The way to your heart!
This modern vampire comedy is about a man stuck between two gorgeous women, attractive for their respective reasons. Only half the jokes are funny. The other half are deeply embarrassing. You’ll certainly be judged by your peers if you even giggle. The film contains a lot of predictable cliched vampire gags; jokes about raw meat, sunglasses, coffins and the color black.
The soundtrack is fun and cheesy, and it eventually converges in one of the most awkward, yet fascinating dance scenes ever filmed. Here’s Jim Carrey in his incubative stage. He’s the clumsy joker. His two friends are disposable and are only here to glorify him. Lauren Hutton plays the classy, seductive vampire and Karen Kopins the cute girlfriend next door.
The venereal disease analogy is obvious and turned into a joke. There are bad puns at every turn. Some moments are so poorly filmed that they’re hard to take seriously. That Hollywood scene sure looks silly. The most expensive shots aren’t necessarily the greatest. The last act is particularly exciting, and the speed phone dating absolutely bonkers.
