Okay, I watched this one at my friends’ house right after we watched Ahhh! Zombies! Once again I was not taking notes while watching, so this review might be less detailed than normal.
This movie is a dark romantic comedy about a man who inherits a funeral home in a town where no one seems to be dying, falls for the cute but kinda creepy mortician, and finds some creative solutions to their business problems (read: they start killing people).
It’s very dark (as one would suspect judging by the subject matter) and yet strangely cute also (as one would not necessarily expect). Rose Byrne does a particularly good job of making her character attractive despite her whole tendency to kill people. Jay Baruchel makes his character’s evolution thought out extremely clear, which I liked.
My only minor complaint was that the last scene seemed jarring in a way that didn’t help the film over all for me. I wouldn’t change the ending narratively, just something about the way that scene unfolds.
Rating: four out of five jars of peanut butter
