I wish I would wake up dead after seeing this movie
15 October 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Not much of a fan of Jon Heder, but I decided to give this movie a chance any way, especially because I assumed it would be something in the lines of a zombie-like comedy. But wow, was I far from the truth.

To summarize this movie quickly: it is 1 hour and 20 minutes of your life that you will never get back.

I didn't laugh at all throughout this movie, so it failed horribly as a comedy. And the dialogue in the movie was pretty bad, lots of really bad writing here. And worse yet, the dialogue seemed forced and halting.

Now, the good parts in the movie was the role of Matt (the guy with the camera) played by Josh Gad, he was the one who carried this movie. And then the role of the annoying co-worker in the adjacent booth played by Wayne Knight.

I didn't even make it all the way to the end of the movie, I gave up about three-quarters through. It was just that terrible. If you are in for an evening of comedy, this movie is not a good choice. Mark my words. Sadly enough, I have seen low budget zombies movies that made me laugh more than this, and those movies weren't even comedies.
