I'm ashamed to admit that it is perplexing how frequently I actually use the phrase "Wolfman's got nards!!!" to express surprise.

We watched this a couple of years ago for our Halloween movie and I thought it had held up surprisingly well.
The :) means it's all ok.

It got bad when three of the four "letters" to the "editor" in that magazine were from Pat!

Hey, did anybody pick this up?

I saw it at Sam's yesterday. I'm wondering if it is one of those films which was awesome when you were 11, but not so much when you're 31.

Also, since I can't quite recall the actual scene, can someone tell me if the Wolfman's junkshot would work well as an animated avatar?

Picked it up at Sams last week and yeah sad to say it wasn't nearly as good as when I was a kid. It was actually pretty damn boring and there were a lot of slow parts I don't remember at all. Can't comment on the shot in question because I actually wasnt even paying attention at that point. I would try and rent it and see if it still holds up for you.
