Teenager, Becca finds herself torn between 2 boys. As she and her friends wrestle with a number of different dramas, everything comes to a head at their prom.

“Becca, an anxious, non-vampire teen, is torn between two boys. Before she can choose, Becca must get around her controlling father, who embarrasses Becca by treating her like a child. Meanwhile, Beccau0026#39;s friends contend with their own romantic issues – all of which collide at the prom.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVAMPIRES SUCK will surprise many people because itu0026#39;s an improvement over the previous spoof films directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have been churning out for the past couple of years. However, thatu0026#39;s like saying itu0026#39;s the better crap of all crap. The jokes still arenu0026#39;t funny and the filmmakers still donu0026#39;t realize the difference between satirizing and copying. But I would be lying to myself if I said I didnu0026#39;t find some good that came out of this film because there are some improvements.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirst of all, the performances are great by the two leads. In her first film, Jenn Proske does a dead on impersonation of Kristen Stewart. However, itu0026#39;s sad to see her in this because I think sheu0026#39;s better than this. Matt Lanter also does a great impersonation of Robert Pattinson in his u0026quot;painu0026quot; look. I donu0026#39;t know what made Ken Jeong come aboard the film but heu0026#39;s basically playing the same character in THE HANGOVER. Heu0026#39;s not in the film that much, though. Also, I think itu0026#39;s pretty great that Carmen Electra isnu0026#39;t in here and Iu0026#39;m sure others will agree.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe second obvious thing that stuck out to me was that the film focused on only the first two TWILIGHT films. The filmmakers finally learned that spoofing 600 movies is a bad thing. Saying that, the film still does have the many pop culture references, some too random to comment about. Fortunately, they really did tone it down quite a bit compared to the previous films where you get one every five seconds. You probably get one every five minutes here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI also liked the fact that it looked like an actual film because if you saw MEET THE SPARTANS and DISASTER MOVIE, youu0026#39;d know the films were filled with shoddy sets made up in ten minutes. In here, you might question if they stole the sets and locations from the TWILIGHT films. I donu0026#39;t know if this counts as something good but I really think the film manages to create a decent storyline from the first two TWILIGHT films.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, the film is still bad because itu0026#39;s rarely funny, although I will admit I laughed at some bits that took a jab at the TWILIGHT series. If the story is better than the jokes itself, you know you got a bad comedy. Itu0026#39;s an improvement from the last few spoof films, but that doesnu0026#39;t say much. I really donu0026#39;t recommend seeing it at all. If you must, just rent it on DVD that will inevitably come out a month after the film is released.”
