Vamps is a chick flick. It would most likely get a five star review at a Taylor Swift concert. Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter play two vampires in the modern dating era. Alicia dates back to the 1840's and has trouble adjusting to modern gadgets, while Krysten is at home with them. Both of the women develop love interests. Alicia meets an old boyfriend (Richard Lewis) from the 1960's while Krysten falls for a man named Van Helsing (Dan Stevens) who has a father who hunts vampires.
The Vamps are part of a support group who only drink animal blood. The jokes consist of mostly lame vampire humor such as women attempting to apply make-up without a mirror. There is one scene where Alicia is looking through pictures of old boyfriends. One of the pictures is Edgar Allen Poe. There were some scenes that worked and were funny. Unfortunately too much of the film had humor and scenes that didn't make it for a mature audience. Definitely only a rental. A sometimes fun film you might want to see once.
Parental Guide: 1-f-bomb, implied sex, no nudity.
