mick (in the animated series).
* BodyHorror: Scott's first on-screen transformation.
* BreakUpToMakeUp: Scott and Pamela. [[spoiler: In the end, he picks Boof.]]
* BringMyBrownPants: Harold Howard vs. Vice Principal Thorne. Point goes to Harold.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Harold's "great power" speech to his son was a deliberate reference to ''SpiderMan''.
* DawsonCasting: Michael J. Fox plays 17-year-old Scott at age 23. Then again, [[ItsWhatIDo that's just what he did in the 80s]].
* DeanBitterman: Vice Principal Thorne
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Harold, his future wife, and Thorne.
* FreakyIsCool: Werewolf = lots of friends.
* FunTShirt: Easily half of Stiles' wardrobe.
* 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.
* HandsOnApproach: Scott teaches Pamela how to bowl.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: At first, then...
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Scott has a freakout on this theme when he finds out he's a werewolf. He already has enough problems without it. Then he finds out about his high school's apparent furry fandom.
* InTheBlood: Scott learns he has to keep a leash on the Wolf after a confrontation at the prom nearly ends in violence. His dad had earlier related a similar tale of werewolf rage from his own youth.
* {{Jerkass}} Vice Principal Thorne. In school, he used to harass Harold and his future wife until Harold transforms into a werewolf and threatens him to leave them alone. Then he takes it out on Scott until Harold reminds him again (see Papa Wolf below).
* JerkJock: Mick.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Stiles and Chubby. And Boof.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: The classic wolf man variant here, along with the family curse.
** Except that Scott and his dad retain their own minds in their transformed states (unless you push them too far, though that may just be a case of DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength). With VoluntaryTransformation thrown in when the moon isn't full.
* OutsideRide: Stiles' favorite pastime is surfing on the roof of a car. It becomes Scott's favorite pastime as well, until his father chides him.
* PapaWolf: Harold Howard vs. Vice Principal Thorne.
-->'''Harold Howard:''' I want you to leave my son alone. He's a good kid... he's just having a tough time right now. Okay? '''''*Snarl...*''''' \\
'''Vice Principal Thorne:''' [[BringMyBrownPants [wets himself] ]]
* ParalysisByAnalysis: Scott opens the movie at the free throw line. He's clearly thinking too hard and bricks it.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[ThisIsSparta "Give me... a keg... of beer."]]
* TransformationTrauma: Averted here; Scott's first transformation doesn't appear to be painful, but more "Holy shit I'm turning into a monster!" Most of the trauma seems to be social, until he discovers that FreakyIsCool.
** [[SarcasmMode Because social and psychological trauma totally doesn't count.]]
* WolfMan: A light comedy version.
* YouSexyBeast
