Fido, the movie, contains spoilers!

Really sweet, very funny, nostalgic zombie movie. Scottish actor Billy Connelly plays Fido, a kid's best friend, who just happens to be a flesh eating zombie. The story takes place after "The Great Zombie Wars, where people were forced to kill their own parents after the parents were turned into zombies at the moment of death, due to radio active poisoning.
In the after war climate, old people are always suspect, as they are liable to "go any time," and turn into dangerous zombies. You can arrange for funerals for you and your loved ones, wherein your head wll be removed so there is no chance of reanimation and your head will have its own casket. These funerals are, however, very expensive.
A company, Zomcon, has developed a collar which, when worn, restrains zombies from engaging in their flesh eating tendencies. Some men have taken zombie concubines and it is a status symbol to have zombie servants. There is a great scene where zombies are unloading a moving truck, lurching and limping as they move boxes. Too funny.
This movie reminded me of the movie, starring John Goodman, Matinee. Matinee is a comedy set during the Cuban missile crisis and was serious and funny at the same time.
Run out and rent Matinee and Fido together.

I loved Fido!I can't believe how much we have in common. We should have sex. I know there's the whole conservative/liberal thing, but really I don't take your political views seriously (because you're a woman).

Couldn't agree with Gary more. About your being a woman and therefor not to be taken seriously. Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha..................

See Gary supports Jose Padilla, but hates on women. He's not really a liberal at all. He's just on the opressive Muslims' side. Scratch a liberal's hide and you find a supporter of right-wing religious fanatics in the third world. As long as "brown people are doing it, it's ok with the left.
