The zombie apocalypse as started by chicken nuggets at Fort Chicken, and witnessed by a dude who is properly zoned out on Shrooms. There are two things to note about this movie.
1.) It has made sure I will never-ever-ever eat chicken nuggets again.
2.) If you’re triggered at all by violence to children, you shouldn’t watch this movie. Its not a particular trigger for me, but I winced and thought “Okay, little too far” during some of the scenes (like where a kid is *shown* taking a hit to the head from a fire extinguisher.)
Pokes fun at Wood’s Hobbit role, creationism versus evolution, self-published writers, and a couple unsubtle jibes at stereo-typed Asian behavior (Martial arts, wise words.). The lady bashing head with Cymbals was pretty epic. Not the, uh, musical instrument you were expecting to be used as a death machine.
There was only one scene that provoked a laugh out loud reaction from me, but I’m a fairly choosy comedy person.
Overall, minus the random instances of them pushing the bar just a little too far, Cooties was an amusing way to spend 88 minutes, and well worth the RedBox / Amazon rental, or you can find Cooties now on Amazon.com
