Cheesy but chipper vampire comedy has modest charms.

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.

[This] shambling little comedy never finds a consistent groove, but it's eager to please, and has the ancient gags to do it.

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.
