    Wow, I was really surprised, but it was fucking great. Awesome, awesome movie. Better than Shaun of the Dead.

    Edit: By the way, it got really good reviews as well - three stars from Ebert and all that. 88% on rotten tomatoes..

    Here's the deal, I'm not the easiest to get along with and I'm sensing you're a bit of a bitch.

    It was pretty great. I want to say not quite on the level of Shaun of the Dead, but I haven't seen that since it was in the theater.

    Damn, I'm getting really anxious about the movie. Not sure if it's even gonna hit cinemas in Finland. Worse come to worst have to wait for the DVD release. But based on the trailer and footage I've seen from the movie, the flick looks great.

    Rule #1: Cardio

    This movie was one of the best I've seen in quite a while, and I will be buying the shit out of it when it hits DVD. I liked it better than Shaun of the Dead, but it is a completely different brand of humor.

    Wow...better than Shaun of the Dead??? That's a lofty claim.

    I have two free tickets to any AMC movie... Looks like I know what I'm doing tomorrow night.

    Couple of minor spoilers here, maybe ...



    I liked it, but not as much as Shaun of the Dead. I think I wanted to enjoy it more than I really did. Parts of it seemed strained -- Woody's Twinkie quest, for example, felt forced, and the extended cameo started to drag. The "rules" thing was clever at first, but the novelty wore off, and I expected more of a payoff than I got.

    For a zombie comedy, I didn't laugh that much, and there weren't many scares. But the cast was very likable, and that went a long way. I'd watch it again on a slow Sunday afternoon.
