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 zombie-movie genre already has some wink-wink funny entries, but this U.K. smash hit, written by Pegg and Wright, takes the prize. It's a bloody hoot.

It's more enjoyable than most zombie movies or romantic comedies are in their own rights.

It works best when it treats [the zombies] more as an impediment to be overcome by the sheer Britishness of the characters.

It's a comedy. It's a horror film. It's a head-crackin' good time.

Watching this slacker store clerk turn into a master zombie hunter to win the woman he loves is a refreshing way to approach the genre.

[T]the inevitable switch to romance taints the irony that came before like backwash.

... The best comedy and the best horror movie of the first nine months of 2004.

Proves that uplifting romance doesn't have to take a back-seat to gory disembowelments but rather they can happily co-exist.

For those who don't mind a little laughter with their zombies (or perhaps it should be the other way around), this is an unusual source of entertainment.

The success has much to do with director Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the film with comic Pegg, but Pegg is who brings the film to life -- along with Nick Frost as Ed, the dimmest best friend a guy can have.
