Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Reviews

November 5, 2015
There's this one shot, almost seven seconds long... [that] is just a huge pair of breasts, up close, in slow-mo, bouncing "hilariously" on camera. I know -- breasts are so funny like that, aren't they?

Cheerfully offensive ...

Will make you want to punch the nearest teenage boy in the face.

As horror, "Scouts Guide" is too frivolous to thrill. As comedy, it leans too much on scenes that see the teens groping big-breasted topless zombies or the beasties sexually molesting young girls.

The gags are mostly puerile and uninspired - like the film was dreamed up by a bunch of tired, wired 13-year-olds; it has their insistence but little of their invention.

After decades of well-trodden zombie tropes, a successful zombie movie has to be at least one of three things: a) original b) funny or c) actually scary. Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse doesn't earn a merit badge in any one of those categories.

This is idiocy from soup to nuts, devoid of any clever ideas, meaningful performances or memorable set pieces.

It's the best public relations boost Scouting has had since it ended its ban on gay leaders, not to mention a pretty decent zombie film.

It's all too dumb and ribald for most tastes, but if you liked all the zombie comedies that came before, well, here's another one.

The film falls prey to the zombie curse of excessive laddishness, but at least it finds room for a strong female character.

"Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" is exactly what you'd expect. But better.

If your idea of a hot joke is a strip club called "Lawrence of Alabia," step right up to "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse," a horror-comedy that takes a weak premise (do high school boys even go scouting anymore?) and barely uses it, anyway.

The result is a movie that's outrageous without being funny, and gruesome without being scary.

At the end of the film you realize it's simply just a pubescent male fantasy.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse manages to be a very good comedy, a scary adventure, a tale of friendship and a coming of age story, all rolled into one.

We ... get zombie diarrhea jokes, zombie fat jokes, zombie selfie jokes, zombie cat-lady jokes, and zombie stripper jokes. And when all of this starts to seem too crass, out come the clichd lessons ...

Well, it's got that title going for it. So there's that.
October 29, 2015
A deeply irritating horror-comedy that might have worked as a "Funny or Die" short but which is pretty much DOA as a feature-length concern.

The Scouts save the day, but not the movie, in this witless zombie-comedy retread.

Too often revels in juvenile gags involving poop and penises, but you can see shards of the film it might have been.
