WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
An American Werewolf In Paris, based on the characters created by John Landis for An American Werewolf In London, is the story of Andy (Tom Everett Scott) who, along with his two best friends, set off for a “daredevil tour of Europe.” When they hit upon the ultimate stunt—bungee jumping from the Eiffel Tower—Andy makes a heroic rescue of a sad, beautiful and mysterious woman (Julie Delpy) who is trying to end her life. Falling hopelessly in love with her, Andy soon discovers that the girl of his dreams is a nightmare.
