Описание: Каждый подросток хочет выделяться из массы сверстников и нравиться девушкам. Фокс ("Назад в будущее") тоже хочет выделиться, и желание его осуществилось. Правда, весьма неожиданным для него образом. Он узнает, что является оборотнем и что это у него семейное. Но зато в школе он сразу становится самым популярным человеком, так сказать, первым парнем на деревне. Комедийный "ужастик". (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: Scott Howard is a normal dorky teenager who plays basketball pretty badly, works at his Dad's hardware store and can't get more than two words out of the school beauty. However when he starts noticing changes he initially panics until he finds out that he is part of a long line of werewolves. When he changes in the middle of the court during a game his secret is out but, far from being ostracised, he is suddenly the height of popularity, getting all the things he could never get before.
It's been a good handful of years since I watched this film – and it hasn't aged well, looking increasingly silly for every year that goes by. The film is basically a `fitting in' teen movie with all the usual teen movie clichйs. However there is so much basketball action in the film that it could almost be considered a sports movie. As a teen movie it is passable, with the werewolf twist making it stand out in terms of content if not quality. The twist is used to create a few scenes and allow Scott to be popular and, would you believe, learn lessons along the way.
So as a teen movie it is so-so, I personally hate the genre and didn't find anything here that made me change my mind. As a sports movie the film is laughably lame! The basketball action is just plain silly and they haven't even tried to put any effort into making it exciting in any way. I know that the `little guy wins the game' clichй CAN work, but here the fact that the whole game action is lame means that the lame clichй can't possibly work.
Fox is good and his easy charisma helps the film a lot. His character is pretty poor but he does bring a lot to it, even if his makeup makes him look more like an Ewok than a werewolf! The support cast are all pretty nondescript and don't make an impression. Fox stands out but mainly because no one else is doing anything of value.
Overall this is a very average film that doesn't really impress at any point. The teen clichйs are all present and the sports action totally fails to engage. More interesting than some teen movies only due to the twist of the werewolf but other than that, nothing.
