This movie wants to be _Shaun of the Dead_ when it grows up. Unfortunately, it's nowhere nearly as good, and it's never going to grow up. Zombies are a bit of a cliche by now -- so much so, in fact, that the z's here are Dawn '04 Rules ones, but at no point does anyone take the time to explain that. It's also populated by characters who do things that are absurdly stupid even by the standards of comedy. All that being said, this picture is too much fun not to like
Painfully unfunny, incredibly predictable plot. I must admit there were some laughs in the Bull Murray scene, but that's about it. If you want to watch some good zombie comedy, I'd highly recommend 'Shaun of the Dead'.
It becomes increasingly difficult, especially in this day and age, to leave a significant mark on the zombie genre, but Zombieland succeeds pretty thoroughly, from Jesse Eisenberg's narration of the rules on how to survive a zombie apocalypse, to one man's neverending quest to find one singular Hostess treat. This film delivers.
This is just not a good movie. Unoriginal, brings nothing to the genre. Almost unwatchable until Bill Muray shows up, and even though his aspect of the movie was amusing, it was too short, leaving almost nothing of redeeming value for the ending.
My blinding hatred for the main character/narrator obscures all. The socially awkward internet slacker lacking in manual dexterity or even basic coordination is our newest Hollywood stereotype. Well fuck him. Listening to him jabber on while fumbling about so some sassy obnoxious girl(s) and a redneck can take pity on him and save the day is not my idea of an enjoyable movie.
"Zombieland" does well in an already over saturated genre to stand out, but it does... just about. Funny and bloody, with lots of style, and an amesome cameo from the god that is Mr Murray, it's hard not to enjoy this to some degree. The main cast are okay, with Harrelson the stand-out performance of the four, and Eisenberg as slightly irritating as ever. Well worth a watch.
Best horror comedy in a loooooong time. Finally shut-in persons get a protagonist in a zombie flick that they can really connect with. Bill Murray is awesome and humor of it is great. Nothing groundbreaking or new, but it deserves the most of the praise it gets.
