A parody of Jane Austen's novel Emma, about Cher, a popular girl who spends her days playing matchmaker, helping friends with fashion choices, advising the new girl at school on a makeover, and looking for a boyfriend.
When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks in London, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguises herself as him, and proceeds to fall for one of her soccer teammates. Little does she realize she's not the only one with romantic troubles, as she, as he, gets in the middle of a series of intermingled love affairs.
In Manhattan, the vampires Goody and Stacy share an apartment and work and study in the night-shift. Goody was turned in vampire in 1840 by the evil Cisserus, who turned Stacy in the 90s, and they became best friends but Goody never told her real age to her friend. They only drink mice blood and refuse to drink human blood, and they go together to the Vampire Anonymous. Stacy falls in love with her classmate Joey, and soon she learns that he is the son of the vampire slayer Dr. Van Helsing. Meanwhile, Goody meets her former passion, Danny, in the hospital where his wife is terminal. When Stacy gets pregnant, Goody knows that the only way that the child can survive is killing Cisserus, since they would revert to their human ages. But nobody knows here her lair is. Written by

The statue in Times Square at the end of the movie where some of Goody's ashes land on is of George M. Cohan who wrote the song "Give my Regards to Broadway". The song then plays during the credits. See more »
When Stacy gives Joey the reports she wrote for him, she is holding one with a report cove with a red spine in her right hand, and a clear spine in her left hand. In one shot, they briefly switch hands. See more »
Alright! Forget cell phones, forget iPhones, forget PowerBooks, forget iPads.
Now, I can do everything I want with my iPad mini.
That looks just like your phone...
But it doesn't make calls. I got my tweets, I got my emails, I got my friends, I got my alerts, I got my Angry Birds...
So as the day progresses you can read thousands of unsolicited messages, advertisements, and the mindless brain vomit of acquaintances...
Someone sounds hormonal, maybe you're pregnant too!
Ugh, its so ...

I saw this movie and died laughing. I'm a huge Heckerling fan of course, and Vamps fits right into her already ridiculously impressive catalog. Alicia Silverstone is hilarious and adorable, and Krysten Ritter is even better than she was on Breaking Bad (which is practically impossible in my opinion.) This could be my favorite Silverstone movie of the decade, just sayin'. Wallace Shawn is ruthlessly hilarious as always, and Sigourney is at her most devilish. And then out of no where, Justin Kirk shows up (Uncle Andy, from Weeds) and he had me cracking up from his vampire accent. And Malcolm McDowell too... this cast is stacked. The movie is a real delight. Fingers crossed for a sequel!!
