A so-so sequel with some good effects

"Being a big fan of the John Landis original I decided to give this movie a chance and sat down with some popcorn and soda and hit "play." Moments later I was shaking my head and pondering switching to one of my favorite television shows. This movie is a pale imitation of the original `American Werewolf in London' and I imagine that the director of that 1981 classic John Landis was none to pleased to be associated with this production (in the credits it refers to using characters from the original). Right from the get-go we can tell though that whereas the original had a wicked dry streak of humor to it (one of the tracks was `Blue Moon') this one is instead going to take a more slapstick approach. As the movie begins we join three American friends who are on a round Europe trip taking a series of daredevil stunts. Being obviously hormone driven (they all eye-up a French girl on the train and discuss how European girls are more sophisticated), I would venture a guess they would feel quite at home in a Farrelly brothers production. Upon arrival in the French capital they sneak onto the Eiffel Tower at night and as one of them prepares to bungee jump off the top some quick thinking allows the hapless hero to save a girls life. Left with only the girls shoe the three track down the girl down after which time they discover her deep secret. This may be some people's idea of a great or fun movie. Personally though it was not mine and afterwards I did switch to watch Prue, Piper and Phoebe battle demons and warlocks. One bright spot this movie does have is some pretty nifty werewolf effects"
Not a sequel just another werewolf movie

"For those that waited all these years for a sequel to the classic American Werewolf in London, the wait is not over.
American adventurers looking for thrills across Europe decide to bungy jump from the Eiffel Tower. But there is a beautiful woman who is going to commit suicide by jumping. One of the boys jumps to her rescue. But her secret is she is a werewolf and accidentally infects him.
Well, it turns out that there is a pack of werewolves in Paris and they feed on Americans. (Let's talk obvious stereotyping.) While at times it is good (especially when Julie Delpy is on screen).
Don't waste your time watch the original!!!"

""An American Werewolf in Paris" is quite possibly one of the worst movies I have ever observed. Don't even try to compare this to the classic "An American Werewolf in London". This movie is about as scary as "The Naked Gun", the acting is pathetic and the plot for this movie is horrible...I can not even bear to rehash it to you. There is nothing creepy or remotely scary about this movie...it is just plain stupid.
Also, the werewolves in this movie look like some kind of a joke. I tried to keep an open mind, but basically, I could barely finish this movie and the best thing about it was when it was over and I did not have to watch anymore. Total waste of time. I mean basically, this movie is a total "ZERO" and my recommendation to you is not to even think of wasting your time on this flick."
Pretty good movie.

"First off, if you expect to see anything about David Kessler and Jack Goodman (The main characters in "An American Werewolf in London") don't watch this. It has nothing to do with any of those characters. It is it's own movie and having said that, let me add it's pretty good too. Although the f/x in "London" were much better as was the story, this still holds it's own. It has lot's of genuine scares as well as laughs, the f/x were o.k. too (Although Rick Baker should have been called back in.) If you are looking for a movie that doesn't make fun of the whole genre like the "Howling" sequels did, you will like this one. I highly recommend it."
Pretty Bad Werewolf Flick

"This movie is sequel in name only to the werewolf classic film "An American Werewolf in London". The plot is silly. The bad guys are goofy rather than menacing. The ending has to be one of the lamest that I have ever seen for a horror movie. The only things I liked about this movie were the werewolf effects and the delicious Julie Delpy. This movie was made in the 1990s and stands as proof that the decade served as a dry spell for good horror films. Buy at your own risk!!"
