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.

When R returns to the airport with Julie for the first time after the raid at the lab, listen carefully to the background. You will hear an automated announcement: "The white zone is for loading and unloading of passengers only."
This is taken from the movie "Airplane!" at the beginning of the movie, when Ted first arrives at the airport. See more »

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.

Funny and Sweet, like Wall-E mixed with a zombie movie
And they said you couldn't have a zombie romance story. Take that vampires!
The zombie R was surprisingly strong, but sensitive, sweet, loving, and protective. He wanted to talk to the pretty girl but had trouble finding the words, at least vocalizing them. When it comes to his thoughts it doesn't take long to realize he does have a brain and his warmth and good natured attitude was endearing. Julie was not some wussy victim or brainless babe. It made me happy to see she was tough and could take care of herself. She had a rebellious feisty streak that made her entertaining to watch and a softer affectionate side that showed itself with R.
I can honestly say I liked both characters and wanted to see them succeed.
I particularly enjoyed the scenes where R eats the brains and we saw more of Julie, her old boyfriend, her father, and how they all fit together. It was heart felt and well-done. The relationships and the complexity of them was less evident in the movie than in the book but I could still feel it. If you liked the movie I highly suggest reading the book, btw.
Warm Bodies was one of the better zombie movies I have ever seen - I was surprised. You should see it, and provided you aren't dead inside you'll probably enjoy it!
