Vampires Suck actually sucks...

It is boiling hot here in Los Angeles today = over 100 degrees fahrenheit! Woah. I guess summer is still here! ;)

A couple of days ago, I watched Vampires Suck, and I have to say that it actually really does suck.

Now, the trailer really makes it seem like an uber-funny movie - I am not a big fan of spoof movies, but I really thought this was gonna be good.

Here's the trailer:




The humor just wasn't really there. I became restless early on in the movie, and I kept on waiting for something to make me laugh. There were many times throughout the movie when I can actually hear crickets in my head because what I was watching just wasn't funny. There were a lot of stupid scenes - but, I know, it's a parody movie so I should have seen that coming.

To be fair, there were quite a few funny details in the movie, especially if you've seen both Twilight and New Moon. I also have to applaud the actors who played Edward, Becca, and Jacob - they were goooood! They got the facial expressions, body movement, and way of talking perfectly!

Scenes that were almost identical to the ones in the two movies made me laugh.

At first glance, they really look like the Cullens, haha!


Ken Jeong - haha, just think about his characters in other movies (The Hangover, Knocked Up...) and you'll start cracking up. His role as Daro isn't his best, but it's okay, he's a really funny person anyway.

Final Verdict: While there were some funny moments, I still think it was a pointless movie (but really, what should I expect, right?!). Not worth the time and money. If I was sitting at home with nothing to do, and it suddenly comes on HBO or something, then it's worth watching. But going to the theaters to see it? Hmm, definitely not the best decision I've made.

Have you seen Vampires Suck? What did you think of it? Are you planning to see it?

  11. You know, I normally HATE parodies (I feel like they are always just so stupid), but the previews for this one really made me think it looked good... Kind of a bummer to hear it was such a letdown.

  13. Ha, I saw the trailer right before Eclipse (which didn't help me like Eclipse I have to add) and thought it might be worth seeing but I think I'd find it ridiculous too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. S.I.F.-- same here! i don't normally like watching parodies, but this one looked promising to me, but yeah it was just a letdown. :(

    AGNES STYLE-- aw, sorry about that! but please see it if you really want to.

    Laura-- oh my gosh, i hated eclipse. good to know i'm not alone on that, haha!

  15. I and Bf watched this last weekend! I could not agree with you more! It really sucks! I even drifted off to sleep while watching it! It's not funny! It's boring! The jokes are so shallow and corny!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah the trailer is enticing but for spoof movies they often are :(

  17. As I've never seen the "Twilight" films before, something tells me I probably wouldn't enjoy this. :/

    ReplyDelete
  18. lol. I still can't believe this movie beat out Jennifer Aniston's "The Switch", what a slap in the face for her!

  22. i didn't even realize this was out--that's how much i did not want to see this movie. thank you; now it's official. most spoof movies pretty much suck, and i didn't think this was going to be good either. sorry you wasted your money. but that does look like ashley greene in the cafeteria scene, lol.

    spend your money on scott pilgrim instead. oh, rottentomatoes gave vampires suck 4%.

  25. I am likely going to watch this based on Ken Jong alone! His facial expressions kill me, as does this video with him in it (not ok for work)
