Fine if we're looking at a nasty-minded satire about valley girls; less fine if we're looking at a funny-atop-serious fable about dealing with the end of high school .

Serves more as a fun guilty pleasure, but one that chooses to embrace the absurdity and run with it...

Production values are low and everything looks cheap, but the film punches above its weight and has a lot of heart.

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

Quite why Perry, as romantic interest, is still trying to convince peopel he is of high school age remains a mystery.

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

This pallid crossbreeding of vampire horror with Valley Girl vamping has no surprises.

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

Grease in the 80s... with Vampires. Ugh.

My favorite TV show is Buffy, I still can't believe it came from this horrible movie.

A slight, good-humored film that's a lot more painless than might have been expected.

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

I know I stand alone on this, but Kristy Swanson is the one true Buffy.
