An American Werewolf in Paris (1997)

Directed by Anthony Waller.  Written Waller, Tim Burns and Tom Stern.  Starring Julie Delpy, Tom Everett Scott, Phil Buckman, Vince Vieluf and Julie Bowen.

Plot: an American tourist becomes involved with a French woman who ends up being a werewolf


An American Werewolf in London was a good movie.  This movie wasn’t.  So sorry to say.

3 young guys – Andy, Chris and Brad – go on a “Daredevil Tour” of Europe doing crazy, stupid, dangerous stuff, like attempting to bungee jump off the Eiffel Tower.  While up on the Tower though, Andy (Scott) sees a girl, Serafine (Delpy) jump off the Tower without a bungee cord.  He jumps off to catch her and so starts the main story line.

Serafine warns Andy to stay away from her, but he’s so attracted to her and worried about her that he refuses to do so.  This eventually gets him and his friends into a world of trouble.  They are invited to a party by Serafine’s “friends” and it turns out they’re werewolves, too, that really like the taste of Americans.


The movie is supposed to be funny, but it’s not really.  Also, the direction could’ve used some work, as well as the script.  It just wasn’t believable.  We didn’t really like any of the characters because they were so stupid.  The acting also left something to be desired, but we’re not sure why.  We’ve seen most of the actors act in other things and they were fine, but in this, they were a bit wobbly.  Perhaps, again, because the script needed work.  The end was corny, too, and the movie lost more points.

We don’t recommend this movie.  At all really.  There’s not enough good about it.

Our score: 30.
