“Wolf Like Me” review

‘Wolf Like Me’ Review: Josh Gad, Isla Fisher Shine in Peacock’s New Dramedy

In “Wolf Like Me,” Josh Gad plays Gary, a widowed father, struggling to raise his troubled 11-year-old daughter Emma (Ariel Donoghue). When Mary (Isla Fisher) literally crashes into their lives, Gary’s astounded to see how quickly Mary can reach his anxiety-riddled kid. Soon an emotional love affair takes off. But, Mary can’t escape into the fantasy family because she’s carrying around a potentially deadly secret that the six-episode show’s title hints at. But no matter how fast or far Mary runs, the universe keeps shoving Gary into her path.

Abe Forsythe, best known for writing “Little Monsters,” a charming 2019 movie that imagines zombies threatening a kindergarten class, brings werewolves to the classic rom-com in “Wolf Like Me,” whose six half-hour episodes all drop on Peacock on January 13. Forsythe’s writing brings out the best in Gad. Usually relegated to over-the-top caricature, a role he’s performed well over the years, Gad here stretches his wholesomeness to showcase a range of pain, confusion and anger. Fisher shines here as well. It’s been over a decade since her fabulous turn as Rebecca Bloomwood in “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” But Fisher’s always possessed the talent of a leading lady in projects like “The Great Gatsby” and “Arrested Development.” Here, she plays up a tender heart hiding behind wall of quick-witted jokes.

Donoghue, as the suicidal and depressed Emma, proves an impressive talent to watch. Holding her own with veterans in a subdued role would be a challenge for any actor. She flashes a sliver of hope waiting for Gary to be honest about his feelings, and her panic attacks are frighteningly authentic.
