Burying the Ex Reviews

It's a lot of fun, and Dante's heart is palpably in it.

Even masters have their off days ... and Dante's new picture, "Burying The Ex," seems to have been made over the course of quite a few of them.

Dante has always been at least as much of a comedian as a monster fan, and the film has plenty of gruesome dark humor about embalming fluid and rigor mortis.

The freedom of the director's best work is missing.

"Burying the Ex" is a genre-mashing low for Dante.

How did the guy who made "Gremlins" and "The Howling" direct this cheap-looking, sophomoric, unfunny dreck?

The cast is game to try anything, but there's just not much here for them to work with. Like most zombies, "Burying the Ex" is an idea that should have stayed dead.

Joe Dante's "Burying the Ex" is missing the key ingredient every good zombie movie needs: brains.

One gets the sense that Dante's gifts are better served by big sandbox productions like the underrated Looney Tunes: Back In Action, which allow him to pursue any and every idea.

Jonathan Hall's garish cinematography makes the whole movie look like a psychedelic mortuary. The screenplay, by Alan Trezza, is deadly, no pun intended.

The scariest thing about Burying the Ex is that there are screenwriters and producers who believe there's an audience for this sub-Entourage swill.

Despite a game trio of leads, Joe Dante's zombie rom-com disappoints with its outmoded sexism and indifferent visuals.

The film switches gears between genres with Dante's customary ease, even if none of it goes particularly deep.
