A little gem of a movie

I bought this movie on DVD from the bargain section in a local supermarket, for the princely sum of £3. I did not expect much at that price, but given that I quite like Jim Jefferies, I was prepared to give it a shot.

What I was actually presented with was a charming and funny low budget film made by people who clearly love the genre. There are several in jokes throughout the movie and the usual robust Australian humour, all of which made the movie really rather funny in places.

However (and be prepared for a spoiler here) the demise of Jefferies is a beautifully silly and funny moment, which did make me laugh. At the end of the movie, the on going conversation between the last surviving cast of Greg Fleet and Alex Williamson is not only funny, but also clever. As Williamson stumbles over his words, it is hard to tell if it is a cleverly written joke or just a very lucky fumble. Either way, it had me laughing again.

This is not a high budget movie, it is however made with love. The cast clearly loved every moment and to be honest I rather enjoyed every silly moment. One of which came when Roy (Fleet) is explaining to Darryl (Williamson) why he does not like his daughters's boyfriend this is actually a clever joke and it does put a switch on how we the viewer think about the characters. It is true that this movie is not as sharp as Shaun of the Dead and it is not as bleak as Zombieland, but it does have a charm of it's own. Think back to what it was that we loved about the original Romero movies, those low budget gore fests that were about the love of storytelling, rather than fantastic visuals. This movie has a similar heart in it and although it won't appeal to everyone, it appealed to me and I enjoyed it. Best £3 I have spent in ages.

A disappointing Aussie zom-com.

An Aussie entry in the over-saturated zom-com genre, Me and My Mates vs. The Zombie Apocalypse sees a group of friends/work colleagues hole up in a telephone exchange where they try to figure out a plan for survival. This formulaic scenario delivers very few surprises and the extremely low-brow and un-PC humour only occasionally hits the mark.

There is a fair amount of splatter that will please gore-hounds, with a neat shotgun blast to the head and lots of gut-munching, but nothing that we haven't seen many times before in much better movies.

Funniest lines (all delivered by Greg Fleet as Roy):

Roy trying to explain how open-minded he is: "Two of my mates are homos: Lesbo Shirl and Billy 'The Ball Bag' Butcher."

Roy tells his pals his nickname, given for his knowledge of dogs and ability to pick chips: "Dog-knowing and chip-picking Roy".

Roy wants to check if someone is infected: "Your cock and balls... get 'em out now."

Did I mention that the comedy wasn't very sophisticated?

3.5/10, rounded down to 3 for having zombies despatched by paintball guns: I'm all for the use of unorthodox weapons, but c'mon...

A clean car is the only difference between them and us

Darryl (Alex Williamson) and Joel (Jim Jefferies) work at the telephone exchange during the zombie apocalypse. They are soon joined by their boss Roy (Greg Fleet) and his daughter Emma (Adele Vuko). Joel and Darryl had recently killed Roy's wife and Darryl spends the whole film attempting to break the news to Roy. They are later joined by two apprentices (Matthew Popp, Andy Trieu ) one of which is the boyfriend of Emma and not liked by her dad.

This is an Australian comedy-horror. Our heroes are nonchalant about the zombie issue and care more about trivial aspects in comparison. There is plenty of blood and guts. Most of the humor consists of one liners that work.

Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex and nudity.
