Dawn of the Dead is filled with comedy & punchlines, but I still wouldn't categorise that as a comedy. I feel the director was trying to wacky & clever, but I wouldn't go so far as to give him the credit that he was making a comedy with horror.

I think rabbit is referring to the Dawn of the Dead remake which had plenty of comedy moments, for example the shooting of the celeb lookalike zombies as a game.

Thanks, that makes sense.

I think, the original Dawn also got it's comedy-bits, but on a more subtle and subversive, cultural-critic-way.

Probably won't rush to see that but may be entertaining. I agree they should not have refered to SOTD, it's a cheap move. They should be on Santa's nuaghty list for that.

Just like any other Idea taken by the Americans, I see the cast are young & attractive. What I don't get is why do they think that to be the hero/heroines you have to be tall & attractive.

American actors ALL look the same, so they had no choice while casting...

I bought Dead and Breakfest only because it as being called the U.S. answer to SOTD, I wasnt expecting much since most of our new comedies are all the same, sex and drugs jokes wit a lot of useless swearing, Which is basically what DAB is, but with some zombies. I'll admit I did find some parts funny, but it was no SOTD.

And I'm just curious, was Cabin Fever a big deal in the U.K. because I dont remember any hype for it here in the states when it came out, not like it really diserved any

I rented Dead and Breakfast for the same reason everyone else did. America's answer to Shaun of the Dead?! I don't fucking think so. There were a couple good ideas and funny bits in there, but that's it! And there's just NO comparison. If my life goes well, I will never have to see Dead and Breakfast ever again and I'll get to see Shaun a million more times.

America's answer to Shaun of the Dead. HA!

"US answer to shaun of the dead" - what was the question?

does anyone else *hate* the fact that whenever you roll over anything on the site there's the most annoying scream rammed into your ears?

According to the producers dead and Breakfast went into production before Shaun of the Dead. Not that I really care one way or t`other.

One of the reasons why SOTD is soooo funny is because of the clumsy..uncool cackhanded british way the zombies are dealt with - isnt that the point?
An american sitting down for a mug of tea after beating a zombie to death just wouldnt work.
I think I will check Dead and Breakfast out tho as I like a good Zombie romp.
