After being more well-known as Smithy and Gavin in the award-winning comedy-drama series Gavin and Stacey, James Corden and Mathew Horne decide to hit the big screen with Lesbian Vampire Killers but should you judge the movie because of its title? Jimmy (played by Mathew Horne) is dumped yet again by his girlfriend Judy and misses her. His best mate Fletch (James Corden) is also having a bad day as he was fired from his job as a clown after hitting an annoying child. So the two mates decide to get away from it all by camping somewhere even though they’re broke. They decide where to camp wherever the dart lands on the map and the dart lands on- tada!- Cragwich, a cursed village.
Many men who watch this might find the title a little misleading as it isn’t entirely about Lesbian Vampires and you won’t see much girl-on-girl action but it’s still not a bad comedy. It’s promising in the first twenty to thirty minutes and then it gets boring sometimes. It kind of tries to be Shaun of the Dead in so many ways but fails as Shaun of the Dead is definitely better. The acting is very average and not so believable sometimes, the Lesbian Vampires are quite hot though so that would have the male vote. Corden and Horne are great together but don’t expect brilliant acting quality from them as they’re kind of the same as they are in Gavin and Stacey and funnily enough, their characters in this movie are like Gavin and Stacey.
The story is kind of weak and isn’t that strong at all, there are so many plot holes it’s untrue but hey, what do you expect from this kind of movie? I bet that every teenage boy wished they had took part of making this movie in any way. Corden and Horne aren’t exactly the best comedy duo but they’re good enough in this movie. Beats Ant and Dec’s Alien Autopsy but they’re not exactly Pegg and Frost material just yet.
