Movie Details:   Released on the heels of the hugely successful Back to the Future after sitting on the shelf, Teen Wolf was released in an attempt to cash in on the huge popularity of star Michael J. Fox. Teen Wolf chronicles the plight of Fox as a small-town nerd who can't seem to score a basket on a court or a point with his dream girl; things change, however, once he discovers his family secret of hereditary lycanthrope. He begins to look hairier and hairier, his team begins to win basketball games, and his dream girl begins to show interest in his unusual talent. His story does not play out without complications, however; his best friend, an opportunistic weasel, begins to exploit him beyond his limits of toleration, his dream girl is captive to the requisite bully boyfriend who, of course, captains the arch-rival basketball team, and to top it all off, his other best friend is in love with him. Unbelievably, this film was a box-office success and eventually inspired an even worse sequel Teen Wolf Too several years later, a film which Fox wisely declined.
