The film, despite having a relatively uninspired storyline with plenty of humor that falls flat, is actually not that bad when compared to most other movies that have lycanthropy as the main plot point. It was also not a box office bomb-- its earnings exceeded its budget by a few million dollars. Regardless, it is not widely regarded as a good movie and fans almost universally prefer ''An American Werewolf in London'' to this film.

The story is centered on Andy [=McDermott=] (Tom Everett Scott), an American student who is traveling in Europe with his two friends when he falls in love with a French girl named Serafine (Julie Delpy), after saving her life during her suicide attempt. He tracks her down in attempt to [[strike:get in her pants]] woo her, and eventually winds up getting invited to a club by one of her friends, who promises that she'll be there too. The club turns out to be a trap, where the owners lock the doors, transform into werewolves and feast on the unwitting patrons. One of his friends is killed, but Andy escapes... with just a bite. He is surprised to wake up in Serafine's bedroom, who is kind enough to take off her shirt for [[strike:[[{{Fanservice}} the audience]]]] him, offer him a glass of [[LudicrousGibs freshly-pureed hearts]] and tell him he's a werewolf now... and she would know, because she's one too.

* PsychoSerum: The serum that Serafine's stepfather created was his attempt to synthesize a medication that would ''prevent'' her from turning into a werewolf. Instead, it caused her to transform instantly, and rip his legs off.

* TheSocialDarwinist: Claude gives a speech saying he hates institutions like hospitals and charities because their only purpose is to extend the lives of the weak, in turn weakening the human race as a whole. Combined with FantasticRacism, he also considers werewolves like himself to be superior than ordinary humans.

''An American Werewolf in Paris'' is a spin-off of ''AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'' that was released to lukewarm reviews (at best) in 1997. It includes some of the elements of its predecessor, such as attempts at lighthearted humor and having a werewolf's victims appear as mutilated ghosts. What it lacks, and what caused many reviewers to complain, are the [[BodyHorror brutal yet enthralling make-up effects]] of the first movie, which have been replaced with a heavy dose of CGI.
