FIDO: ever faithful

Zombies seem to be everywhere these days, so my husband rolled his eyes when I put in the disc for FIDO, another zombie movie. But we both ended up liking this one. Zombies give me the heebie-jeebies, but I can tolerate them better with a dose of humor.

FIDO delivers on the wry humor (I almost said "tongue-in-cheek" but that takes on a different tone when you're talking zombies)--like Pleasantville meets Shaun of the Dead (another must-see that I've blogged about), which sounds like an odd mix but actually works. I was surprised when I looked back and saw that it got an R rating for "zombie related violence." I've seen gorier movies with a PG-13 rating.

Here's the trailer:

Woo hoo, I won the J.D.Robb books! Thanks, Karla!

And yes, you should be in the proper mood for this movie--like not when you're eating a big rare steak.

Yikes, (and yuck), zombies! I'm not a big zombie fan, but I can't help notice the fascination so many people have with them (including my own sons! gads!)

Christina, your sons are exactly the right age to appreciate this film--enough action to keep them interested, but some subtle humor that they probably wouldn't catch at a younger age.
