Benicio Del Toro,
After a head injury alters her outlook on life, the uptight Director of Human Resources for a global company throws standard corporate practices out the window and inspires the business to strive for new ambitions and profits.
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 »
How would Stacey know her fangs are dingy when she can't see herself in a mirror and Goody couldn't have told her because she said she never thought about it and no one else knows she's a vampire, not enough to see her fangs anyway. See more »
Dr. Van Helsing:
Madam, you've insultingly confused us with the police. I'm from Time Warner, and if you ever want to see Jon Stewart again you'll open this door.

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!!
