Newt's movie review

This movie was so 80s I could hardly stand to watch it. Big hair, bad preppie outfits, slo-mo romance scene, motorcycles, boys in overcoats, RUN DMC, argh. And throughout I was saying stuff like, "Hey! Wasn't she in Square Pegs?", and, "Star: what an 80s name!", and "Didn't she do that Seinfeld episode 'spare a square'?". Yeh, it was bad.

My favourite part was the Frog brothers: Edgar and Alan. Cute humour there for two comic book store kids with an interest in vampires. I didn't like them, I just liked the names.

Oh yeh, the movie. Anyway, the lines were bad, it was predictable, the tunes weren't great, the acting, with the exception of Kiefer, was awful. It was a chore to watch.
