A sometimes entertaining mess. (The TV series is, shockingly, a whole lot better.)

A bloodless comic resurrection of the undead that goes serious just when it should get wild and woolly.

Buffy isn't funny or scary, it's just mediocre, slowly losing interest in itself as Kuzui runs out of imagination.

A film that bears the earmarks of having been made from the first draft of a script, then edited by someone who was not interested in the material.

Joss Whedon's script has some fun with Valley talk (both genuine and ersatz) but strains to sell the story.

The second half feels stretched out and muddled, as if screenwriter Joss Whedon drove a stake through his script.

As a friend tells Buffy while she eyes a fashion purchase, 'It's so five minutes ago.'

Flat comedy/horror flick that barely scratches the level of mediocrity in either genre.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer has a promising title and some good ideas, but fails to deliver the goods.
