Click here for trailer.

This looks damn funny, and the word on the vine is that it does turn serious later in the film. Looks like we have another good character-based piece in which scary things happen. Man, I'm hoping that Hollywood keeps this trend up.

Went and saw this Sunday morning and damn was it funny. Utterly hilarious spoof on the way we blatantly go about our dead-end jobs and do the same thing over and over and over again with no clear reward other than to sit on the couch and play games. It's great on so many levels because it does turn very, very serious later on, but along the way there is just so much side-splitting humor it's a great ride. The long tracking shots of Shaun going to the local grocer are great, but watching the second one of these I was just dying laughing. This is a great time, people, and I'd suggest everyone try and catch this in theaters as soon as you can. Big thumbs up from me. biggrin

I'm not one for long explanations, so I'll just say that I saw it, and I enjoyed it. Recommended to all those interested.

Yup. Won tix from a shop I frequent, preview screening 2 weeks ago. Peed laughing. It's tagline says it all : a romantic comedy. With Zombies.

Watched the trailer a couple days ago and I was busting up.  I hardly make it to a theater anymore, but maybe I'll drag myself to one to see this.
