| You have to be seriously uptight not to find this hilarious.
I can't believe other reviewers called this moving "boring and idiotic". Um...hello...what were they expecting, a serious, contemplative piece of cinema? It's completely silly, as it's supposed to be. If it wasn't good, would it have inspired a (far inferior, in my opinion) television spin off? Watch it with no expectations. You'll be impressed. Kirsty Swanson does that Alicia Silverstone in "Clueless" thing perfectly. My friends and I have made it a ritual to watch this movie every couple months with a bottle of wine and a big bowl of popcorn. Nothing better on a rainy night. Don't listen to the bozos who said this isn't worth seeing. It's hilarious, trust me.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The original script by Joss Whedon was heavily re-written to make this movie "lighter". In the original script, Buffy burns down the school gym in which the dance is being held, in an effort to destroy the vampires. In Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), this fact is referred to several times, as the series is seen as a spin-off of the original, unproduced screenplay, rather than this movie.


Quotes

Amilyn: We're immortal, Buffy. We can do anything.
Buffy: Oh yeah? Clap.


Goofs

After Pike talks to Buffy while on his motorcycle, he does a turn toward the photo booth. You see a close up of him just as he his revving up his bike, and he is maybe two to three feet from the photo booth, which is not enough room to do the maneuver. In the next shot, you then see him about six or seven feet from the booth, and he does the maneuver.


Crazy Credits

TV interviews with people who were at the dance attacked by vampires.


Alternate Versions

The original theatrical release received a "12" rating in the UK without any cuts however, the video release was rated "15" with 11 seconds cut. The scene in which Lothos ignites Buffy's cross was removed and instead of immolating his head, she merely flees. At the time, the "12" rating did not cover video releases, only theatrical so it was rated "15" and the scenes in question may be imitated by younger viewers. In 2002, all previous cuts were waived and the video release was rated "15".
