Ahhh, if you're a closet romantic like me (I mean TRUE romantic about TRUE love, not Meg Ryan/J.Lo "wedding" movies) then this is a jewel in your crown.

Lovers torn assunder by a curse that transforms one into a Hawk by day and the other into a wolf at night. Sigh! (eyelashes flutter)

And chalk full of "before they were famous" stars! Matthew Broderick, Michelle Pfieffer and Rutger Hauer!

Also, I like Matthew Broderick's character as a comedic thief as this is what I tended to play when I DD&D'ed...

Papa Mikey!

I saw this SOOOO long ago...I really don't remember that much so I won't rate it, but I do remember that I didn't like it.

Ditto. But I WILL rate it. This was for D&D'ers.

Holy hell, Deril and I just rewatched this and it is LUDICROUSLY bad. I would change my rating to a bomb if I could, but no matter, Deril will bomb the hell out of it for sure.
Long plodding repeated scenes that go nowhere, Broderick talking to himself the whole time, FX taken out of the 'Manimal' textbook, a synth-keyboard soundtrack usually reserved for 'Rocky' montage scenes, and complete and total gayness up the wazoo.
Mikey, nostalgia aside I DARE you to sit and watch this again and not cringe at what a dork you are. Dork!

LOL!

I ACCEPT your challenge (about a re-watch, not about proving me to be a dork)...

But I also retort with the statement:

WHAT PIECE OF MEDIA (TV/MOVIE/PC/ETC) FROM THE 80's WASN'T GAYROMPING???!!!!
