Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sophisticated to a point, this well-executed wolf-man tale works due to its clever setting and enormous star power. We all know Jack Nicholson can go nuts, but the script makes his character aware of his changes, sometimes for the better, early on. The setting, a publishing house in the middle of a takeover, gives the characters dramatic life before the horror elements kicks in. A senior editor about to get the boot, Nicholson's character becomes a new man after being bitten by a wolf. He takes on challenges at work, lives a more robust life, and attracts a new love. But will his newfound energy consume him? Director Mike Nichols keeps the action alive in the first half, but the film peters out at the end with cheap theatrics and the overuse of slow motion. Michelle Pfeiffer has little to do as simply the love interest with a grittier than average personality. Better is James Spader as a smarmy colleague. Nicholson is in fine form, relying on his keen gift to spark interest (a twitch of the head, a look in the eyes), instead of heavy doses of movie makeup. Giuseppe Rotunno's sweeping camerawork sets the mood quite well. Easy to recommend, with the added feature it's hardly gratuitous. --Doug Thomas

Format: VHS Tape
This is a thinking person's werewolf movie. Well directed by Mike Nichols, it features a stellar cast who give excellent performances. Jack Nicholson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Plummer, James Spader, Kate Nelligan, and David Hyde Pierce all contribute to the successful execution of this sophisticated and subtle horror film. As an added bonus, those of you who are devotees of the TV series, "Friends", should look for David Schwimmer's cameo appearance in the film.

Jack Nicholson plays a middle aged, married, senior book editor for a publishing company. Driving home at night from a business trip in New England, he hits an animal on the road. When he gets out of his car to check on the condition of the animal, he discovers it to be a wolf. What happens next will change the course of his life forever.

When Jack gets back to his office, he is feeling the after effects of his interaction with the wolf. He is also concerned about his job, as his publishing house has been taken over by Christopher Plummer. Jack initially plays his character as a somewhat laid back, nice guy, a good man who doesn't see the knife being plunged into his back by his young, ambition driven underling, played with obsequious perfection by James Spader, until it is too late. Publishing is, indeed, a dog eat dog world.

Betrayed by his underling who has been given his job, Jack finds himself undergoing a subtle, physical metamorphosis. He no longer needs reading glasses, his hearing is extremely acute, and he has a keen, very keen, sense of smell. It is these enhanced senses that lead him to discover that his wife, well played by Kate Nelligan, has shockingly betrayed his love and devotion, causing him to leave her. It is a betrayal that is to have dire consequences for her.

1. What did I like about it ?
NOTHING !
2. What I didn't like about it ?
The fact that it had only 22 reviews . What is wrong with us ? Very good director , Mike Nichols ( Regarding Henry , Working Girl , Silkwood , The Birdcage , The Graduate ... ). We already know , he is good , very unpredicteble and different ( when he wants to ). Jack Nicholson , as a lead ? It should be not just a horrow film , should be dipper and better . Michelle Pfeiffer ? Oh , Boy ! They really spend MONEY to make it . It have to be good . Was it ? YES ! How fast do we forget good films ? Only 22 reviews ? Even my book get more than that ! Not fear ( for this film ).
Why would you go to this film and expect a regular horrow flick ? I allways check the director and the actors first . And I do like ( sometimes ) good scary " staff ". If you want to get really scary ? Go to upper Manhattan at night with Armany siut on . Or go to Sierra Vista at night ( in Las Vegas ), pretending to be a tourist , returning to hotel from a shopping in Boulevard Mall . It will be scary , trust me .
3. What do I love about this film ?
Exellent selection of every actor for every role . The changes of caracters , unpredictebility of most of them .
The slight details which tell us so much .
The exellent acting , that made me forget - they are just actors acting .
The story itself . The GIFT in some people is a gift ... in some ... Like a nuclear power ... only one way to find out . And I don't want to .
A dream of something different , just for a moment ... can I keep it now ? ... forever , please ?
Much more than kind of , suppose to ,horrow movie .
4. What it is about ?
Read other few reviews , some good reviewers did very good job , and I don't want to repead them .
