Review: Life After Beth

Life After Beth (2014)
Aubrey Plaza, Anna Kendrick, Cheryl Hines, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Paul Reiser, Garry Marshall, Alia Shawkat. Written and directed by Jeff Baena.

labLife After Beth is a silly, semi-stupid zombie movie, and even though I’m tired of zombies and their recent ubiquity in entertainment media, I felt it my duty to watch it 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—I’m not kidding—it really isn’t that bad, with kind of an engaging story and a really sweet 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 two scenes for a total of about five minutes of screen time.
