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.

My Boyfriend`s Back is the lamest of the lame so far.

As it is, My Boyfriend's Back is as mindless as a movie can get. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly isn't a heartfelt endorsement.

As naff and dreadful as the title suggests.

Napkin-thin pic starts falling apart in the first reel.

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.

The movie is full of nonsensical plot twists, embarrassingly broad performances and unappealing characters.

A gross comedy about a teenage zombie's romance with the prettiest girl in school, it is cheaply made, thoroughly cliched and absolutely guaranteed to turn your stomach.
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
A parody of a cliché with a lousy ending and sub-par zombie effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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.

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.

A sweet, and oddly touching tale of undead love.
