Plot: A young man’s recently deceased girlfriend mysteriously returns from the dead, but he slowly realizes she is not the way he remembered her
I was actually rather keen to watch this movie – I haven’t seen too much of Parks and Recreation, but I really do find Aubrey Plaza funny in it, and knowing Zoë’s admiration of Dane DeHaan and Matthew Gray-Grubler, well, it had to be seen right?!
It was fun. It is not the best movie out there but it is amusing. Aubrey Plaza plays herself – pretty, sarcastic and cranky. Dane DeHaan does really well in portraying his grief on his girlfriend’s death and the complicated feelings he has about the fact that their relationship was going downhill before her death. I found Matthew Gray-Grubler way underused – his character was legitimately funny and he did a really good job (also – he’s WAY cute!). I also thought that Anna Kendrick had absolutely no story arc and that she was just a prop used. The story could have been a bit more in-depth and the whole Zombie thing should have been better explained.
However, I found this slightly offbeat story very amusing and thought it was a great movie for starts still working hard to make a proper name in Hollywood. I really do like the entire cast and the movie was well executed. The movie is fun to watch and doesn’t drag, and entertained me quite a bit!
Audrey Plaza does bored sarcasm better than anyone. Not often you see a pun in a film title.
I love her! And yes, so punny! 😀
Zombies! Count me in. 🙂
It’s a fun movie!
Sweetest Giuseppe Kidney,
Sounds OK – I’ve never pulled the trigger on it though…. How’s the new place holding up??
Sugar Pappy Giuseppe!

It’s fun! Has some holes in but not a bad movie!
It’s going okay. Missing my old room though 😦
Nice review, Natasha. I didn’t love this but it was okay as far as zombie comedies go. Just not my favorite. It’s no Warm Bodies. 🙂
Saw this at a festival a couple of years ago and really liked it. Was surprised at how good DeHaan is at comedy
I think he did a very decent job!
YAY! I think you and I see very much eye to eye on this one. Great job!
Dane DeHaan ❤ I wish I could articulate how much I adore the guy! And isn't Gubler and absolute cutie??? You need to get on Criminal Minds. Then, like me, you will be in love. Trust me. #Matthew
