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 Butt Monkey 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, Teen Wolf 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 animated series, and a sequel, Teen Wolf Too, starring Jason Bateman as Scott's cousin (who is also a werewolf). Teen Wolf, an In Name Only Revival with the Wangst dialed Up to Eleven is currently airing on MTV.

This movie contains examples of:

 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: [wets himself]

 Harold: I was hoping I didn't have to. Sometimes it skips a generation, and I hope it would pass you by.

Scott: Well, dad, it didn't pass me by! It landed right in my face!
