Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Movie Review

A boy scout who looks like Derek from Scream 2 teams up with a scout who looks like Chunk from The Goonies and one who looks like Mark from Empire Records, and, with the assistance of a "cocktail waitress" from a strip club who looks like Frankie from Tuff Turf, battle the walking dead in their small town. Okay, so we've all seen enough of these zombie comedies to know what to expect here, and unfortunately, this film never really reaches past what is expected. There will be blood, boobs, juvenile humor, tons of profanity, and the occasional nod to the horror genre thrown in.

And zombie cats, of course

Fortunately, some of the comedy is actually funny, and the more subtle things (the zombie wearing the yolo shirt, the flickering "live" light at the strip club, the roller derby zombie) work as well. Practically everything about this movie screams "run of the mill", except the teens here are actually somewhat likable, a true rarity in film these days. One of the newest entries in the watered down zomedy genre, Scouts Guide hit theatres and kind of bombed--this may be a sign that it's time to retire this subgenre, go back to the drawing board, and try something different. Still, if the zombie comedy is your thing, you could do worse than this movie.
