Violent, gooey, funny zombie-comedy. Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland
) and Woody Harrelson are the stars of the show, with Emma Stone (Superbad
) and Little Miss Sunshine
's Abigail Breslin providing support. Pairing relative newcomer Eisenberg and the lovably ornery Harrelson is an inspired decision. The bond between the two holds the movie together during the thinner parts of the screenplay. The stylishly in-your-face staging helps gloss over the aimless parts. The film also includes a wonderful cameo appearance by the man, the legend, the one-and-only... oh, I'll withhold the name and let you be surprised. As zombie-comedies go, Shaun of the Dead
remains at the top of the heap (not that the heap of zombie-comedies is all that big), but Zombieland
is a major minor treat. 87 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track by Harrelson, Eisenberg, director Ruben Fleischer and the writers, two featurettes and some deleted scenes.
