Did You Know?


The pregnancy subplot involving Carrie-Anne Moss' character Helen Robinson was only added because Moss was really pregnant during filming, and they added the pregnancy scenes to keep the continuity through the movie as she grew larger.


Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
When Timmy's mother shoots the bully zombie behind the bushes, she fires her gun 9 times, which is not possible since a revolver like that only can fire 5 or 6 bullets before needing to be reloaded. However, the amount of shots fired seems to be intentionally overdone as a joke.


Helen Robinson:

Why aren't you eating me?

User Review


Rating: 9/10

At a risk of sounding slightly sacrilegious, on first viewing I'm kind
of inclined to put this right up on a par with 'Shaun of the Dead'.
Now, given I view Simon Pegg as an unquestionable comedy genius, I
realise this is a rather big claim. And to what extent you agree with
that last statement may be a good preliminary gauge of whether 'Fido'
will appeal to you.

In a way the comedy picks up where 'Shaun' left off, except we're back
in the original 1950s Living Dead-era stereotypical middle-American
small town. The Zombie Wars are over and zombies themselves are
becoming more well-adjusted, useful members of the community. This, so
we're informed at the outset, is largely thanks to the scientific
advances made by the good people at Zomcom – a nice play on romantic
comedy perhaps?

The beauty of the film lies in its dead-pan depiction of a respectable
neighbourhood maintaining core values while making a place for zombies
and the special hazards they pose. The charm and balance with which it
does this is near enough perfect. Themes you might expect from a more
mainstream kitsch comedy come through – the veneer of good clean
living, keeping up appearances, repressed emotion, muddled parental
values, social decorum and the plight of the alienated individual.

It's a story told with happy heart and wide appeal that is brought to
life vividly by the film's all-round strong cast. It's one of those
works where it really shows through that everyone involved got a kick
out of taking part. It's also fun imagining what Billy Connelly
learning his script must have been like…

So in conclusion, it is probable you will appreciate the humour of this
film unless your father tried to eat you.
