Frank Crane, sheriff of Washington's Spork town, welcomes back his daughter Becca. However obvious the signs, she takes forever to recognize its Halloween-like decoration hardly masks the omnipresence of bizarrely clumsy vampires and werewolves, even in the case of her devoted youth friend Jacob White, whose canine traits extend from a tail to the irresistible urge to chase cats. She falls in love with sickly pale Edward Sullen, member of the depressed, bloodthirsty adopted family of Dr. Carlton. Written by
I am wondering why movies with "Suck" in the tile do exactly that? Well more or less. It's the second in a row and both use the word for vampires, though of course it is a game with words in this case. Very clever ... Not!
Then again the German title that took the "Twilight" and twisted it around might be one of the funniest things that came out of this movie. The movie itself though? Not good. The best scenes are in the trailer (who'd have thought?)!
But you have to really ask here: What were they aiming at? At what audience? Did they think that "Twilight" fans would run to watch this? Or that people who were appalled by the Twilight series in the first place, would be interested? Well whatever they were thinking, it would have been nice if they had put some thought into the movie, which they obviously did not do.
I came not expect anything from spoofs in recent years. And even those "expectations" were too much for this movie. With pop references that were almost extinct by the time this movie saw the light of day, you wonder who was supposed to laugh at those scenes. At least they seem to have had fun. Even the dreadful "Movie" series (Scary/Date et al) had at least one or two jokes that worked.
Don't waste your time and money on this. Even if you know you won't like the Twilight movies, it would make more sense watching one of those. You can make your own jokes ... and there is a great chance that yours will be way funnier than those on display here.
