An American Werewolf in Paris
A Video Review


Rated - R

It's 1:45 Long

A Review by
Stu Gotz
So I just got done watching "An American Werewolf in Paris" with the Dude, and I've got to say that I thought it was a great movie - The kind of movie a bunch of guys could sit around and watch while pushing back a few beers.  But then again…  If  a bunch of guys were sitting around drinking why wouldn't they be watching porn?  Anyway…  Unlike the movie that proceeded it, "An American Werewolf in London," this movie, whether intentionally done or not, was less serious and a lot more fun to watch.  Also, unlike the first installment, it seems that those involved spent less time on special effects (well, alright, the werewolves were pretty cool, and I suppose difficult to manage) and the whole legend thing, but were more concerned with keeping the audience entertained (I hope this is what they were going for, because if they were going for a classic thriller, this movie failed miserably.)  Plus there is some Grade A tail in this movie.  Again, another reason that makes this a guy movie and not a chick flick.

"An American Werewolf in Paris" tells the story of three goofball, daredevil, bungee jumping Americans in the wrong place at the wrong time.  When Andy (Tom Everett Scott) saves the life of the beautiful Serafine (Julie Delpy) by bungeeing off the Eiffel Tower as she throws herself to her hopeful death, he unwittingly gets himself caught up in the whole werewolf mystique.  One thing leads to another, yadda, yadda, yadda…  He's now a werewolf, one of his buddies is dead, and he falls for Serafine who, herself, is a werewolf.  This may all sound boring, but it's really not.  The movie's comedic action keeps you interested and there are a few unpredicted twists.  This is no Ms. Marble mystery, but it ain't 'Ernest Shoots his Foot,' or something.  So yadda, yadda, yadda (I miss "Seinfeld"), Andy and Serafine are being chased by the werewolves and cops through the sewers of Paris (yuck!).  In the end boy gets girl and the bad nasty werewolves are dead.

Predictable?  Sure, a little, but entertaining nonetheless.  That being the case I give "An American Werewolf in Paris" 4 out of 5 stars and highly recommend that you pick it up next time you're walking down the video rental aisle.  I'm Stu Gotz - 'Nuff said.
