Jesus, 'Thou shalt not watch horror films, and if you do, thou shalt not enjoyit.' Aren't creative products of other spirits, made to be enjoyed? Is enjoyment a sinful thing? Will you go to hell for compiling a best of films list? I eagerly anticipated this one when it was released, for my guy Jack starred in it. He was a little old at the time, for this role, although the civilization scenes were authentic-seeming. Ms. Pfeiffer was always good to see, acting. As she was, here. Famous comedy director, Mike Nichols, directed, and did a competent job. All in all, there was nothing new, here. Thus, the lackluster rating.

I thought this was a very interesting movie and very funny. Jack Nicholson was perfect for the part, as was Michelle Pfeiffer.

I'm not someone who generally likes horror flicks or slasher movies. This film had a little bit of gore, but relatively little as things go in films. It was interesting -- the idea that becoming like a primal beast would be contagious from being bit by a wolf (which I guess we must presume was a werewolf).

The human side of the story seemed to me the most accented part of the story.

I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't like it, but I found it a satisfying watch.

Older man, seemingly a victim of ennui both at work and in his home life/marriage inexplicably finds himself sensing things he never sensed before.

James Spader plays the upstart arrogant person climbing the latter in Nicholson's company who has been grating on Nicholson's nerves (as he would anyone; a real creep).

Michelle Pfeiffer is the rebellious daughter of an ultrarich man who decides to make a confidante of Nicholson, decades her senior (not to mention married).

Strange things happen. Relationships are affected. A little bit sexy but not overly so. A bit crude, but again not really over the top.

Entertaining, but probably no real moral value in watching it.
