Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cheesy but chipper vampire comedy has modest charms."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Vamps sends up our pop cultural fascination with bloodsucking but is itself a bit stiff with rigor mortis."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Evidently made on the cheap, notwithstanding the surprisingly classy cast, Vamps is a bit of a mess, but there's sweetness and wit here, too, making this a movie worth sinking your teeth into."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"A satire with much of the wit of her [Heckerling's] 1995 Clueless."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out Chicago
"In Amy Herckerling's film, being a vampire is ordinary rather than remarkable - which pretty much describes VAMPS."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"In an era transfixed by zombies and assorted other ghouls, Vamps is a refreshing change of pace."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Aging is probably the real theme here, but it's approached sidelong and has no punch. Still, only the nostalgia has any real conviction."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"At times, Heckerling's script feels as though it's been sitting in a coffin, as the film takes on a campy tone with its endless array of anachronistic sight gags and one-liners."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Vampire comedy has cute moments but lacks bite."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
""Vamps" teeters on the brink of not quite working and yet still routinely lands its laughs."
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
""Vamps" is mostly a misfire, but Heckerling still shows enough flashes of wit and wisdom that she remains hard to entirely dismiss."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"[This] shambling little comedy never finds a consistent groove, but it's eager to please, and has the ancient gags to do it."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"A playful flick about two female vampires, city life and the huge role of screens in our lives."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"While it did feel more like an extended sitcom to me than an actual film, I must say I found it fun."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"Bold, ambitious, but it's rarely funny. Heckerling works to squeeze out a few laughs along the way, but the punchlines are soggy and the situations a little too cartoonish at times, resembling a sketch comedy show about vampires."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
