Warm Bodies

Rated PG-13 98 minutes 2013

Director Jonathan Levine hit the jackpot with Will Reiser’s screenplay for 50/50 (2011), a funny and true account of a young man facing death by cancer. For this follow-up effort, Levine has adapted a “zombie romance” novel by Isaac Marion about the star-crossed love between a zombie boy and a live girl, which might seem similar in theme to 50/50 but registers on-screen as a muddled teenpic. Nicholas Hoult is the cute zombie in a red hoodie, Teresa Palmer is the girl he wins over after killing her boyfriend (a conflict never satisfactorily resolved), and John Malkovich is her father, one of those post-apocalyptic warrior types, who disapproves of his daughter going with a boy who eats brains.
