Product Description

On the strength of his Hitchcockian-thriller debut, Mute Witness, writer-director Anthony Waller was hired to direct this belated sequel to the 1981 horror comedy An American Werewolf in London, but lycanthropy in the City of Light just ain't what it used to be. The movie offers plenty of gruesome makeup and special wolf-transformation effects, and there are some effectively spooky moments in the plot involving an underground population of hungry Parisian werewolves. One of them is seductively played by Julie Delpy, who is rescued from attempted suicide by an American tourist (Tom Everett Scott, from That Thing You Do!) but ultimately can't hide her dual identity when darkness falls and the full moon shines. The movie begins well, but gradually succumbs to nonsense and mayhem, prompting critic Roger Ebert to observe that "here are people we don't care about, doing things they don't understand, in a movie without any rules." In other words, you'd have to be a die-hard horror buff to give this one the benefit of the doubt. --Jeff Shannon

Horror. Nudity. Not suited for children.

It was not as good as "An American Werewolf in London". I feel like watching "An American Werewolf in London", again, but not "An American Werewolf in Paris".

"An American Werewolf in Paris" was just another horror flick that contained nudity.

The music was noisy (lots of punk rock) and not great. The plot was somewhat entertaining. There were lots of 'loose ends', at the end, though. So, the film was also somewhat disappointing/frustrating, but this shortcoming was not not a 'deal-killer'. I guess that was because the movie was weak/tedious, from the start. So, by the end, my expectations were already low.

Thus, the film was 'passable', but it could have been much-better.

Bottom Line: I'm glad I saw "An American Werewolf in Paris", because I had seen "An American Werewolf in London" and, so, was curious about the sequel.

Yet, I do not want to see "An American Werewolf in Paris" again.

Furthermore, if you have already seen "An American Werewolf in London", then you can go through life quite easily without seeing "An American Werewolf in Paris"; it is not another "An American Werewolf in London".

I enjoyed "American Werewolf In London:, but I will admit. This one went all wrong. They should not be afraid in doing a remake on this one. The only traits that I seen in this one that originates from American Werewolf In London, is that the crowd was convincing. No superstition to accentuate this film which should be a signature from the first one. The CGI effects are not bad at all (could be better). I do recommend however, that it is worth watching the first time. If they do a remake I also recommend owning a copy of this one just to have the original. It would be like the movie "The Punisher" which the remake is better. Should do a "An American Werewolf In Germany" (where a lot of werewolf legends overflow for a good night read). Maybe Russia or Scotland?

This movie isn't the badest werewolf movie I ever seen, but it's because there is much competition. This movie is a shame, an error, a disease.
I watch all the werewolf movies I can, and I think this one took all the good stuff in all and use it as badly as possible.
The best thing is possibly that this movie is a racist manifestation against France, where werewolfs in Paris have nothing to do but kill Americans.
Don't think you can at least see good horror scene: this movie is made form children. There is less graphic violence than in Star Wars Episode I. There is at least one scenaric error all the 15 minutes. And all the good stuff is stollen from other movies, mainly «An American Werewolf In London», by far best.
Not he badest, but not far.

Thanks to George Gershin's American in Paris, An American Werewolf in Paris was a natural after An American Werewolf in London--I was even calling the first film that as a not terribly funny joke when it came out. American Werewolf in London was a terrific film, breaking new grounds in werewolf transformations--they were truly astonishing, revoltingly gory bubbling hideous seeping stretching changes that made the audience realize how truly horrifying and painful becoming a werewolf would be. And then there was the lead character's best friend, a tortured corpse who kept decaying in disgusting detail throughout the film. To top it off, all this absolutely innovative and realistic special effects was matched with a smart, funny script, terrific acting, and a witty soundtrack--it's still one of the best horror films ever made.
So it's no surprise that a sequel would be made, and it's no surprise that the sequel falls short, especially given that none of the major personalities involved in the original returned. Directing, script, acting, special effects, music, are all in different and apparently less proficient hands. It's not that American Werewolf in Paris is a bad movie, not by a long shot, but it pales in comparison to its parent.
Two major weaknesses mar the film. The first, and most serious, is that it all too often tries too hard to be funny, and falls flat. Most of the humor is abandoned toward the end in favor of action and at that point the movie improves, but early scenes made me suspect the whole thing was going to be a failure. The second flaw is that the CGI werewolves are really inferior They blend badly with the live action at several points, and frankly it's almost always hard to really make them out, especially their faces.

"An American Warewolf In Paris," while not nearly as good as its predecessor "An American Warewolf In London," offers plenty of genuine entertainment to stand on its own. Andy (Tom Everett Scott) and two of his friends travel to Paris. One night while attempting a stunt off the top of the Eiffel Tower, he sees a woman (Julie Delpy) who is about to jump off and fall to her death. He saves her life and is instantly mesmerized by her. But there's something about her that he doesn't know: a full moon will bring out the beast in her, literally. Of course, he eventually gets bitten and the fun begins.
I suppose I should mention the film's shortcomings first and get that out of the way. For one, it relies on CGI for the warewolf scenes. It's rather unconvincing most of the time. And second, the blend of horror and comedy simply does not work as it did in "An American Warewolf In London." Not to overly compare the two, but "An American Warewolf In Paris *is* technically its sequel and therefore must be compared at least somewhat.
But that's really all there is in terms of flaws. Everything else about it works. Tom Everett Scott is great in his role and Julie Delpy is excellent as the mysterious and beautiful woman who steals his heart. And her nude scene, while brief, is certainly a nice bonus!
I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoyed "An American Warewolf In London" or anyone who just likes a brainless scary flick. It may not be the greatest horror film of all time but it's definitely a lot of fun.
