My Boyfriend's Back (1993)



Reviews and Comments

My Boyfriend's Back is a sharp comedy with a wicked sense of humor. It's funny and demented: a weird combination for a weird audience. The premise is intriguing: what if dead people, animated as zombies, were treated as an minority ethnic group frequently discriminated against? It's a riot how the live characters of this movie treat animated dead so casually.

The film is a cross between a horror comedy and a teen flick, and it successfully parodies both genres. Not all the jokes work, and much of it is just plain stupid, but the frequent moments of inspiration compensate. Not for conventional tastes.
