An American Werewolf in Paris

Critics Consensus

Markedly inferior to its cult classic predecessor in every way, An American Werewolf in Paris is felled by the silver bullets of clumsy storytelling and chintzy special effects.

A group of carousing American tourists is taking in the cultural landmarks of Paris when a chance encounter results in sightseer Andy McDermott (Tom Everett Scott) saving the life of Parisian Serafine Pigot (Julie Delpy). While on a date at a nightclub with Serafine, Andy is suddenly attacked and bitten by a werewolf. The next day he discovers that Serafine is also a lycanthrope, and that he is beginning his own grueling, hirsute transformation into one of the fanged beasts.

Audience Reviews for An American Werewolf in Paris

  • May 27, 2012
    An American Werewolf in Paris starts out like a straight up comedy but somewhere along the line it just grows into a horror film and struggles to maintain the balance. I enjoyed the film growing up, but that's due to the fact of my ignorance. An American Werewolf in London is a classic of the hybrid genre and leaves this film in the dust. The issue with the film is the messy story-line and one dimensional characters. The special effects feel dated compared to the first film. Tom Everett Scott has always been a talented actor but ended up with the wrong film roles. The film is only better for him being in the central role and he gives everything in an attempt to make it work. The balance of comedy and horror fails and the villains are cliche at best. This hasn't aged well and the care for an up-scaled 1080 or 2160 didn't help. This is one film that should be ignored for the superior original. 06/08/2020

    An American Werewolf in Paris is an insult to Jon Landis's landmark film. This film features nothing to redeem it's stupidity. The film is simply a washed out version of Landis' classic Werewolf film. The film has some very bad CGI effects, and it has a terrible cast to act out the dreadful scenes. This is one film that should be avoided, it's not even a decent film. This film is a poor excuse to cash in on An American Werewolf In London, now that was a werewolf picture. This film is pure and simply a travesty and is not worth your hard earned money. They could've done something great maybe if Jon Landis and Rob Baker were involved in the project, but instead they hired a hack of a director to market this brainless piece of crap to a "hip and cool" generation of teens. What a waste of money, and Celluloid, the only way this film could have been great was with a rewrite and Jon Landis helming the project. Nothing new to be found here, just a headache of a film.

    Not surprisingly as good as the London werewolf, but this is still a pretty funny movie. There were several laugh out loud moments with this. It tried to keep in the same vein as the original, but because there had to be a happy ending, is where this movie falls flat on its face. Tom Everett Scott is very likable in this movie as well as Julie Delpy. Amy Bowen was a hottie in this. Horrible CGI effects which also hurts this movie. Glad to hear a Suicide Machines song though.
