...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.

The movie bogs down and the humor seems to dry up, though the blood continues to well, spurt and spew.

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.

The amusing but inconsistent Shaun of the Dead is a marriage made in hell.

[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.

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!

Las Vegas CityLife

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.

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.

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.

For everyone who likes good acting and great writing, it's a bloody fun time and a wonderful display of how parody should be done.

Smart, likeable and consistently funny, Shaun Of The Dead is one of the most popular British comedies of the last few decades, and deservedly so.
