Corrected entry: Near the start of the film when Scott and his Dad are in the shop, a little boy blows a dog whistle which hurts Scott's ears, but it doesn't seem to bother his Dad who we later find out is also a werewolf.

Correction: The father doesn't convey a reaction to the whistle because he is used to being a wolf. Scott is dealing with just realizing he is a teenage werewolf and can't control things such as this yet.

Corrected entry: There are multiple times during the basketball games, when Scott is doing some fancy passing, when it would be really easy for the opposing team to steal the ball, but they don't because, well... the script doesn't call for it.


Correction: Not necessarily a movie mistake. Who's to say the other team is any good? They could be a bad team and therefore don't realize they're able to steal the ball. You can't comment on what the script calls for unless you wrote it.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Scott is talking to his basketball coach in his office. The next scene he is shown leaving school in completely different clothes.

Correction: He is leaving the locker room as you said. The whole point of a locker room is to change clothes so it can be assumed that he changed clothes in the locker room. Just b/c the didn't actually show him changing clothes doesn't mean it didn't happen. Remember this is a PG movie.

Corrected entry: Though the vampire legend gets changed when convenient for the plot, werewolf legends have always centered around changing with the moon. How does Michael J. Fox change during the day?

Grumpy Scot

Correction: In Teen Wolf it is a family trait that appears during or after puberty. It is triggered by the full moon but also by rises in emotion (anger, lust, etc.) It isn't your typical werewolf syndrome.


Corrected entry: When Styles is "Urban Surfing" on Scott's van on the way to the party, they pass the same Jack In The Box Restaurant twice, and the same Denny's twice.

Correction: They are driving around a small town with not too many streets. They are cruising around trying to be seen by everyone so who says they can't go down the same street twice? No mistake here.

Corrected entry: During the championship game, one of the final shots shows Scott's dad coming out of the crowd to congratulate him. There is a fan behind him who stands up to cheer and deliberately exposes her underwear to the camera. (01:25:15)

Correction: This isn't a mistake and there's no deliberate exposure of the underwear. It's not uncommon for some people in tight jeans to undo the buttons when sitting. As she stood up, she was just rebuttoning her jeans.


Corrected entry: In the 'exposing fan' shot, there is a female crewmember visible to the lower left, holding a walkie-talkie and some coats, observing the scene and actually glancing up at the fan as he is covering up. (01:25:15)

Correction: There is a redheaded girl wearing a gray shirt and holding a purse and a blue coat. She does look up at the tattooed man exposing himself, but he has already pulled his shirt down over his opened zipper by then. She does not have a walkie talkie, and there is nothing to indicate she is a crew member. Near the end of the shot her coat is bunched up in her arms, and one of the creases looks similar to a skinny walkie talkie antenna, but it is just her coat.

Coach Finstock: What is it, gambling? Drugs? You know I'd really like to help you but I'm kind of tapped out this month. The IRS is coming down on me like it's some personal vendetta against Bobby Finstock.

More quotes from Teen Wolf

Question: Why did Lewis start ignoring Scott after it was revealed that Scott was a werewolf?

Answer: Because Lewis knew that Scott wasn't being true to himself by letting the Wolf take over his personality. Lewis, like Boof, liked Scott for who he was as a person, not as a werewolf.
