Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This charmless, unfunny comedy boasts no redeeming features whatsoever. The filmmakers waste no time in telegraphing Teen Wolf Too's singular badness, opening with a terribly directed, written, and acted scene featuring a frothing Rottweiler and a terrified boxing coach in a college dean's office. In addition to inept conception and execution, the plot also seems to fly in the face of the essential conflict that generally fuels such stories. Isn't the problem with being a werewolf that the person has no control over when that embarrassing wolfiness strikes? In this story, Todd becomes a wolf at will and uses the strength and ferocity it instills in him to pound boxing competitors into submission.

Additionally, the earlier film -- featuring wolfication onset at an earlier age -- poses the uncontrolled rage and hairiness as a parallel to the difficult transition to adulthood that puberty brings. No such depth exists here. This is billed as a comedy, but there is little to howl at, except the fact that Todd looks far more like a monkey than a wolf.
