Wolf misses the jugular after showing flashes of killer instinct early on, but engaging stars and deft direction make this a unique horror-romance worth watching. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

After being bitten by a wolf in rural Vermont, aging book editor Will Randall (Jack Nicholson) finds himself full of youthful vigor. Randall then discovers that he's been fired and replaced by Stewart Swinton (James Spader), a vicious young executive. As Randall struggles to regain his position, he becomes enthralled with Laura Alden (Michelle Pfeiffer), his former boss's daughter. And, as increasingly animal-like urges begin to overwhelm him, Randall worries that he may be a werewolf.

    Much of the silliness you'd expect is here, especially in that final act fight sequence. However the attempt to take an airport paperback premise seriously feels like a reasonable one and I think that Nichols mostly pulls it off because the non-werewolf scenes are just as if not more compelling than the more traditional horror material.

    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Jack Nicholson is totally commmited into his role and is probably the best part of this horror flick. Well it wasn't scary at all so I wouldn't actually call it horror. I enjoyed the premise of Wolf more than the actual film. It's got decent direction and a few laughs but it was aggresively unamibitious in it's execution. It could have been better but I enjoyed Nicholson and the attempt at something better than a production line werewolf movie. It's very cheesy and it isn't good but then again it isn't bad either.

    I remember seeing this movie at the drive with my parents when I was about 8 years old, but thats all I remember of it. Well no movie featuring Jack Nicholson as a werewolf can be all that bad right? Answers yes and no. Yes, the movie isn't bad exactly, but no that doesn't mean it ever really climbs out of the pit of mediocrity that it's in. So middle of the road you'll feel like you've seen it 100 times before, then a week later you'll forget all about it again. Hit or miss I guess. While it's on it's enjoyable, and I'm not going to go so far as to say I didn't like this movie. It just doesn't offer anything new to the werewolf genre and as a result is pretty generic and forgettable. Worth a watch for genre enthusiasts I guess. Really just a minor foot note though.

    Mike Nichols directs this update of the wolfman myth with Jack Nicholson as the victim/monster. Here its played interestingly as sort of a desirable thing, a fountain of youth, an answer to societal submissiveness. Michelle Pfieffer adds spice as the woman drawn into it.
