Remembering Helen Mirren and Billy Crystal in ‘Grampires’

by Timothy Rawles

Yes you read that headline right, Grampires, and if you made it this far you probably think this is clickbait. Arguably you might be right since this video is actually from 2011 and the movie in the title is actually a four-minute spoof honoring the original rom-com When Harry Met Sally nine years ago.

But the folks over at Funny or Die reposted this classic and so we thought we should too since this year marks the 30 year anniversary of the Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal hit. Plus who couldn’t use a laugh right now?

Grampires: When Sharon Bit Harry aka When Harry Met Sally 2, follows original director Carl Reiner and Crystal pitching a new idea to Hollywood exec Adam Scott who always has one more “tweak.”

In this case the tweak is that Harry, having lost Sally, is now living in a nursing home where he falls in love with Sharon, played by Mirren, who happens to be a vampire. Hilarity ensues after she bites him and they go on a bloody rampage against anyone who provokes them.

There is kind of a twist at the end as Scott, after having screened the pilot, suggests “one little tweak.”

The funny short stars,  Billy Crystal, Helen Mirren and features Rob Reiner, Adam Scott, Mike Tyson, Rob Riggle, Maya Rudolph, Jennifer Crystal Foley, Mike O’Malley & Josh Fadem.
