The frustrated housewife Leslie visits an animal shop to purchase a flea-collar. Unknowing that the owner is a werewolf, she accepts his invitation to lunch and later in his apartment. Through a bite in her toe he starts her slow transformation in a werewolf. Home again, she desperately tries to hide the often disgusting process from her family, but her daughter Jennifer and her - from horror magazines well educated - friend recognize what's going on, and help to kill the non-human.

My Mom's A Werewolf is self-explanatory, a lonely housewife on her way to the pet shop one day meets a strange man who gives her the bite that turns her wolfen. But, the town hardly notices, including her oblivious husband. So, her teenaged daughter solicits the help of a fortune teller and her friend, well-versed in monster trivia, to help her mom out.
The movie is out and out corny. I mean, the idea that someone's mom turns into a werewolf is certainly comical fun, except nothing really seems to happen other than that. There's no real hijinks or amusing events that set off a whole series of funny consequences. It's more like, okay, so you're mom is a werewolf.
But, I criticize with caution because I'm watching this in my twenties, reminiscing the fun horror/comedy days of the late 80s. But I'm sure it was aimed for kids, or at least approved for the whole family kind of movie. So, pre-teens are probably more likely to get a kick out of it than I would (although they might miss some of the subtle humor such as "Toe Job" and "Cavity Empor"). But what the heck.
