review by
Mike Haberfelner

Due to infected soy milk, the zombie apocalypse has slowly gone into full swing - not that heartbroken writer James (Mike Castle) would have noticed, he's too busy alternately staring at his computer screen trying to overcome his writer's block and lying on his bed moping over his ex Emily (Taylor Blackwell), who has left him half a year ago. Enter James's best friend Bruce (Oliver Cooper), who swings by to save him - or rather to fetch a ride out of town as he doesn't own a car himself. But of course, the gas has long been siphoned out of James's car, so they're stuck in his condo, with Waterworld on laser disc (the film's set in the 1990s) and an order for 100 chicken wings about to be delivered - after all, why wouldn't there be food delivery during a zombie apocalypse. Things get complicated when ex Emily shows up too, and confesses to James she has once had a fling with Bruce, and the chicken wings delivery guy (Danny Mondello) turns out to be infected. And that's only the start of all the troubles for our heroes ...

Pam Grier makes a guest appearance as James's neighbour, waiting for the cable guy despite the zombie apocalypse.


Ok, it's fair to say that As We Know It is more than a little reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead - but that doesn't mean it cannot stand on its own legs all the same. And basically, more than a zombie comedy this is a character comedy, as the undead decidedly take a backseat in this one as the film concentrates much more on the interplay of its three protagonists, giving each their own arc in the process - and thanks to clever writing and poignant dialogue this approach works very well. Add to this a subtle directorial effort that mostly stays away from spectacle to give the very relatable cast the necessary air to breath, and you're in for a pretty cool comedy - with some zombies thrown in.
