Warm Bodies

Rated PG-13 97 min. 2013



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.
