Storyline

With much of the world's population now an undead horde, R is a young and oddly introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. What happens next is the beginning of a strangely warm relationship that allows R to begin regaining his humanity. As this change spreads through the local undead population like a virus, Julie and R eventually have to face a larger issue when the very nature of their friendship is challenged. Caught between the paranoid human forces and the ferocious "Bonies", zombies who are a mutual threat, R and Julie must find a way to bridge the differences of each side to fight for a better world no one thought possible.

Trivia

Two of Dave Franco's movies, 22 Jump Street (2014) and Warm Bodies (2013), feature the same two songs on their respective soundtracks; John Waite's 'Missing You' and 'Midnight City' by M83. See more »

Goofs

Memories can't be recovered from long dead brain matter, the brain after a few minutes would begin to break down, including the neurons, making memories unrecoverable. So, a brain after it's been dead for hours would not be able to give out any memories like is shown in the movie when one is "eaten". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
R: [voice-over] What am I doing with my life? I'm so pale. I should get out more. I should eat better. My posture is terrible. I should stand up straighter. People would respect me more if I stood up straighter. What's wrong with me? I just want to connect. Why can't I connect with people? Oh, right, it's because I'm dead. I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I mean, we're all dead. This girl is dead. That guy is dead. That guy in the corner is definitely dead. Jesus these guys look awful.

I Loved This Cute Movie
7 June 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a post-apocalyptic United States of America, the survivors live in a city surrounded by walls that separate them from the living dead. Their leader Grigio (John Malkovich) sends a group of teenagers, including his daughter Julie (Teresa Palmer), her boyfriend Perry (Dave Franco) and her friend Nora (Analeigh Tipton), to the outside to collect food and supplies for the population. However, they are surprised by a group of zombies. Among them, R (Nicholas Hoult), who is a young zombie without recollections but very introspective.

R eats Perry's brain and revives his memories and sensations with Julie, and he falls in love with her. R saves Julie from the other zombies and hides her in the plane where he lives. Along the days, they develop a weird relationship and become friends. When a group of zombies led by R's friend M (Rob Corddry) finds Julie, R protects her. Soon the zombies including R change their emotions and are capable to dream. But the fearful Bonies are seeking out Julie and R to eat them.

"Warm Bodies" is a movie that combines comedy with romance, horror and action genres. The story is brainless since the very beginning; for example, a group of teenagers go to a dangerous environment without any skilled soldier to help them. But the delightful story in worthwhile; the zombie with existential crisis is adorable; Julie comparing R with the cover of Lucio Fulci's "Zombie" in Blu-Ray is cult; and in the end I loved this cute movie. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Meu Namorado é um Zumbi" ("My Boyfriend is a Zombie")
