Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "This past weekend Jonathan Levine‘s highly original zombie romance/comedy Warm Bodies hit theaters and it actually took the number one spot at the box office. This is a really big breath of fresh air that is probably the result of a smart marketing campaign that aimed the film at teenagers and those that seek out each and every new Twilight film. That’s fine and all, because at least the film is getting some exposure, but I’m here to tell you that Warm Bodies is so much more than Twilight but with zombies. I’m here to tell you that Warm Bodies should be appealing to not just females, but males too. It’s the first zombie film in a long time that actually has something to say and I want to make sure you get that message while the film’s still out on the big screen."
