I felt it my duty because c’mon it has Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick in it, and Cheryl Hines too, and any one of those sweet actresses is reason enough to see anything, and it really isn’t that bad, with kind of an engaging story and a nice emotional payoff despite its grim and sorta gruesome plot, so as long as you’re not expecting anything great, you might find this enjoyable, especially if you love Anna Kendrick the way I do, because she’s the highlight even though she’s only in

A dark movie with a sometimes painful pace. Good production quality & music. The plot is ridiculous but provides a creepy zombie backdrop. Aubry Plaza's usual dark persona is taken to new depths. Nothing much to laugh about, or to be afraid of & the romance was pretty strained. Basically it's forgettable, except perhaps when she gets run over & their hike at the end.

Great teen Romantic Comedy by way of teen Horror Comedy. Very subtle, quirky, absurd movie with a terrific cast that nail their performances. Despite having a lower budget, you really get a sense that it wasn't a hindrance to exploring any of the plot elements unlike other indie movies. The beginning is a little inconsistent but by the end everything coalesces into a rather sweet film, which is kind of a surprise given the events that just transpired, but that's also the charm of the film.

Well-filmed, good subtle humor, and actually has a message worth paying attention to unlike most run of the mill zombie movies. Highly suggest going in blind as I did, because in watching the trailer afterwards, it literally spoils several key scenes including the freakin' ending.

A refreshing take on the zombie-trope with a coming-off-age-y feeling to it too. Letting go of lost love is hard enough on its own, but what to do when your (former?) SO suddenly comes back as a zombie? Also I kinda wanna marry Dane DeHaan and Aubrey Plaza. Both.

Wouldn't expect anything less freaky from a flick starring Aubrey Plaza. She looks like someone who wouldn't shy away from eating people. Starts out promising enough, I had a few chuckles, but goes to shit when more and more zombies start popping up. Gubler has a fun small role here.

The idea and premise of this film is interesting but unfortunately the script lets the movie down. The actors try hard but overall the material is not that good. There are a lot of funny people in the cast who have done better films elsewhere.

Feels more like a high profile cast TV show on HBO than a movie but it was surprisingly decent despite it's low reviews. Amusing execution of a concept that only dragged on in a few points but was worth it for the good parts.

Messy and random -- and initially a little dull -- but about midway through it takes a dark turn and opens up significantly, transforming from a weirdly insular rom-com into an apocalyptic shitshow with several memorable (and highly amusing) moments.

With the success of films like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland this film is the next in line to try the Zom-Com-Rom genre.Very difficult to execute and unfortunately this film is very forgettable.The cast is really good and the characters relationship are really believable and well performed but I failed to find any laughs.It feels like the script gives up on the comedy aspect in the end and concentrates on the drama.It all becomes a bit of a mess but I think there is a better story to be told.

I got what it was trying to go for about letting go and moving on, but god, this movie sucked. The humor was painful after just a little while and DeHaan and Plaza had basically zero chemistry, which is only compounded by just how annoying Zach was as a character, and that it never really felt like he actually grew. He sure did shoot his (ex-)girlfriend in the head, though. That wasn't some uncomfortable imagery, no siree.

A "light" comedy/romance movie, is usually dependent on laughs, characters, or story. There were a couple of decent laughs, but most of the jokes were predictable. Also, the main character wasn't likeable, and the story was nothing special. So, there's not much reason to watch this one.

Zombie Aubrey Plaza. That's the film's selling point, and it knows it, and makes good use of it. Essentially a retread of Return Of The Living Dead Part III, but there are worse movies to be influenced by.

Cringe cringe cringe. Most of the acting here is awful. The indie music is annoying as ever, but at least they made a self-referential joke on it. This movie is just generally unenjoyable. The story is boring. Nothing ever really builds. The main actor whines in 65% of his scenes. Aubrey is Aubrey. A few laughs, but not worth the ride.

Baena's directorial debut is a sweet and funny rom-zom-com with a cast of familiar faces I was happy to see, soundtrack full of familiar songs I was happy to hear, and good sense of humor that put a smile on my face. The plot takes a wrong turn towards the end of the film when the main theme - letting go of a lost love - gets muddled with full-scale zombie apocalypse, that doesn't go anywhere, and serves only as a display of make-up artists work.

Off the top of my head, this is probably the best horror-comedy since Shaun of the Dead. All-round fantastic cast, humor that rarely misses the mark (had tears in my eyes during the grandfather scene) and heartfelt when it needs to be.

There are some good ideas at play in Life After Beth, but it's a shame that the film surrounding them just isn't that good. The film's central analogy works well when you think about it, but let's face it: most people won't. The characters are poor, the plot is something we've seen before, and it's not particularly funny -- which matters for a comedy. Aubrey Plaza does a good job trying to hold our attention, but her performance isn't enough to make Life After Beth worth seeing.

It's refreshing to see a zombie film that's not the same blah blah blah, and actually deals with the emotional/physical torment of loss. Hmm, what else? Um, oh right, "Life after Beth" is a play on the phrase "life after death". You're welcome!

Aubrey Plaza plays the same person in every film. No acting range at all. With that being said, this an enjoyable dark comedy. They pretty much took a shitty 1993 film "My Boyfriend's Back" and improved it in almost every way. Good score as well, by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Unlike Beth, this is gonna age really well. Funny, charming, smart, and unexpectedly moving--the sweetest, most heartfelt zombie movie ever, maybe? And...the most emotionally believable? Beth and the other zombies aren't staggering and malevolent and brain-hungry as much as they are confused and mad and sorta desperate. This really isn't about zombies, though, as much as it is about breaking up. And it's a very good breakup movie.

A surprisingly sweet zombie flick about moving on from those you've lost and learning to be able to say goodbye, whether it be from death or break up.
