A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the duo meets up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos. Reluctant partners in the battle against the undead, all four soon begin to wonder if it might be better to simply take their chances alone. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For rambunctious laughs, you can hardly beat Zombieland, a pedal-to-the-metal mix of ghoul gore, smartmouth humor and filmmaking savvy."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Wildly implausible, slightly scary and plot-lite though Zombieland is, it stands to add a few comic bons mots to popular parlance."
‑ Ruth McCann, Washington Post
"Zombieland is a juicy, bloody and hysterical escapade that breaks all the rules -- even when everyone in it is trying to follow them."
‑ Vince Horiuchi, Salt Lake Tribune
"Zombieland is an hilarious jaunt through a futuristic America ravaged by a contagion that has changed all but a lucky few into flesh-chomping predators."
‑ Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo
"Zany, brainy and drop-dead funny, Zombieland is a marvel that might be this year's best horror film as well as its best comedy, rolled into one ooey, gooey mess."
‑ Michael Smith, Tulsa World
"Warts, entrails and all, I had a ball at Zombieland. It's 81 minutes of my kind of stupid."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Scattershot but sharp, this postapocalyptic road comedy gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"Zombieland succeeds because it doesn't aspire to be anything more than a smart, well-produced action flick with snappy dialogue and memorable characters."
‑ Michael Saba, Paste Magazine
"It is never properly scary. Mostly, it is just very silly, but because the film knows it is silly, it's all rather infectious and not the big, cliché-pumped bore it might otherwise have been."
‑ Deborah Ross, The Spectator
"A smart, snarky take on battling the undead, this comic horror-thriller pokes fun at pop culture and piles on the gore."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Woody Harrelson has a rip-roaring time in this comic splatterfest as a redneck from hell who is out to kill zombies. It's the kind of genre acting that doesn't get much notice, but it's a gleeful rampage of a performance."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"Director Ruben Fleischer has his eyes trained on the comic jugular, and he attains an astronomical laugh count from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernickat's fizzing, pop-savvy script."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Strap in for this one kids, and remember to avoid bathroom breaks, because Zombieland has arrived and it is going to chew up your eyeballs and spit them out."
‑ Brian Salisbury, Film School Rejects
"It's a zombie movie. It's a teen romance. It's a comedy. It's a hunt for that most elusive of snack foods, the Hostess Twinkie. Welcome to Zombieland. Watch out for marauding cannibals, and fasten your seatbelts."
‑ Jay Stone, Canada.com
"Zombieland falls somewhere between affectionate parody and straight-up horror movie, but it keeps getting confused about what sort of movie it wants to be."
‑ Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
