I have a thing for teen comedies, especially from the 80s. Surprisingly I’ve never gotten around to watching Teen Wolf for whatever reason till now. It’s not amazing, but it is a teen comedy. Compared to a lot of those type of films being churned out now (especially direct to DVD) it’s really good. I liked it even with its faults. The simplicity of everything helps. There is no real attempt to try and justify the whole werewolf thing. It’s a fantastical element in the film that you just have to accept.
A lot of the teen romance and other themes are pretty lame and underused, but that was kind of a blessing. It was nice to not see them really toyed with because those themes are kind of lame in teen comedies.
