Consensus: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies manages to wring a few fun moments out of its premise, but never delivers the thoroughly kooky mashup its title suggests.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

The movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither.

An unexpected and off-kilter treat, thanks to a BBC-quality cast and (un)deadpan humor.

Not quite a debacle, not at all a success, it ends up a thoroughly inconsequential adaptation that's unlikely to shepherd a new wave of mash-ups to the big screen.

The bottom line is that Burr Steers' adaptation is unlikely to please any audience regardless of what they're looking for.

Maybe someone else can crack the code to the ultimate Austen mash-up when the inevitable "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" adaption comes along.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies laughs at action cinema as a genre that has always left women in a weaker standing. [Full Review in Spanish]

The New Republic

This is a perfect film for our mash-up/viral culture in which short, clever, easily digestible bits of entertainment are passed along giddily from friend to friend. But most shareable YouTube videos run a couple minutes. "Zombies" is much, much longer.

Both pride and prejudice still play their parts, but now in service to one tediously repeated joke: the sight of a gentleman or a lady, together or alone, playing cards or ballroom dancing, fatally swarmed by devouring zombies.

Too often, Steers would rather flash a stockinged leg or plunging cleavage to quicken our pulses, where a few quality scares would have been infinity more rewarding.
