I GUESS IT MIGHT BE TRUE. ZOMBIES ARE HUMAN TOO. THIS MOVIE ANSWERED A LOT OF QUESTIONS I HAD ABOUT ZOMBIES AND IS FUNNY WHILE DOING IT. SO BEFORE I SHOOT THE NEXT ONE I MEET IN THE HEAD I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE ALL ABOUT.

This movie caught me off guard. It wants us to buy into the possibility that all those flesh-eating zombies we've seen in other movies may have been reachable with a little love and affection. For example, bringing them back to life may be as easy as picking one to play catch with. Or, if one has problems opening an umbrella when it's raining (what?!), help them out and they may come back to life and lose interest in chasing you and eating you. First and foremost, this is a movie about young love between the daughter of the human resistance and a young zombie. She sees him during a battle and can't bring herself to shoot him in the head. He then saves her by covering her with his blood so that the other ravenous zombies won't eat her. They fall in love. It's cute and gets progressively better throughout the movie. This movie is best for really young audiences who are very forgiving of weak plots and are easily impressed by good-looking young actors who fall in love.

I loved "Warm Bodies"! I went and saw it with my hubby. The only bad thing was the young audience was talking and laughing the whole time, and yelling things out! So, I went and saw it again the next night with my 14 year old daughter. The crowd was much better. We loved the movie. Definitely a different kind of 'love story'!

Don't get me wrong on the overdone! We loved Zombieland, we are Walking "Dead Heads" and we might just run a local race where zombies chase you (now that there is motivation!). So Warm Bodies was right up our dark, dysfunctional alley.
We loved it!! Beginning was a little slow (his life at the airport) and sometimes on the plane (when he was hiding her) seemed to drag, but once the zombies attacked at the pharmacy it didn't disappoint. The eating of the brains to capture memories was unique and his airport zombie friend was hysterical!
It was a predictable ending, but a nice change.

Go only if you "must." That is, you are like me and you see pretty much everything (unless you know or sense beforehand that it's going to be really, really bad). I've seen everything and there was nothing left to see. There are so may other movies out there that are much, much better. But this wasn't so bad (or so good). There were some fun moments but it was agonizing slow paced and long. However I enjoyed the fun inversion of your typical walking dead kind of movie, which made it somewhat amusing (admittedly minimally so). Lots of pretty young people and Rob Corddry was a stand out. I love that guy!
