Viago, Deacon and Vladislav are vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with the mundane - like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs and overcoming flatmate conflicts.

In Wellington, wallflower Lily is inexplicably attracted to loser Jarrod. She's out of a job; he's nursing a decade-long grudge against someone who teased him in high school. When she accompanies him to his seacoast hometown where he intends to take on his nemesis, she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members--plus the memory of his talented, dead brother. Jarrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with his dead brother's fiancée, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?Written by

Stop the press! We've got a fashion model in the house! Is that the makeup you got from us?

I saw this movie at Sundance 2007. I really enjoyed watching this show, I caught about 5 movies in 4 days and this was the best out of all of them.
This movie was entertaining, I was never bored. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite however different enough to not be a rip off. All the characters were great! They added exactly what was needed in this movie to make it fun to watch.
Favorite Quote "Some people don't have sleeping bags"
Anyway this is really worth a watch and look forward to having a copy at home to watch over and over.
