    ‘Warm Bodies’ (PG-13)

    Look, it’s a zombie movie … just in time for … Valentine’s Day?

    True love always has a lot to overcome, but one of the lovers being a zombie is a new one. And believe it or not, the movie works. The girls will swoon for even-zombified Nicholas Hoult – leaving the rest of us feeling old with the realization that his introduction to us in “About a Boy” happened 11 years ago.

    Hoult provides a strong performance – grunting and shambling around on screen while providing deadpan humor and cautious optimism through voice over. Also look for strong performances by Rob Corddry and Teresa Palmer – and of course, the prospect of his daughter dating a zombie is exactly the situation the scene-chewing brilliance of John Malkovich calls for.

    On the whole, “Warm Bodies” isn’t quite as clever as it thinks itself to be, but it’s still a fun little movie. It also provides a wealth of quotable lines that your friends will be repeating ad nauseum

    As zombie comedies go, it’s a bit below “Shawn of the Dead,” but considerably higher than “My Boyfriend’s Back.”

    Those who enjoy black comedy (and zombie romance) will have a pretty good time. It’s also a nice compromise movie for couple wanting a love story/action/comedy/thriller for their next date night.

    Opening; “Identity Thief” and “Side Effects”

    - John Geddie is just glad no one sparkled.
