Fido tries very hard to keep the tone light, but it doesn't succeed in meshing hilarity and horror: the more disturbing ideas it's messing about with poke through.
June 16, 2007
The concept is great and the movie has its moments. Just not enough of them.

Fido is a one-joke movie with some good performances and a few good gross-out moments. But it's not dark enough or sick enough to be a cult favorite.
June 10, 2007
Fido never goes anywhere interesting or particularly funny with its sketch-comedy premise.

June 2, 2007
A satirical spoof of the 1950s, in a bold but limited attempt to take a second, more irreverent look at what truly was going on back then.

The movie happily rolls out retro trappings that promise some salient social commentary, perhaps about illegal immigrants, that never comes to fruition.

February 6, 2007
This attempt at parodying the zombie genre via 50s pop culture never really finds its feet. Or teeth.

Director Andrew Currie is better at laughs than scares, but he can't sustain either as Fido runs out of steam in the final stretch.

The main joke here is that Connolly's Fido, though he never speaks, seems more alive than the rigidly conformist '50s males around him. It's not quite enough to keep Fido more than a slight comedy.

Boasts a premise that might make for an amusing Far Side panel -- '50s suburbia with zombie servants -- and... doesn't do much else with it, actually.
June 14, 2007
There's nothing here that couldn't have been done better in an eight-minute sketch on "Saturday Night Live."
October 23, 2007
This indie exercise is so stultifying you might want to check your own pulse.

The problem with this movie is that Billy Connolly never gets to open his mouth wide.

You think they're dead, these zombie-film parodies, but, one after another, they keep lumbering back.
June 14, 2007
Stretches its one-joke premise and artificial look beyond the breaking point.

June 15, 2007
The film retreats to political allegory -- evocations of the Bush administration's so-called fear-mongering on terrorism -- and obvious pot shots at family values. More than anything, Fido is a missed opportunity.

June 16, 2007
This Technicolor goof on parallel-universe nostalgia has a serious timing problem. It plays like a '50s sitcom, and not the good, I Love Lucy kind.

It's a one-gag movie that starts off clever and cute, but wears thin after half an hour, and ultimately is like an excruciating Enzyte commercial for an hour and a half.
