Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Burying the Ex is a zombie-themed romantic comedy (aka "romzomcom") from director Joe Dante (Gremlins). The zombie violence doesn't start right away, but it eventually includes scenes of a bloody car accident, brain-eating, fighting, and bloody faces. Language isn't constant but does include several uses of "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and more. One character is a womanizer who sleeps with two women at once and is always talking about sex. The main character kisses and sleeps with his girlfriend and then switches to a new girl, whom he kisses and sleeps with. A naked butt is shown. In one scene, a character gets comically drunk on absinthe, and "meth heads" are mentioned.

Sexual Content

A male character awakens, naked, next to two sleeping women. Naked male butt seen. A couple kisses and has sex more than once. Provocative outfits ("slutty schoolgirl," "naughty nurse," etc.). The male lead kisses a second girl and has sex with her. Heavy innuendo.


Gory brain-eating. Bloody zombie faces. Vomiting embalming fluid. Images from a gory movie on TV. Car accident with blood and gore shown. Fighting. Arguing.


Frequent use of words including "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "ass," "Jesus" (as an exclamation), "goddamn," "d--k," "bitch," "douchebag," "poon."

Social Behavior

A white lie snowballs into a bigger problem; characters never properly deal with it, and no real lessons are learned.


Mention of Red Bull.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Character gets comically drunk on absinthe. Reference to "meth heads."
