Jack Nicholson becomes a werewolf in this bizarre comedy-horror film directed by Mike Nichols. Nicholson plays Will Randall, a book editor with a testosterone deficit who has just been sacked at his publishing firm by a new boss, Raymond Alden (Christopher Plummer). A colleague, Stewart Swinton (James Spader), whom Randall thought was his friend, betrays him. Randall's personality changes after he hits a wolf with his car and gets bitten by the creature. He immediately feels more powerful, has heightened hearing and vision, and sets about to right the wrongs in his life. He visits Alden at the publisher's mansion to protest his dismissal, and he is asked to leave -- but Alden's daughter Laura (Michelle Pfeiffer) asks him to stay for lunch. Laura loves to defy her father. Will tells her about the wolf bite, and she becomes attracted to him. But because werewolves usually kill the ones they love, Laura is in danger. Will reasserts his place in the publishing world, supported by his loyal secretary Mary (Eileen Atkins), and his relationship with Laura deepens. ~ Michael Betzold, All Movie Guide

Did anyone try on this movie? SO BAD, almost great by johelinedvd April 17, 2002 - 11:34 AM PDT

One of the worst movies that you ever have the misfortune of seeing. (I'll preface this by saying that I saw it on a road trip when we couldn't get tickets to the July 4th ball game and fireworks show at the newly opened Jacob's Fields and had to find shelter somewhere). Jack seemed to take this role for the cash and the chance to get it on with Pfeiffer. Jack obviously got no play, because his work here is from a very dull boy. Pfeiffer seemed more concern with trying to keep a dirty old man off of her than acting or her career. Nichols must have been wondering how far he must have fallen to go from the Graduate to this trash. Spader was caught in the crossfire, but no one is an innocent bystander here. The score is equally awful: Scales played faster/slower/louder/softer to match the on screen action.
It was so bad, capping off an equally disasterous road trip, that this movie started to get entertaining halfway through because it is so bad and it just gets worse. We couldn't stop laughing by the end, and we had no alcohol! If ever a bad movie came close to going through the black hole to become great. Too bad they didn't make it. Is there anything lower than a 1??
