Trivia

The original plot line had three strangers brought together by a car accident in the Hollywood Hills and the subsequent attack of a werewolf. The three characters were named Ellie Hudson (Christina Ricci), Vince Winston (Skeet Ulrich) and Jimmy Myers (Jesse Eisenberg). When the script was re-written, the plot changed and focused on two estranged siblings who had to fight a curse after a werewolf attack. Skeet Ulrich's character was totally re-written and renamed Jake. Since Ellie and Jimmy became brother and sister, Ellie's surname was deleted and became Myers. See more »

Jimmy Myers: Ah, its, uh, Jimmy.
Bo: You're the dodgeball crotch target! You should really wear a cup.
Brooke: Stop it, Bo. Okay?
Bo: I'm just lookin' out for him. He can't help it. Every school's got one; the derogatory hit-geek on his way to Fagtown.
Jimmy Myers: Look, uh, I-I'm not gay.
Bo: Oh, bummer. You mean you're just an ass-wimp-wad for no reason?
Jimmy Myers: [nods reluctantly] ... Y-yeah.

I liked this movie!
26 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sad that so many people have not liked this movie! It was a total parody of every werewolf movie you have ever seen. I thought it was hilarious and I think that's what Kevin Williamson wanted (but who am I to speculate?). I thought of the movie in the same way I thought of Scream... a lot of people saw Scream as just a cheesy horror movie, but those that are huge horror fans and have a sense of humor, got the joke.

Lighten up.

My advice to those who haven't seen the movie: Don't take it so seriously! It's supposed to be fun. The obvious jokes aren't the only ones you are supposed to laugh at ;)
