Movie review: Zombieland

Despite hearing nothing but rave reviews for it, I still didn't want to sit through Zombieland. Zombie movies aren't really my thing, but my husband loves them. After the first few minutes, he told me that I needed to watch this and restarted the movie.

The basic premise is that a virus has taken over the world. Almost everyone has turned into zombies. All of the characters (except for one well-placed cameo) are named after cities. The main character is called Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), since he is heading there to see if his parents are still alive. On the way, he meets Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), a rather violent yet fun-loving guy in search of a mere Twinkie. Eventually, two sisters, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), finish out the group. Together, they head toward California's Pacific Playland, where the sisters believe there are no zombies.

Zombieland is absolutely hysterical. I laughed my entire way through it. My husband was right. Everyone should see this movie. Even if you hate zombies, I'm pretty sure this will still be your new favorite film.
