It's not gruesome enough to please genre fans, but not nearly funny enough to be a comedy either. It tries to be a mixture of both and fails.

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 a funnier and pleasantly cheaper-grade movie than Twilight that aims to draw in both Bella & Edward lovers and haters.

Warm Bodies even suggests that true love can help the right zombie grow a new heart. That's a con job that makes Bodies lukewarm at best.

Though R's mind is nimble in (very witty) voiceover, out loud he can only express himself in a series of groans and grumbles--as touching a metaphor for love-struck adolescence as we may see at the movies this year.

There are so many clever lines and bits of physical comedy worth revisiting that the movie seems like a likely cult classic, but it's more inclusive than that.

In a genre that's grown so exhausted - what are we, up to "Night of the Resident Evil Dead Part 23" by now? - "Warm Bodies" not only brings in some fresh blood, but has brains to spare.

We're left with a setup that guarantees only 15 minutes of wholehearted enjoyment, followed by 80 minutes of intermittent mild amusement.

In doing a little genre bending of romantic schmaltz and horror cheese - some fundamental zombie mythology is turned on its head - the film breathes amusing new life into both.

I don't know if the first zombie date flick is a step forward or backward for civilization as a whole, but I can say that "Warm Bodies" pulls off a pretty impressive trick: It has its "Twilight" and goofs on it too.

Hoult and Palmer carry "Warm Bodies" with a delightful conviction their characters' forbidden, "Romeo and Juliet"-like bond can be played like other movie romances, albeit with an obvious twist.

This character-driven genre meld could have used more edge and energy, and less obvious message-mongering, but it scores in terms of atmosphere, humor and charm.
