Mini-Review: WARM BODIES (2013)

It's been over a month since my last review. I really am hopeless.
I saw this movie back in February, and I don't remember much from it. Which tells you all you need to know, doesn't it? It's forgettable, but also cute and sometimes funny. The central story of a Romeo and Juliet-type romance between a zombie and a living girl is actually a neat idea, but the movie doesn't do that much with it. There's also a clever twist on the anti-Twilight theme of the guy trying to turn into a human for a girl (instead of the girl trying to leave her humanity behind for a guy), with the added bonus of Teresa Palmer looking like Kristen Stewart's blond sister. I'm not sure if that was intentional on the director's part, but I hope so.

All in all, it's entertaining and it doesn't overstay its welcome. But there's not enough meat on the bones to fill me up. Again, cute but forgettable.
