It's not a profound movie, but it has some charming campy humor, as well as a a hilarious performance from Sigourney Weaver, who plays against type as an erratic, lusty vampire.

In "Vamps," Goody(Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy(Krysten Ritter) are roommates in New York City. They are also vampires. While they are at the beck and call of their stem, Ciccerus(Sigourney Weaver), they otherwise work nights as janitors. In her spare time, Stacy catches up on her studies where she makes the acquaintance of Joey Van Helsing(Dan Stevens).

Even if "Vamps" had a consistent tone to call its own, it would still probably be something of a frustrating near miss, considering how long it takes to get to its idea of a plot. In short, it is what happens when vampires get too cute. But just as much, the movie goes with gross out humor to illustrate the eating habits of vampires before turning silly and even a little touching. And then it has some neat cinematic and historical references and can be relevant when discussing the rapid change of technology which you do not have to be a two hundred year old vampire to be intimidated by. Most impressive of all is how "Vamps" was about five minutes ahead of the curve when warning about the dangers of government surveillance.

As random as all of that sounds, that is nothing compared to the casting because nothing sounds like a romantic interest like Richard Lewis. Otherwise, "Vamps" violates the first rule of buddy movies with Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter both operating on the same frequency. Dan Stevens is in the right movie but the wrong role while a de-fanged Malcolm McDowell is cute as a de-fanged Dracula. But all of that does not matter when the wonderful Wallace Shawn is on the screen, as he waits patiently for his very own action franchise.

Kinda cutesy fun, but ultimately nothing I see myself revisiting again and again, even if the leads are cute and some of the dialog is clever.

Worth a rental, but I don't think it'll be your new favorite thing.

Goody (Alicia 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. With their destinies at stake, the girls are faced with a difficult choice; give up their eternal youth for a chance at love, or continue to live their uncomplicated fabulously single lives forever.

also stars Dan Stevens, Wallace Shawn, Justin Kirk, Richard Lewis, Kristen Johnson, Malcolm McDowell and Sigourney Weaver.

directed by Amy Heckerling.

I have not seen this but from the reviews it's not as good as the original the original has Grace Jones she's a singer and actress she was in Conan the Destroyer she's a good actress that movie was okay I would give that 1 maybe 3 and a half stars nothing wrong with a Silverstone, I just can't see her being a vampire show still be known as the mother that threw up in her child's mouth like a bird or the airhead in clueless if you have a really no time this is 1 of those movies that you would watch 1 time.

This movie was directed by Amy Heckerling "Clueless" "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" "Look Who's Talking" among many others. Sure it's not going to win any awards but If you are a fan of Clueless and you like Vampires you should enjoy VAMPS. It's great to see Alicia Silverstone back! And filming 3-4 other movies for 2013! I missed her. Sigourney Weaver is also fun in this movie. The movie may not be a hit with the current generation, but like i said if you loved Clueless back in the day your in for a real treat, Sit back and enjoy this cheesy fun comedy/romance movie giving you deju-vu from 1995 all over again!

Vamps is a disappointed film. It is about two female vampires in modern-day New York City who are faced with daunting romantic possibilities. Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Amy Heckerling did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
