I saw this movie and died laughing. I'm a huge Heckerling fan of course, and Vamps fits right into her already ridiculously impressive catalog. Alicia Silverstone is hilarious and adorable, and Krysten Ritter is even better than she was on Breaking Bad which is practically impossible in my opinion. This could be my favorite Silverstone movie of the decade, just sayin'. Wallace Shawn is ruthlessly hilarious as always, and Sigourney is at her most devilish. And then out of no where, Justin Kirk shows up Uncle Andy, from Weeds and he had me cracking up from his vampire accent. And <more>
Malcolm McDowell too... this cast is stacked. The movie is a real delight. Fingers crossed for a sequel!!
be patient with the movie and forgiving (by email@example.com)
Play along with the jokes, this movie has heart - the nostalgia for the past is authentic and real, and the ending, amazingly has a much deeper meaning, with statements made by both main characters intended for the living, and for life - and love - you give your best to someone , and time moves on, youth is fleeting, and lacks meaning, the only real meaning is way beyond skin deep. . I doubt many picked out the far deeper message, it was truly a shock in a comedy, but is a great tribute to the best in these actors, who span generations, and ages, reflectively, to the movie's theme. . very <more>
Laugh a minute - very witty and funny (by phd_travel)
This vampire comedy is very witty, cute and laugh out loud funny. There were so many jokes and original ones too. More subtle humor than the Leslie Nielsen spoof movie with Mel Brooks which is a bit obvious.Amy Heckerling of Clueless directs this winner. Alicia is her charming self and Kriten Ritter is her sidekick. Good supporting cast from Sigourney Weaver why doesn't she do more comedy - she's so funny to Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens.This should have been a box office hit - don't understand why it more or less went to DVD.Watch it!
A Fun Film (by synikk)
I can't believe how many negative opinions surround this film. I mean granted, its not Oscar worthy or going to go down in time as one of those incredible films, but the humor, sarcasm and light hearted tone are greatly enjoyable. Perhaps some people cannot vibe with the blunt somewhat twisted humor, but I loved it.This is a film for people who want to simply watch something fun. It's never serious and simply a parody. The cast and acting were excellent and I really liked seeing all the stars. I think this movie makes fun of the current state of our culture and perhaps that is what <more>
annoys some viewers. It also attacks our cultural vampire-obsession which has become quite ridiculous in my opinion. So, perhaps this is not a movie for twilight fans as it may ruffle their feathers? I don't know.As a fan of vampire films and light hearted comedies, this film fully delivered for me. It's kind of got a feel good vibe but also a lot of demented moments. Perfect for me : I would recommend to anyone who likes vampire movies, comedies or cheeky dramas with some slightly twisted humor.
Well it was a silly movie,but in a good way since I enjoyed it! It's story of two vampire girl friends living as normal as they can in the nights of NY being roommates, they share an apartment, and sleep in two coffins, ahahah . Some things they were doing were actually hilarious. The ending could be said to be bitter-sweet, but definitely left me with a good vibe. No masterpiece of vampire movies, but right for a fun night. Alicia Silverston and Krysten Ritter were a good vampire couple, and I can't say anything bad about the supporting cast. I hadn't seen Sigourney Weaver in a <more>
long time, so it was quite a surprise. She is quite good at comedy, should do more!
Surprise! - Now I like Vampires a lot more (by AthenaStardear)
Starting with the end, I felt refreshed and positive after watching this. Movies like that score at least 8/10.This movie stands apart since most of the "Vamps" are unanimously endearing. I can think of a lot of movies that aren't like that.Funny to say the least. Great laughs when I wasn't expecting it.Almost extraterrestrial in some surprising ways, with a sustaining image reminiscent of a few sci-fi flicks.Pokes fun at groups that could stand a few pokes.Might be a harder sell for some in the "under 20" crowd.Certainly under-rated at the time I wrote this when <more>
the IMDb was only 4.7. A solid 8/10 overall and consider the occasional "comic" budgeted CGI a positive.
