Light hearted wolf fare this is, for the whole family too, back in '85, when Fox, such an overrated actor, was making a name for himself. Unpopular Fox, yeah Mr Average, is beginning to notice changes, and it's genetics. He's sprouting wolf hair, his eyes lighting up, faint emerald, and he's starting to howl. All these features make him, king of Popularity overnight, where being a wolf has it's advantages, especially in needs to your wants, like very unattainable hottie, Pamela, who's stud boyfriend, who's starring daggers, isn't happy to say the least. Plusses in this, are of course, Levine, as Fox's best mate, who brings a lot of color and vivacity to this feel good movie, it's throbbing music score, unnervingly fitting to Fox's music, where in it's starting, playing over the opening credits, for a more intense, higher classification wolf pic, but like I said, this is a great and perfect pic for everyone, minus kiddies I guess. This is great camp 80's, and the film offers some really funny moments, one killer line, concerning father and son, Fox on the stairwell, in a two way conversation, and a surprise revelation. It has again, "the girl who's best for you, is right beside you, and you didn't notice" scenario, so you obviously know how the finale ensues. Also we have a bit bad history, and a personal grudge, where a few revengeful moments, go greatly appreciated. Fun entertainment, and Stiles (Levine) who has god much more screen presence, acting wise too, than Fox. He's the life of the party in this one, and I myself, are truly grateful.
