Much of Wolf can be devoured with pleasure. To be more interested in philanthropy than lycanthropy may be a fault to the good.

The film isn't a waste of time, and works rather well for about two- thirds of its length as a comedy of business life. For a horror film or a serious exploration of the divided nature of modern man, you need to look elsewhere.

A fine little fable of business world mores that has the gross misfortune to turn into a horror film at a time when nobody quite knew what horror was.

A guaranteed good time for anyone looking for a different kind of horror film...
October 26, 2009
Mike Nichols' underrated 1994 hybrid not only of wolf and man, but also of satire and horror...an eccentric film that may well be regarded, decades hence, as a movie classic. [Blu-ray]

October 16, 2009
With the always edgy, slightly demonic, and predictably unpredictable Jack Nicholson as the wolf man, it actually works . . . almost.

Glossy werewolf horror/comedy that fails to make its mark on the genre.

Worth it to see Nicholson the wolf in fang-to-fang battle.

Director Mike Nichols emphasizes the film's Kafkaesque metamorphosis, a metaphor for the nightmarish experience of becoming different from most people and less valued; I won't be surprised if some viewers see it as allegory about AIDS.

Up until the rote ending, an elegant and witty take on the werewolf story.
| Original Score: 4/5
March 5, 2006
On the surface a literate werewolf thriller, the subtext of Mike Nichols' Wolf is a sharp critique about what it takes to succeed in the cutthroat corporate world.

Cerebral werewolf yarn that just doesn't work.

July 1, 2003
Never succeeds in recreating the classics.

April 16, 2003
'Jack Nicholson as a lycanthrope' is an interesting pitch, and it makes for a decent enough film.
| Original Score: 3/5
October 31, 2002
Nicholson has rarely been better than here, walking the line between the refinement of society and the pleasures of things more elemental.
October 30, 2002
...had the script been any good, Nicholson would have been the perfect choice to play a "civilized" man wrestling with the beast within.

Will speak to both your inner animal and your civilized soul.
August 13, 2002
A different approach to the werewolf saga, aided by Nicholson's bizarre performance
| Original Score: 3/5
April 12, 2002
If he'd followed through, Mike Nichols might have made a brilliant picture -- seems he just couldn't bear to look a gift wolf in the mouth.
