Hoult narrates the story and lays out its premise for us. Since becoming one of the undead he can barely speak, so this inner monologue is essential to understanding his character, who has yearnings and longings…especially once he meets Palmer. She happens to be the daughter of the President (John Malkovich), who’s trying to protect what’s left of humanity—now sequestered behind a huge city wall—and has a zero-tolerance policy toward zombies. Rob Corddry plays Hoult’s only friend among the shambling zombie population.
Warm Bodies is a love story set against the backdrop of a bleak future world…but ultimately it offers a ray of hope. It’s simple, even simplistic at times, but its off-kilter comedy and the sheer likability of its lead characters make it entertaining. It’s a bit slow at times and soft around the center, but I had fun watching it.

RT @leonardmaltin: 'The Hangover Part III' is a dreary, lamebrain comedy that ruins whatever fond memories we have left of the 1st film http://t.co/i4jcIItOXZPosted 1 hour ago
