Goody (Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are addicted to the night life, clubbing, hooking up and always looking for the next thrill, all the while keeping a big a secret-they happen to be modern-day vampires. But even with lifetimes of dating experience behind them, the duo realizes they still have a lot to learn about love when Stacy unexpectedly falls for the son of a vampire hunter, and Goody runs into the man of her dreams from decades earlier.

In an era transfixed by zombies and assorted other ghouls, Vamps is a refreshing change of pace.
"Vamps" is mostly a misfire, but Heckerling still shows enough flashes of wit and wisdom that she remains hard to entirely dismiss.
Vamps sends up our pop cultural fascination with bloodsucking but is itself a bit stiff with rigor mortis.
Aging is probably the real theme here, but it's approached sidelong and has no punch. Still, only the nostalgia has any real conviction.
The film's comedic potential is defanged by a pervading tone of embittered nostalgia. Goody doesn't mock our smartphone-loving society with barbed affection-she just wants it to go away.
At times, Heckerling's script feels as though it's been sitting in a coffin, as the film takes on a campy tone with its endless array of anachronistic sight gags and one-liners.
A playful flick about two female vampires, city life and the huge role of screens in our lives.
While it did feel more like an extended sitcom to me than an actual film, I must say I found it fun.
In Amy Herckerling's film, being a vampire is ordinary rather than remarkable - which pretty much describes VAMPS.
"Vamps" teeters on the brink of not quite working and yet still routinely lands its laughs.
Bold, ambitious, but it's rarely funny. Heckerling works to squeeze out a few laughs along the way, but the punchlines are soggy and the situations a little too cartoonish at times, resembling a sketch comedy show about vampires.
[This] shambling little comedy never finds a consistent groove, but it's eager to please, and has the ancient gags to do it.
Audience Reviews for Vamps
- Stacy: I didn't put in rollers! I'm gonna have coffin head tomorrow.
