first of all, this is not a good movie. however, it has some of the best lines i've ever heard. and the whole "dead guy as a satire on societal discrimination" was great and probably not easy to do. if you appreciate the stupid/funny/strange, then this is a good choice. plus, it has austin pendleton, who just rocks.
'My' favorite movie! (by jellyneckr)
I saw this movie a while ago on cable and since then I've rented it a couple of times because it is the funniest movie of the 1990's. It is just a really funny movie. It's not your average teen comedy and that's what I like about it. It's kind of gross, but it could've been a lot worse. If you're a teenager and you don't mind seeing a little gore, you will probably enjoy this movie!!!
I loved it (by thumbelinapeach)
Yes the story is a romantic comedy. I'm hopeless, what can I say? But I loved the movie. I don't remember Rene Z in the movie though. The whole Zombie back to go to the dance with the girl of his dreams kind of dumb but the romantic aspect is beautiful. I didn't like the popular kid's side kick, he was ugly and dumb. Then there is the repeated theme of the family that seems to be the target of food for Zombie Johny. But overall this is one of those, "I'm alone on a Friday night and snuggled in my bed for a movie", movie. The song "Holding on for Dear <more>
Life" is really beautiful. I think that is what really got me at the end. Again, if you're a hopeless romantic, and are in the mood to stay indoors and snuggle with a movie, get this. You won't be disappointed.
My girlfriend and I had a movie night recently in which we watched the critically and audience acclaimed Black Swan, Jackass 3 and this. I bought it mostly because I heard it had some A listers in early rolls and I enjoy trying to point out future stars before my girlfriend can recognize them.I'm sure I would be mercilessly attacked for saying this on a Black Swan board -or even a Jackass board for that matter- but we both chose My Boyfriend's Back as easily our favourite of the three. Sure it was stupid, but after the dark, serious feel of Black Swan, it's silly, goofy tone was <more>
all the more appealing. Andrew Lowery is quite likable in the lead, and Traci Lind is lovely in a roll that was likely quite difficult to play. Her character was required to show some very serious emotions in a very unserious movie, and she seemed to walk the line between them admirably.The supporting cast was a joy, without fail they understood the script's oddball, offbeat humour and really ran with it. The scene stealing Mary Beth Hurt was a stand out as Lowery's too understanding mother, and Cloris Leachman was excellent in a small, rather thankless cameo. Celebrity watchers will find plenty to keep them busy here as well. A young Matthew Fox future star of Lost makes his film debut; Oscar winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays his loathsome sidekick;as well as Edward Herrmann and Austin Pendelton from HBO's Oz, not to mention countless other films and TV shows ; character actor Paul Dooley; JFK's Jay O' Sanders; and even Matthew McConaughey makes his film debut as Guy in Movie Theatre. Perhaps this means I don't have any future as a film critic, but I was really surprised that both of us enjoyed a low budget flick with a rating under 5 and less than two thousand votes hands down over a 13 million dollar movie with 100,000+ votes and a rating over 8. I guess my point in all this is that you really can't judge a movie based on the general consensus about it. Had I dismissed this movie because of it's low approval among both critics and IMDb user's as I normally would have , we really would have missed out on a sweet, irreverent little hidden gem. When selecting a movie, don't just check the star rating or critic approval percentage, but scan the fan reviews as well and see if any really speak to you. You just might end up turning a rather uninspired date night into an unexpected last minute success.
i highly recommend this movie. one of the funniest movies you've never heard of. excellent writing & performances. brilliant satire of the 'forbidden love' inter-racial dating, poor boy dating rich girl, etc. genre! only in this movie, instead of the protagonist being a different race or social class, he's dead!
A Bomb of a Great Movie!!!! (by realitytvfreak2)
I am a person that doesn't look at how good a Movie does at the Box Office before I see a Movie. And, I must say that if your looking for a Movie to watch on a Rainy day, this would be it. The Movie tells the story of a Teenager who will do anything to get the Girl of his dreams, even if it IS coming back from the Dead. You would imagine that this would be an Adventure, well; it is. I originally saw this Movie when I was 13 at my Great Uncle's house. Since then it has been one of my Favorite Movies. I gave this Movie 9 out of 10 because it is a Movie that is both funny and <more>
entertaining; even though it was a Box Office Bomb.
You want to see a zombie movie, but your girlfriend wants to watch a romantic comedy. What do you do??? Compromise!!! This movie bombed at the boxoffice, if I recall, and didn't do too well on video either. As such, its hard to find out there I had to visit 15 video stores personally , literally making this a hidden gem! While the narrative is a little off, the one liners alone make this Romantic Black Comedy about a zombie truly entertaining! And while most of the actors in it have fallen off the face of the earth except Edward Herrmann and a very young Phillip Seymour Hoffman , they <more>
help make this film what it is. Definitely worth hunting out if you want something a little different than your average run of the mill comedy.
I give it an 8 out of 10 because even though the plot sucked, the lines were cheesy and the actors couldn't act, it was still a hilarious movie.I guess something about how the people in it believe so readily that he's back from the dead amuses me. I couldn't stop laughing the whole way through. I'm surprised the actors could take the movie so seriously.There are a couple gory parts, but the effects are so fake, that it shouldn't bother you.**definatly at must-see, especially if you're in the mood for some laughs!
Take it a Delirium Tremens of the dead (by Dr_Coulardeau)
That one is a banquet of bad taste but of good flesh. It eats at everything and bites at the rest. Cops are not swift in their authority and uniforms. The jocks are not very intelligent since they only have muscle in their skull. The bullies just get what they deserve, an axe in the head. I don't see how they don't get an Indian in the head of some of the local bigots.But don't think parents are going to be better. They are just infatuated with their dear genial children, sons or daughters, who are the acme of chicken-guano and bull-pie, and these children actually are just that, <more>
guano and cow-pie. With whip cream on top and a cherry to crown it off. A la mode and with style.And the doctor is of course a mad scientist who only thinks of one thing: to make money from the dead flesh of the zombie. Money money money. Yum yum yummy. Cosmetic surgery without the surgery. Doesn't it sound fine and attractive? The dead have to collaborate and bring some added value to the living after all. The State could even have a Value Added Tax on the dead. Perfect indeed.School teachers and other school personnel are just what they are a school of cold fish that stink high heavens like rotting salmon in a polluted river. And I will not say what happens to the trout in the lake. Dead fish can also be zombies. But then they do not have fish bones in their bodies, rather perambulating decaying radiations, like in nuclear radiations. Don't touch. It burns.So the poor Dingle who is a dongle in life and a zombie in death will be revived by some miracle worked out by Saint Peter himself after his severe mistake and a fit of anger which should be directed onto himself but is mis-directed onto the poor Johnny. It is not easy to dangle between life and death, between the morgue and the grave, between the insanity of the saints and the sanity of Satan.The film is funny, though of course not as funny as Michael Jackson's rewriting of the Night of the Living Dead. It is true here we have the Prom of the Living Dead mixing with the dead living. That sounds more romantic than terrifying. But it is horrifyingly gross at times and Shakespearian at other times; They even have the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet revisited for young zombies with decaying muscles. I just wonder where the three weird sisters are? Ah! Ah! Ah! Three times of course.Dr Jacques COULARDEAU
