Critic Reviews of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"
Andrea GronvallFebruary 29, 2016
The movie strives to be both scary and funny but winds up being neither.
James Berardinelli ReelViewsFebruary 06, 2016
The bottom line is that Burr Steers' adaptation is unlikely to please any audience regardless of what they're looking for.
Tim Grierson The New RepublicFebruary 05, 2016
This is a perfect film for our mash-up/viral culture in which short, clever, easily digestible bits of entertainment are passed along giddily from friend to friend. But most shareable YouTube videos run a couple minutes. "Zombies" is much, much longer.
Rafer Guzman NewsdayFebruary 05, 2016
An unexpected and off-kilter treat, thanks to a BBC-quality cast and (un)deadpan humor.
Christy Lemire RogerEbert.comFebruary 05, 2016
Maybe someone else can crack the code to the ultimate Austen mash-up when the inevitable "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters" adaption comes along.
Manohla Dargis New York TimesFebruary 05, 2016
Both pride and prejudice still play their parts, but now in service to one tediously repeated joke: the sight of a gentleman or a lady, together or alone, playing cards or ballroom dancing, fatally swarmed by devouring zombies.
Nathaniel Rogers Film ExperienceJanuary 02, 2017
Though P&P&Z is uneven and could have used more visual wit than it gets -- it's shot like a fairly standard underlit action-horror movie -- it mostly works.
Brad Keefe Columbus AliveDecember 31, 2016
The zombie crowd may be bummed by all the talking and prancing about. The Austen crowd is, well, not typically into zombies. But if you're in the sweet spot in the middle, it's oddly moving. And peppered with zombies!
Sean P. Means Salt Lake TribuneDecember 31, 2016
The problem is that the movie offers just enough to tantalize both fan groups -- the Austenites and the horror fans -- but not enough to fully satisfy either.
Lesley Coffin The Mary SueDecember 31, 2016
It almost feels like the filmmaker was yelling "this isn't your mom's Jane Austen!" without realizing there's a lot going for Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice (and zombies) that we still like.
Kevin A. Ranson MovieCrypt.comDecember 17, 2016
... looks like someone mashed up a Zombie 5K with a Renaissance faire. It shouldn't work, but by sheer force of will and a game cast of actors, it's wonderful.
Violet Lucca Brooklyn MagazineOctober 25, 2016
Serious question: does what goes in front of the camera matter anymore if the right properties are all in order?
