Randomly stumbled upon “Little Monsters” on Prime Video. Lupita Nyong’o is in it and there are zombies – of course I’m gonna watch it :D
It’s a short, to-the-point comedy/zombie movie that’s pretty average but it does have it’s cute little moments as the grown ups try to protect their kindergarteners from the flesh-eating infected as well as mental breakdown by making the zombie horde a “game”. The comedy is definitely no Shaun of the Dead and the protecting the children aspect is most definitely no La vita è bella. But, it’s entertaining enough to warrant a recommendation.
What brought the movie down for me was the over-the-top crude humour – particularly from Josh Gad. You know Josh Gad, the snowman from Frozen, the cringey LeFou from the Beauty and the Beast remake – that guy. I find him awfully annoying and his incredibly loud presence actually sucks the character and atmosphere out of scenes he’s in. It takes an acting powerhouse like Lupita Nyong’o to bring scenes back to earth. It’s like he belongs in Adam Sandler movies.
