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.

    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.
