It's interesting to finally see the other side of the story. Nicholas Hoult does an awesome job of acting dead but still "kind of" alive. At first R's life is rather depressing and theres not much to look forward to each day. That is until he meets the girl. All at once, the story goes for a funny twist. With some romeo juliet and titantic going on, the morbidly funny zombies end up in a somewhat cheesy love story.
This movie reminds me of a young adult fiction I read a long time ago - Suck it up by Brian Meehl.
