Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, given the current popularity of zombie apocalypse stories, Warm Bodies should appeal to plenty of teens. With its Romeo and Juliet romance and appealing leads -- not to mention a popular young adult book as its source material -- the movie is aimed squarely at adolescent viewers. There's a notable amount of violence, including a considerable body count (zombies kill humans and eat their brains). Although the zombies barely speak, there's some strong language (one "f--k," several uses of "s--t," "a--hole," etc.), and a sweet romance that builds up to a passionate kiss (as well as some making out shown in flashbacks). But overall, there's less sexual content here than in the book. Despite the violence, this is a funny love story at heart.

Sexual Content

Unlike the book -- which features some explicit references to sex, zombie genitalia, and skin-to-skin contact -- the movie is tamer, with a couple of kissing scenes (in flashback), plus flirting, hand-holding, and eventual kissing between R and Julie. In one scene, Julie is so cold in her wet clothes that she strips down to her bra and panties in order to get dry.

Violence

There's zombie vs. human and zombie vs. zombie violence. The Boneys are skeleton zombies who no longer have any flesh, and they're ruthless and freaky looking. In a couple of scenes, zombies are shown attacking humans, but the quick editing doesn't focus on the gore. The main character and his zombie pals kill a bunch of young adults, and R eats a particular man's brains for a big part of the movie. Human militias shoot and kill zombies.

Language

Several uses of "s--t," plus "a--hole," one memorable "f--k," "hell," "ass," "crap," "oh my God," and a couple of "bitches."

Social Behavior

A central message is that all it takes to spark humanity in others is the expression of humanity -- and that even just a couple of optimists can make a huge difference. Although the story is Romeo and Juliet-esque in that the central romantic couple is from antagonistic sides, unlike Shakespeare's tragedy, love conquers the greatest of differences in Warm Bodies -- in this case, the bridge between life and death.

Consumerism

Even after the zombie apocalypse, there are brands that have survived. Some of the ones featured or mentioned include BMW, USA Today, Corona beer, iPod, Prozac, Cream of Wheat, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

It's unclear how old Julie is, but she does drink a Corona beer that R offers her.
