Teen Wolf Too (1987)

The original Teen Wolf (1985) was a big hit, although that was probably more to do with the fact that star Michael J Fox had just appeared in Back to the Future (1985).

The first movie was essentially a one-joke teen comedy and this sequel is just a lazy retread, with Jason Bateman playing struggling college student Todd Howard – the cousin to the Fox character.

Todd soon discovers that his lycanthropic genes work wonders for his sporting prowess (here it’s boxing rather than basketball) and his standing in high-school society.

Most actors have some skeletons in their closets but Jason Bateman, the star of the wonderful sitcom Arrested Development, must really cringe whenever this surfaces on TV.
