Max (Anton Yelchin) has one problem: He can't stand his girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) anymore. Sure, she looks gorgeous and worships the ground he walks on - but she's also a control freak, she and Max share no interests whatsoever (which she's totally oblivious of), and her insistance on boasting about her green and vegan lifestyle drives him nuts. And then, when he actually musters up enough courage to break up with her, she's run over by a bus and killed. Max's life takes a turn for the better after this, he meets lovely Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a lovely girl who shares his interest for horror paraphernalia and the like, and the two are soon in a relationship ... and then, by black magic, Evelyn returns from the dead - and not knowing Max was to dump her, she wants to pick up where they left off, much to Max's despair of course, as not only is Evelyn still the person she was alive, but now she is also slowly rotting and has superhuman strength ... and he doesn't dare to dump her anymore, and sees himself forced to hide Olivia from her - and all of a sudden, his only hope becomes his sleazy half brother Travis (Oliver Cooper) ...

 

Burying the Ex is, one can't denie it, fun to watch, and everybody will find something to laugh about this movie - but that said, it is a less than perfect film, as it embodies too many of the "qualities" that its director Joe Dante has picked up over the years: It's a bit too full of nods to classic horror cinema, it's a bit on the harmless side and lacks the subversiveness of his earlier work, and the happy ending is really too much on the cheesy side to come across as really good. The film's still laughs aplenty, mind you, just far from perfection.
