Teen Wolf (1985)
The Girl: Pamela Wells (Lorie Griffin)
The Geek: Scott Howard (Michael J Fox)
The Technique: As the tagline runs, Scott always wanted to be special, mostly so A) he can play better basketball and B) win the heart of dream girl Pamela.
So when he learns he's a werewolf, he naturally uses it to his advantage, winning her over with his hairy charms. Hope she has flea treatment on hand.
Oh, and he's another one who realises that his true love isn't the sex kitten fantasy, but bessie mate Boof (Susan Ursitti), who has always pine for him.
Which has us cautioning all geeks to see if their best friend loves them.
