Storyline

Worn down and out of luck, aging publisher Will Randall is at the end of his rope when a younger co-worker snatches both his job and wife out from under his nose. But after being bit by a wolf, Will suddenly finds himself energized, more competitive than ever, and possessed with amazingly heightened senses. Meanwhile, the beautiful daughter of his shrewd boss begins to fall for him - without realizing that the man she's begun to love is gradually turning into the creature by which he was bit.

Goofs

When Will calls Laura to apologize and explain his running off the previous morning, he complains that he can hear her toweling her hair. This is supposed to illustrate his heightened perceptions. The trouble is, that telephones of the kind used in the film, purposely limit the audio frequencies they pass back and forth, to a narrow range in the human vocal spectrum, in order to reduce interference. Even with superhuman hearing, Will would not be able to hear sounds that were blocked from transmission. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Vijay Alezias: The demon wolf is not evil, unless the man he has bitten is evil. And it feels good to be a wolf, doesn't it?
Will Randall: Indeed it does.

Nicholson is a wolf... no surprise
4 December 2000 | by (Karlstad, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I like this film. It is different as a horror movie, because it really isn't a horror movie - and yet here we have a man turning into a wolf, he starts killing people at night, and we have the rabid horror music stalking our ears when the wolf is on the prowl.

I like the characters, I like the slow pace and the calm moments and I especially like Jack Nicholson when Randall's senses start to come alive. He is extremely well cast for this film, I don't think many others would actually convey the animal inside like he does. Pfieffer's character is, although formulaic, a relief among all the hard-assed men of this film. The ending is a bit silly, but nonetheless odd and intriguing.

Yep.I like this movie. It's fun to watch and it's great to see Nicholson act like the animal we all really think he is but don't dare to find out.
