It's all very silly and sweet in that indie-nostalgic way that Levine ('The Wackness' and '50/50') has made his own.

Warm Bodies is simply the first must-see movie of 2013.

Warm Bodies doesn't even have the conviction to follow through on its lame ideas, let alone its good ones. It's a mostly terrible film that misses the opportunity to be a merely mediocre one.

This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness.

This is a bloody fresh twist on the zombie genre.

The pallid, flesh-eating hunk in this case is played with appropriate weirdo charm by Nicholas Hoult.
