The basic premise has some real Medieval romance about it: a pair of hexed lovers -- a man by day and wolf by night, a woman by night and hawk by day -- doomed never to come together flesh to flesh. (They have apparently not explored the bestiality options.) The solution to their predicament -- "A night without day, a day without night? What's that supposed to mean?" -- becomes a bit over-obvious before we get to it. And on the way, we have to go through sheets and sheets of Vittorio Storaro's honeyed light, a lot of distressingly disco music, massive doses of comic "relief" from young Matthew Broderick (who acts, and almost looks, like a son of Jerry Lewis), and terrifically unexciting action scenes which more resemble a first, slow, tentative rehearsal than an actual "take" and "print." Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Leo McKern; directed by Richard Donner. (1985) — Duncan Shepherd
