3.8? This movie made 3.8?
28 February 1999 | by (Aberdeen) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but this is one case where there needs to be a rating system that takes away stars. I tried to like this movie, honestly I did, but it didn't work. Newscaster dies, is brought back to life as a zombie, and wanders around for a couple of hours, during which the viewers are slowly dying themselves, of Neverendingus Boredomitis. There is not a single part of the ratings scale that this movie works on. There is no plot. There is no characterization. There is no storyline. There is no comedy. Basically, a person could get a better show watching the snow that shows up on the TV channels you don't quite get.

Never fear, though -- there are movies just as lousy as this one. One step up you've got "The Stoned Age", and one step down you have "Broken Arrow". If you want to visit the realms of the truly lousy, check out most of Jim Carrey's films. But even Carrey's infomercial, "Copper Mountain", manages to do better than this bomb.
