Austin Chronicle - Marc Savlov
It's more fun than a poke in the heart with a sharp stick.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Joe Williams
Reilly is very funny as the sarcastic mentor, and director Paul Weitz strikes a loopy tone in the scenes at the freak encampment.
50
Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
The finished film has been tinkered with and tweaked so thoroughly that it borders on the incomprehensible.
50
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
A profoundly unsatisfying experience - and that doesn't consider the derivative nature of the plot and a lackluster performance by the lead actor.
40
Variety - Unnamed
The Vampire's Assistant is too busy making impossible claims about just how spectacular its sequels will be to serve up a self-contained story with a satisfying finale.
