Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is full of nonsensical plot twists, embarrassingly broad performances and unappealing characters."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"My Boyfriend's Back is obviously aiming for the subversive high school yuks of 1989's Heathers, but the story line never bothers to make sense."
‑ Ty Burr, Entertainment Weekly
"A sweet, and oddly touching tale of undead love."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Even viewers able to get past the disturbing setup of the film's critical plot element will find an uneven mess of under-realized ideas and overdone grotesqueries."
‑ Steve McKerrow, Baltimore Sun
"I've always had a soft spot for this one. I think it's pretty darn funny!"
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"An awful teen horror comedy."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Napkin-thin pic starts falling apart in the first reel."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"As naff and dreadful as the title suggests."
‑ Lorien Haynes, Radio Times
"Better he should've stayed away."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"My Boyfriend's Back is one of the year's worst films, an idiotic spoof of zombie movies that wants desperately to be on a par with Monty Python but doesn't have the nerve -- much less the laughs."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Simply put, absolutely none of it works. The movie utterly fails to set a foundation for its dark fantasy, effectively turning every character into a moron."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"If My Boyfriend's Back is an irredeemably silly movie, it has an engaging lightness of tone and uniformly impeccable performances by a cast that maintains just the right attitude of deadpan parody."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"My Boyfriend`s Back is the lamest of the lame so far."
‑ Candice Russell, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The movie they ought to play at all future Philip Seymour Hoffman roasts"
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
"A parody of a cliché with a lousy ending and sub-par zombie effects."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
