The frustrated housewife Leslie visits an animal shop to purchase a flea-collar. Unknowing that the owner is a werewolf, she accepts his invitation to lunch and later in his apartment. Through a bite in her toe he starts her slow transformation in a werewolf. Home again, she desperately tries to hide the often disgusting process from her family, but her daughter Jennifer and her - from horror magazines well educated - friend recognize what's going on, and help to kill the non-human.

Frustrated MILF Leslie Shaber (Susan Blakely) allows herself to be seduced by dark, dashing pet-shop owner Harry Thropen (John Saxon), who takes her back to his store and bites her on the toe, after which she gradually begins to sprout bodily hair and fangs. Leslie's teenage daughter Jennifer (Tina Caspary) guesses that her mother is turning into a werewolf and, with the help of her horror-fan best friend Stacey (Diana Barrows) and fortune teller Madame Gypsy (Ruth Buzzi), tries to reverse the process.
I'm loathe to call My Mum's a Werewolf a horror-comedy since it isn't scary and there is nothing funny about it. Most likely inspired by the surprise success of Michael J. Fox film Teen Wolf (1985), MMAW is poorly scripted, badly acted, low-budget dross of the sort that would have clogged up the bottom shelves of Blockbusters when it originally came out; now it's a part of one of those ultra-cheap Mill Creek 50-movie DVD box sets, and is probably one of the weaker films to be found there (and that's saying something given how bad some of the others are).
