Audience Reviews for Full Moon High


A really bad film redeemed somewhat by Adam Arkin's natural charm. This was his first lead and much better things were ahead for him the same was not true for Elizabeth Hartman. She has a small role here well beneath her talents, at one time a rising Oscar nominated actress this was her last onscreen role before her suicide a few years later after years of battling emotional problems. Alan Arkin's presence can only be explained as a good luck gesture to his son.

This comedy is pretty stupid for the most part, but it's also got a lot of really hilarious jokes which spoof werewolf movies, and it has an funny cast. I enjoyed it for the most part.

You know, this had real potential, and it does score highly in the first 30 minutes of the movie, but it just falls flat thereafter. This has an absolutely cooky cast, some very funny moments and dialogue and just an overall fun feel, but once the main character becomes a werewolf, the movie just isn't as much as fun. Everything leading up to that is great though. I enjoyed it mostly, but I found myself wondering when it was going to be over...and that's not a good thing when you're trying to entertain an audience. I don't know if anyone else has felt that way about it, but I did. If it had the snaz and snap that the beginning of the movie had, it could have been a stellar cheesy 80's guilty pleasure. Hell, it pretty much IS a guilty pleasure already, but not of the classic guilty pleasure ilk I'm used to.
