The Hangover Part III

Inside Llewyn Davis
...the second half of the film is just a standard horror movie showdown with a few mildly amusing gags.
Shaun of the Dead's splattering of scatological jokes and goofy gruesomeness never fully congeals.
| Original Score: 3/5
Shaun of the Dead is either a zombie flick masking as a comedy, or a comedy masking as a zombie flick, or Beautiful Girls masking as a zombie comedy.
| Original Score: C+
The amusing but inconsistent Shaun of the Dead is a marriage made in hell.
| Original Score: 2/4
[T]the inevitable switch to romance taints the irony that came before like backwash.
Silly drop-dead sight gags that don't seem to work as well as intended but, nevertheless, offer some humor.
| Original Score: C
Pedestrian direction and script sap what anarchic fun this movie could've been
If ever a movie screamed "wait for the video" this is it!
| Original Score: 4/10
The main problem is that Shaun feels like a high-budget, season-ending, extended-length TV episode. Once the situation itself is milked for laughs, the film falls flat.
The movie has been running on shtick for so long that the attempt at drama rings hollow.
Shaun of the Dead isn't as funny as it's purporting to be.
Desperate, dull and enough to have Romero's zombies spinning in their graves. Well, more than usual, anyway.
| Original Score: 1/5
Ineffective as satire, comedy, and horror.
| Original Score: C-
A well executed one-joke movie. But, even it's a good joke, it's only one joke.
While there are laughs and inspired moments, the comedic aspect almost disappears at the height of the movie, in favour of the goriest events I can remember in recent cinema.
| Original Score: 71/100
It may want to be, as the British might say, a bloody riot, but in fact it seems to suffer from a case of comedic anemia.
Some funny moments, but for adults only.
Co-written by director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg, this gory zombie satire is filled to the brim with charming English wit.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Ridiculous and heartfelt, it's both the funniest zombie movie and the scariest romantic comedy you're likely to ever see.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
It's more enjoyable than most zombie movies or romantic comedies are in their own rights.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
