Honestly, I can't stress enough that this movie, while not particularly good on the surface, is much smarter than it appears. The entire cast acts under the hazy impression that rising zombies aren't that out of the ordinary. Seeing a high-schooler chastise his undead friend for eating another student with the line "Colleges look at this sort of thing!" is indicative of the type of humor at work here. Take it for what it's worth. No, this isn't Oscar material, but 20 years from now, this will be a cult classic. I laughed all the way through at the concept of a zombie's (living) parents gleefully assisting in his cannabalism. But hey, that's just me.

man i really love this movie. this film is so much fun. it's hokey and cheesy. It's also FUNNY AS HELL! Don't listen to the numb-skulls that say it sucks. those people need to go see a proctologist b/c there is something stuck up their.......anyway, this movie is a lot of fun to watch. i've seen it too many times to count & i never get sick of it. i liken it to the princess bride in that way (before anyone jumps down my throat for that comment i am NOT comparing these 2 movies. they are totally different. i just want to say that i enjoy the humor in each so much that i always feel like watching both movies over & over again.) every character is funny in his/her own way & all are played well by the actors. many of whom i recognize but i don't know their names. i know the dad is the guy that played the head vampire in lost boys. otherwise i'm not sure who they are but they are funny! The doctor is absolutely hilarious, i think he might be my favorite character.

I saw this movie a couple years ago and thought it was really funny. I've tried to tell a couple people that I work with about it but they don't seem to remember it or have no clue what I am talking about.

On another note, to Movie Lover, the name of the song is "Hanging on for Dear Life" by MMC. I can promise that this is correct, because I just bought the CD and the song is on it.

Growing up I would classify myself as a "pure" slasher fan. I didn't enjoy comedy mixed with my horror as I found that more often than not it diluted the effectiveness of the scares. That's not to say that I didn't ever enjoy the comedy-horror subgenre. "Night of the Creeps" and "Return of the Living Dead" were two of my favorites from the subgenre growing up. Maybe it has something to do with zombies. I never was able to take them very seriously so they seemed to mix well into the comedy format for me. All of this brings me to one of my favorite horror-comedies from the early 90's, the sorely underrated "My Boyfriend's Back." Hilarious from beginning to end with some of the driest dark humor to come out of the 90's, the film was a box office bomb on initial release making less than $4 million on a budget of $10 million. With an all star cast (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Matthew McConaughey, Renée Zellweger, and Matthew Fox all appear in small roles) let's dig into this film that deserved to be a hit.

The film starts in a flashback as we meet the young Johnny Dingle at the age of 6, he has been in love with beautiful Missy McCloud for as long as he can possibly remember. For a 6 year old, this is a very, very long time. It is Missy's birthday and he plans to give her a heart shaped locket with the pictures of the two of them enclosed. This is the day where he finally is going to get up the courage to tell her how he feels. What do you know...he chickens out and keeps the locket safely tucked away in his bedroom closet. Someday will be the day, right?

We flash forward ten years to high school where Johnny is still in love with the still beautiful Missy but Missy has a boyfriend: the typical jerk jock boyfriend played with swarmy perfection by Matthew Fox.

I'm a huge movie buff.. ever since I was little. I remember my dad taking us to rent movies every weekend... This is a childhood favorite. Corny B comedy movies are amazing. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes black satire comedies, or zombie movies. I rated it a 5 * because it's clever, funny, and brings back awesome childhood memories of hanging out with the family :)

This movie features: Matthew Fox from Tv's Lost and Party of Five, Oscar winner for Capote Philip Seymour Hoffman, Matthew McConaughey, and I have been told if you look closely you can even spot Renée Zellweger! Not just that but it's a great movie too! If you like Shaun of the dead you will love this DVD! It may not have any special features but hey... It's my all time fave movie on DVD I am not going to complain! Great quality and perfect sound!!! Very great movie that is guarenteed to make you laugh!

This movie is a campy classic that always delivers. Full of cliches and unexpected one-liners, once you let go, you'll be sure to catch yourself laughing...out loud.
