An American Werewolf in Paris is really a mockery of a serious horror movie, but that in itself makes it remarkably entertaining. The characters dance through this movie mimicking every monster movie you've ever seen, and make this much more of a comedy than a horror flick.

Handsome Tom Everett Scott stars as the American Werewolf in Paris. After climbing the Eiffel Tower one night, with the intention of bungee-jumping from it (like security wouldn't stop you from doing that!), he saves the life of a beautiful girl who is about to jump - without a bungee cord. In the process of saving the suicidal girl, he falls off the tower, but is miraculously saved by his bungee cord. When he snaps back up, he hits his head on a pillar, and is knocked unconscious. He wakes up in a hospital and desperately wants to find the girl whose life he saved. Bad idea - in the process, he is attacked by a werewolf, and naturally becomes one himself. Now he can hunt humans with his newly located new girlfriend.

It's a dog's life - well, a wolf's, actually, if you want to get technical. Several undead spirits chase them, as well as some evil fellow werewolves. At one point, before he becomes fully aware of what has happened to him, he eats an almost raw, bloody steak, licking his fingers and making disgusting noises. This had me howling with laughter, no pun intended. Later, while making out with a girl on top of a gravestone, he begins turning into a werewolf. Talk about not impressing a date! Once the transformation is complete, he kills her, and then is haunted by her (she's one of the undead spirits mentioned above).

For a howling good time (pardon the pun again, they just keep popping up!), see An American Werewolf in Paris.
