Comedy, Horror, Romance

As a movie idea, Warm Bodies shouldn't work. It sounds like the worst kind of trash culture recycling: the zombie apocalypse movie crossed with the romantic comedy. Surprisingly, the movie not only works, it occasionally soars, thanks to the clever script by writer/director Jonathan Levine (50/50). Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy) plays "R," a relatively thoughtful zombie who falls for human survivor Julie (Teresa Palmer) after eating her boyfriend's brains and inheriting his memories. Lightweight and fun, Warm Bodies is much smarter and more generous than it strictly needs to be, and suggests the zombie movie thing isn't entirely played out yet.

Warm Bodies is a charming young zombie romance

As a movie premise, Warm Bodies absolutely should not work: a zombie apocalypse crossed with a romantic comedy. But surprisingly, not only does it work, it occasionally soars. »
