Description from imdb:
In the horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss -- but when you're afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee is an AK-toting, zombie-slaying' bad ass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita and Little Rock, who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies.

Tagline: This place is so dead

Amusing quote: I could tell she knew what I was feeling, we all are orphans in Zombieland. -Columbus

Zombie speed: fast

Zombification: virus related to mad cow disease

Zombie mode: feral

My thoughts:
In-a-word(s): Double Tap

I agree with Fishmuffins of Doom, this is a heartwarming movie.

The movie takes you into a zombie comedy-adventure with 4 survivors in a zombocalyptic world.

You'll see some:

grocery shopping and zombie slaying

road trip bonding and zombie slaying

amusement park ride riding and zombie slaying

What more can you ask for in a zombie movie?

Lessons to be learned? Yessum. The big block-lettered rules are thrown into the movie - literally. So, if anything, you'll be a little bit more prepared if when there is a zombie threat.

Ewww moment: the manwiche

Amusing moment: Columbus's Rules pop-ups

End credits: must stick around for the very end of the movie, like, past the very last credit because you'll get a little something extraaaaaa!

Spoiler: Below is Columbus's list of rules for surviving in the zombie-infested world. This is a partial list. These rules are the ones that appear in the movie. I have a hunch the complete list will appear in the DVD (i hope).

According to Wikipedia, A series of non-canonical promotional videos starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg have expanded on the list. Also, in pre-release trailers for the film, some of the rules were presented in a different order.

Zombieland Rules is compiling the rest of the list.

This is a spoiler, so if you're going to watch the movie just make your eyes all glazed-like and bypass this section or stop reading this post altogether.

  1. I think I'd be a bit too squeamish for this movie...maybe if it had a little less gore! But it does look funny!

  2. I can't believe there was something at the end of the credits! My sister and I usually stay, but there hasn't been a movie we've seen that's done that in so long that we didn't want to wait any more. I guess we'll just have to go see it again!

    I would also love to see the complete list. Maybe they could publish a companion list book? Anyway, great review!

  4. Heartwarming?? heehhehehehehee

    Good one. Heart warming because you feel all warm and fuzzy afterward, or heart warming meaning your heart is beating out of its chest?

  5. I LOVED this movie. It was just so off-beat and silly and hilarious and amazing... I screamed, laughed, and even teared up a little. Great entertainment and totally worth the $10. Great review. Double tap & Check the backseat - AMAZING! XD
