OK – so I'm not a big fan of the vampire phenomena, I did read the first book Twilight but I barely made it through and haven't ventured into the other books. When I heard they were spoofing the "vampires" I thought UGGH! So I went into the movie with an open mind expecting the worst!
I have to say it was surprisingly light hearted once I got into it, they used look alike actors and went almost scene-for-scene, word-for-words, prop-for-prop with the original saga. It seems like they were using jokes and saying the words that really wanted to be said during the original movie.
Yes, they used corny lines, and emphasized and overstated all of the obvious situations and characteristics of the original actors but it was like the comedy version of the original movie. Did she really bring a cactus? And what if it really was a mutant sized? And did her father really try to fight the guy in the wheelchair? And what if he really did throw a beat down to his defenseless friend?
I think they did a good job in spoof world, saying all of the things you really wanted to say about the characters – and yes, the rogue group of vampires really did look like the Black Eyed Peas.
It might be a video venture instead of a movie venture, I think. If you are a fan of the original saga, you might be mad at the fun they poke at this movie and you really have to have an appreciate of the original film to understand this one. It was fun enough, but wait for the DVD.
