A wolf in executive's clothing
8 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A screenwriter is tasked with making a script out of his producer's idea for a werewolf movie but it hits a little too close to home with one Hollywood exec...

"Werewolf of Hollywood" would be Monsters last hurrah as the final four episodes that aired after this would not be nearly as good. It's a great satire, but it doesn't allow itself to get too corny and even comes across like a mystery at times.

Richard Belzer is great here. He is his usual droll, sarcastic self and it's a perfect fit here. You can certainly see some of the beginnings of his Law & Order: SVU character here but he plays it more for laughs. Geraldine Leer does a good job as his seemingly concerned co-writer and she's not hard to look at, either.

The story and script are very tight. It pokes fun at the Hollywood machine but knows to put it aside once the action starts. It doesn't take very long to get things rolling and it even throws a few decent twists at you along the way. Though there are some things that won't surprise and some that will, the story is very engaging from start to finish. There are much fewer inconsistencies than usual in the storyline and the ending is great.

The one thing that I hated about this episode was how terrible the werewolf looked. I actually thought he looked more like a pig. The phony fangs they put on the woman at the very end looked bad, too. If it weren't for this, I would given this episode an even higher score.

"Werewolf of Hollywood" is a surprisingly good episode. I didn't expect much going into it because there have already been hundreds of werewolf stories, but I was pleasantly surprised. It actually held my interest and me laugh a little. It's just so sad that everything else would be downhill from here.
