Yes They Do

In the same vein as the humour of Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie, etc., etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum, we have Vampire Movie. One positive note: it's short. And, hey, I actually smiled 4 times... laughed out loud once...

However, on the negative side, this is all about Twilight. As in the first half of the movie was taking off the first one, and then the second two were heavily compressed further. Admittedly it was about as sensible as the original movies, and a lot more palatable (as it is shorter), but if you've seen the originals, then you've seen this, as the writers simply repeated many of the moments of the other movies and tried to make them funny. See above for how amusing I found it.

Jenn Proske and Matt Lanter replicate the two leads well, and indeed there are several good picks for casting to the actors. Fortunately the movie doesn't go for heavy effects (aside from the broken body moments), and it explains glittering vampires far better than Meyer ever did.

If you haven't seen the originals (and why would you want to?), just see this instead... although I'm not really recommending seeing this either. On the other hand, in many ways, this is far better than Twilight will ever be.
