Young student finds himself being transformed to a vampire after a night with a quite attractive female vampire. First, he does not quite believe it himself, but with the help of a 300 year old teacher and the handbook "vampirism - a guide to an alternative lifestyle", he finds out that blood does not taste as bad as he expected. Of course, he does not bite women, as a good guy he sticks to pig blood which is offered by the local butcher as a special offer for vampires. Trouble rises when a vampire hunter tries to track him down with wooden sticks and silver bullets...Written by

In Houston, the teenager Jeremy Capello (Robert Sean Leonard) is a normal middle-class boy, who lives with his beloved parents and has Ralph as his best friend. He has a crush on Darla Blake (Cheryl Pollak), but he is shy and does not date her. He works making deliveries for a supermarket and is seduced by his sexy client Nora (Cecilia Peck). While having his first intercourse with her, Jeremy is transformed in a vampire. His friend Ralph is mistakenly chased by two weird vampire hunters, Prof. Leopold McCarthy (David Warner) and his assistant Grimsdyke (Paul Wilson), that believe he is a creature of the night. Meanwhile, Jeremy learns how to use his new powers with Modoc (Rene Auberjonois), and falls definitively in love for Darla.
"My Best Friend Is a Vampire" is a delightful teen comedy. Having a funny story with many jokes and a beautiful cast, this movie makes the viewer feels lighter and happier, being and excellent entertainment. The amazing beauty of Cheryl Pollak, and the chemistry with Robert Sean Leonard, is another attraction. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Meu Adorável Vampiro" ("My Adorable Vampire")
