An American Werewolf in Paris

Factual error: When Serafine turns into a werewolf, her knees bend backward and turn into hocks (the equivalent of the human ankle). And her upper leg bones bend forward to become stifles (the equivalent of the human knee. Since wolves and humans have very similar leg structure, there would be no need for her joints to do this. All that would really be needed is a lengthening of her bones from her ankles downward. Instead, she now has an extra set of joints in her leg.

Suggested correction: She is also transforming into a mythical creature and the fact that her bones change at all ignore any factual or physiological truths. Thus her bones can change however they want and there's nothing to suggest her ankles don't change unseen, leaving her with no extra joints. Even with extra joints, there's nothing to suggest werewolves don't have a different physiological structure than humans and wolves.

Mistakes

Much of this movie was shot in Luxembourg, not in Paris. This is obvious on several occasions - the road signs are clearly not like the French standard. You even see a sign to »Trier (Trèves)«. In Paris, there would be no signs to this German town...and even if there was, these would say »Trèves«. The buses also have French registration plates but are from Luxembourg companies.

Trivia

When this movie was released to DVD in Australia, the ending had Andy running to the hospital where Seraphine had just given birth to Andy's child. The baby opens its eyes and the eyes are yellow, indicating that the baby is a werewolf. Later DVD releases had the ending where Andy and Seraphine bungee jump off the Statue of Liberty.
