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

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP DRAWER WEREWOLF FILM... Dec 12 2006
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolf May 12 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
4 1/2 is better. We liked this for the possibly of what could be. How some animals are violant and how sensative some others are. Depending on the person and how they treat people and each other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hair club for men July 1 2006
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Will Randall (Jack Nicholson) has made it to the top of his publishing career. With nowhere to go, he is sure to be a victim of the latest merger. He has the support of close friends and loyal clients; however, that is not enough for him to see any way out but down or out. Little does he know that he is being helped "out."

One night driving on a dark snowy road in Wisconsin, he encounters and collides with a wolf. Upon investigation of the situation he is nipped.

Turns out this could be the best/worst that that could happen. Now he finds the physical and mental agility to correct his misfortunes. All he needs is the support of a good woman (Michelle Pfeiffer).

Well played scenario. It is not your typical Wolfy movie. You find yourself rooting for Will who I think is Jack Nicholson being himself. One of my favorite scenes is where he is in the men's room and relives himself on a deserving weasel, stating, "I'm just marking my territory, and you got in the way."

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent horror film/character study
This is an interesting film, because it's partly a character study of a tired, middle aged publisher and partly a horror film about werewolves. Read more
