"Vamps" Looks Like It's Trying to be "Clueless" but...Isn't [TRAILER]
All you really should have to say is Alicia Silverstone and Amy Heckerling and folks should come running to the theater in a wild stampede.
But one look at the new trailer for Vamps, the new project reuniting the Clueless director with her muse, and the anticipation sort of dwindles a bit. More on the movie below:
Beautiful vampires Goody (Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) have been enjoying the good life in New York City. As upstanding, politically correct Extended Life Forms (ELFs), the pair hit a support group, 'Sanguines Anonymous,' to help curb the temptation of human blood in between their clubbing and dating schedules. When love steals into each of their lives, the pair's destiny is set on a new course and they must make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality--and maybe much more.
Don't get me wrong....I'm still going to see this. But, as many have pointed out already, it looks like a vampier version of Clueless, minus the cleverness that made the previous film so perfect.
On the other hand, Silverstone and Ritter seem perfectly cast. But, overall, the movie just appears to be a poor ripoff. Oh, movie gods, please let me be wrong.
What do you think? Will you watch Vamps once it hits theaters November 2nd?
