Before the show, Buffy was a movie. An extremely 90s movie. Released in 1992 and set in California, it's a primer in valley girl speak. You'll hear such gems as:
*What's the sitch?
*What's your damage?
*Excuse much, rude or anything?
and my favorite:
*Get out of my facial!
Luke Perry delivers a pretty ineffectual performance, complete with terrible hair and a soul patch. Donald Sutherland does not compare to Anthony Stewart Head. Paul Reubens is a major creeper. But I enjoyed Kristy Swanson as the slayer. It's a decently fun movie overall, with a good soundtrack, too.
Why you should watch this movie: "Does the word 'duh' mean anything to you?"
Why you shouldn't watch this movie: You're Joss Whedon and still can't get over what they did to your story.
