Trivia

The theatrical movie was well known for its signature song played during the disco sequence, the disco classic "I Love the Nightlife" sung by Alicia Bridges. Due to licensing issues, the song has been removed from most TV broadcasts and all DVD transfers, and replaced by a different song, a cover version of "The Man That I Love". The Bridges song is still listed in the closing credits, and is also heard on the original trailer (included on the DVD) which had it excerpted no less than three times. Fans of the song and the movie worldwide have been furious about its removal from the DVD release. Fortunately, "I Love the Night Life" was restored for the Region 1 Blu-ray released by Shout! Factory in 2015. See more »

Goofs

My all time favorite movie
14 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Say what you would like about Apocolypse Now, the Godfather, the Terminator films, the Alien series, Jaws, Rocky, Casablanca, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, or even (gulp) the Star Wars Trilogy, but Love at First Bite is for me the all time greatest movie ever. I cannot escape the Dracula legend (In fact my first and middle name is Christofer Lee) so it only seems fitting that this is my favorite. I love the story of Dracula coming to "modern" New York, and falling in love with a swinging super model. It is full of the most hilarious things ever committed to film (Art Johnson anyone?). Some of the funniest things are unintentional, it is so seventies and it even picks up some of the things that are today clichés about the decade (again it is my man Art).

The funniest banter between movie characters is at the beginning of the movie when Renfield identifies Gov't officials by the fact that they wear shoes. Get a copy of this, watch it and laugh for the next week. Everybody email WB and get them to release a DVD.

My Rating **** 10/10 and 3 thumbs up. As always I encourage the free flow of ideas. God Bless!
