REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., May 9, 2001
Arguably Joel Schumacher's finest film, The Lost Boys intelligently traverses the treacherous ground of teenagers and vampirism. The cast includes an Eighties hodgepodge of the ubiquitous Coreys and at least two of Julia Roberts' exes.

The private-school kids on New York's Upper East Side are definitely not all right in Joel Schumacher's sordid tale of young promise gone wrong.

Joel Schumacher and Jim Carrey combine their dubious talents to create an even more dubious movie in which a man becomes obsessed with the number 23.
