Quotes

Peter Loew: Shouldn't the copy be in that file? It should, right?
Dr. Glaser: Yes.
Peter Loew: Yep, yep, yep, yep.
Dr. Glaser: Unless, of course, it's somehow been somehow misfiled.
Peter Loew: Misfiled?
Dr. Glaser: Yes, misfiled. Sometimes somebody puts a document in the wrong file and it's misfiled. It makes it much harder to find.
Peter Loew: Who? Who? Who do you mean, who? How could somebody MISFILE something? What could be easier? It's all alphabetical. You just PUT it IN the right file! According to ALPHABETICAL ORDER! You know - A, B, C, D, E, F, G!

very, very misunderstood
1 April 2001 | by (istanbull, turkey) – See all my reviews

Vampire's Kiss is a comedy. In no way is it supposed to be akin to legitimate vampire movies. It parodies horror films and satirizes life in the big city, much like other popular films, such as American Psycho, do. In my opinion, Vampire's Kiss is much better than American Psycho because instead of trying to be creepy and ultimately failing, Vampire's Kiss is hilarious. I gave it a ten. I'm certain that I'll be seeing it over and over again.

ME, 2006: Looking back at this comment about the film and writing anew from a later date, I can certainly recognize why this movie isn't for everyone. If you are a fan of absurd, inane, dark, wry humor, and you enjoy watching movies for subtlety and detail THIS IS IT. Watch out for the mimes, and enjoy.
