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

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

Unfocused stuff, pitched at undemanding teenagers.

A slight, good-humored film that's a lot more painless than might have been expected.
| Original Score: 3/5

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

The jokes are pretty good, the premise is just off-the-wall enough to keep you tittering.

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