Survivors (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone) of a zombie apocalypse use creative means to dispatch the undead as they make their way toward a rumored safe haven in Los Angeles.
" Scattershot but sharp, this postapocalyptic road comedy gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money. "
" [E]verything Jennifer's Body was not--fast, funny, and fully aware of the obligations and opportunities inherent in the genre. "
" This isn't just a good zombie comedy. It's a damn fine movie, period. And that's high praise, coming from a vampire guy. "
" The undead here could be a rabid group of Garfield toys; it really doesn't matter. What matters is the hyper-crisp, snappy visual pizazz (Fleischer should be tapped for a midlevel superhero flick), the laughs and how well it's all played. "
" Zombieland is a romance, a comedy, a road movie and a freewheeling schlock horrorfest, all in one. "
" ...if you weren't foolish enough to have, say, a dinner of spaghetti and meatballs in advance of seeing it, you... will have a lot of fun. "
" Wildly implausible, slightly scary and plot-lite though Zombieland is, it stands to add a few comic bons mots to popular parlance. "
" We won't ruin it. Let's just say that if laughter distinguishes humans from zombies, then you'll know just how human you are after the quartet's visit to a mansion in Los Angeles. "
" "Nut up or shut up," is the most quotable of Woody Harrelson's cowboy maxims in the genre mash-up Zombieland, and squeamish moviegoers should take it as gospel. "
" At a brisk 80 minutes, the flick isn't a minute too short. Better yet, for those with a sweet fang for confections, it's far more charming than chilling and way more funny than frightening. "
" Though both female characters are underwritten and the movie ends too soon, after a routinely action-packed final act that isn't as fresh as the rest, Zombieland is still the funniest broad comedy since The Hangover. "
" By the time Zombieland reached its climax, I actually cared about who lived and died, and that reaction honestly took me by surprise. "
" It's a black-blood-spitting mugging of a movie, but it's also relentlessly funny and innovative, the sort of film that makes you writhe and laugh at the same time. "
" What you're ultimately left with is a movie for people who think what they really would like to do tonight is watch zombies. "
" Harrelson mugs wonderfully, Eisenberg stutters charmingly, Stone emerges as more than a token hottie, and Breslin plays a hardhearted tweener who, nevertheless, misses Hannah Montana. "
" The humor is vicious and the supporting cast is viscous. But underlying the carnage in Zombieland is a sweetly beating heart. "
" 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. "
" There are even a few poignant moments in the movie, but they don't get in the way of the funny, violent, zombie-killing good time. "
" This movie is fundamentally empty. "
" An improbably delicious comedy about a quartet of human survivors crossing an America that's been taken over by ravenous hordes. (There's even a Charlie Chaplin zombie working Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Chinese Theater.) "
