The lower-third text from the news report is a series of inside jokes for the cast and crew. "Taco Mike" refers to an actor who didn't get the role of Dan, and Pennsburg is a location where the gun shed scenes were shot, where it rained during 5 shoot days; crew vehicles got stuck in mud from the downpours.

Unsympathetic slacker Zach (an extremely grating performance by Alex Hammel-Shaver) breaks up with his latest girlfriend. His rowdy buddy Dan (an equally obnoxious portrayal by Scott Keebler) takes advantage of the situation by rigging a dating game show Zach is going to appear on by making all the contestants Zach's former girlfriends. Complications ensue when the show's sponsor HAPIwater creates a new popular drink that turns everyone who consumes it into ravenous zombies.
While the clever central premise has potential, alas director/co-writer George Smith squanders said potential by making the main characters of Zach and Dan a couple of exceptionally unlikable and insufferable jerks whose rat-a-tat-tat comic bantering proves to be much more irritating than amusing. Moreover, Smith tries way too hard to make the plot be as zany as possible; the humor frequently feels forced and hence simply isn't that funny. Worse yet, a disagreeable misogynistic streak pervades throughout and leaves a foul aftertaste. On the plus side, the adorable Madison Hart provides a much needed (and appreciated) dash of charm and spark as meek nerdette Lilly, Roberto Lombardi contributes a hilarious bit as a smarmy TV show host, and there's a satisfying smattering of splatter. But overall this one sizes up as a lackluster wash-out.
