Eventually the film boils down to an adult-leveled teen surrounded by irresponsible adults, trying to find normalcy in a world of chaos. The end is abrupt and unfulfilling... You can find better versions of this story.

The first film was more of a action type feel with some hard core kicks. While the new version is layed back and tossed into a comedic motion. It holds a luagh but not the charm of the origional. If you enjoy comdies or a Sandler fan then you must see this. If your not a real big fan of either then I suggest you just stick to the origional film. [u]Undead [/u]A LGF film from Australia. This film took after its nations nick name the DOWN UNDER! it is so terrible it just bits the dust. This movie is a disgrace ro horror films and zombie flicks and any movies with any good plots. This film was so cheap it was hysterical. Its one of those films you sit there and laugh at because of the stuff you can't belief they tried to pull off in the film. Its rather hysterical. There is no scare factor so skip it on the halloween list, the gore factor is medium, you would be better off going through the Gorge A. Ramero collection. The plot isn't anything complicated and could work if they actually told it rather than just praying you understood it with the brief updates from time to time. I most definately don't recommend this film unless you just want to laugh at a shitty movie. They did have one new feature to zombie films. They had a ZOMBIE FISH! wich that scene is one in its own. PRICELESS.

Jeffrey Dahmer's crimes may have been just as shocking as Gacy's, but Dahmer was of a completely different personality, one that doesn't really equate to film. Unlike Gacy, Dahmer was really shy and introverted, avoiding interacting with people that he wasn't planning on killing. The movie version of Dahmer's was honestly as boring as a Horror film could get. Much of it shows Dahmer alone in his apartment, torturing his victims, and much of the time, there isn't even any dialog! Jeremy Renner stars and does as good of a job as someone can do with a role like this, but to be completely honest I found this film to be nothing but boring. Even the graphic scenes the film portrays in order to shock you, don't really cut it. Dahmer may have been just as deranged as Gacy, but the two men were very different. Gacy's film was interesting, Dahmer's put me to sleep. Dahmer is one movie you can most definitely avoid watching.

Mya G (nl) wrote: Classic musical fluff that is brainless but thoroughly entertaining. While there are a couple good numbers, the music (by Jule Styne) is, on the whole, unmemorable, as is the choreography. Fortunately the entire movie is lifted immeasurably by Judy Holliday's charming and hilarious turn as an infatuated telephone operator. Holliday is easily one of the most engaging performers on stage and screen, and her talent shines in this, her last film.

Carlos D (jp) wrote: ok,I kind of like this one,there's a couple of issues though: -Why aren't they saying right from the start this IS a zombie movie? it's misleading.-some moments are great but most of the movie feels like it's dragging for long periods of time.-You have Anna Kendrick and you're using her in 3 scenes? c'mon! -not sure why there's zombies in the first place.-Aubrey Plaza might seem committed,but her acting...IDK,it feels amateur-ish.
