I suppose the word that comes to mind when I think about this film is "offbeat". It's a zombie film that isn't really scary. It's a comedy but has a kind of hangdog feel. None of the characters is terribly attractive, let alone glamorous. But somehow I found a lot of things to like about The Odd Family. For a start, I was quite taken with the look of it, with its lush green expanses outdoors and its convincingly old-fashioned, cluttered interiors. I also thought the film was put together and paced in a very coherent way, so, even though there weren't any exciting action scenes or dramatic confrontations, I was still carried along by the story. The ensemble cast worked well together; it looked like all of them had cast vanity to the four winds and completely entered into the spirit of their very ordinary, even lumpen characters. And, lastly, I did enjoy the story and the way the family members (including the new addition, the zombie) interacted with each other. So, although its wry, lowkey charms may not be obvious to everyone, I do recommend this film for an evening's gentle entertainment,
