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."
