Shaun is a loser, stuck in a dead-end job and held back by his slacker pal Ed. Girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) is exasperated by his lack of ambition and unceremoniously dumps him. As a result, Shaun misses out on what is apparently the end of the world. In a series of beautifully choreographed and edited scenes, including hilarious tracking shots to and from the local shop, he spectacularly fails to notice the death toll and subsequent zombie plague. Only when one appears in their back garden do Shaun and Ed take notice, hurling sundry kitchen appliances at the undead before breaking out the cricket bat. The catastrophe proves to be the catalyst for Shaun to take charge of his life, sort out his relations with his dotty mum (Penelope Wilton) and distant stepdad (Bill Nighy), and fight to win back his ex-girlfriend. Lucy Davis from The Office and Dylan Moran o! f Black Books fame head the excellent supporting cast. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Another pathetic and formulaic film from the lazy, greedy UK film industry. Come back Ealing. Don't buy it. Watch it
as repeat on TV if you need help getting to sleep.
Allegedly this is a comedy whereas in reality it is least funny "comedies" even produced. It just strikes me to be the product of very disturbed minds. Absolute dross. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Fallowhurst
