Jack Nicholson is on a dark, winding road when his car leaves him stranded in an abandoned field and he is attacked by ravenous wolves. The next day he starts noticing hair in funny places on his body and can suddenly hear what’s going on in his office building thirty floors above him. Then the real trouble starts: with each full moon, murders begin to pop up in Central Park, caused by a vicious beast that no one can make head nor tails of (literally!). Michelle Pfeiffer gives the film a lot of glamour as the love interest, a wealthy benefactor’s daughter who sympathizes with Nicholson’s plight to return to normality, and the supporting cast is rounded out by Christopher Plummer, (who has the film’s best lines) and Kate Nelligan. Nothing spectacular, but fun enough if you do commit yourself to it.

    Michelle Pfeiffer didn’t have much to do in Wolf but is still good within. She does that animal lust lurking within the perfect human specimen thing really well: Ladyhawke, Batman Returns, Wolf and Dangerous Liaisons. On a more superficial note of when she was at her most beautiful, I submit that it was as Laura Alden in Wolf.
