A sometimes entertaining mess. (The TV series is, shockingly, a whole lot better.)
| Original Score: 2/5
October 15, 2007
A bloodless comic resurrection of the undead that goes serious just when it should get wild and woolly.
July 30, 2012
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.

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 .

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

Grease in the 80s... with Vampires. Ugh.
January 1, 2000
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.'
February 28, 2002
Barely watchable.

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

From this whole thing, who comes out the best? Paul Reubens! Who knew?

January 1, 2000
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.
