  1. Yet, even at its worst, Zombieland is better than most movies of its kind - disgusting but not too disgusting, and with a few laughs.
  2. The action-comedy Zombieland works because it's played with an emphasis on the living, not the undead.
  3. The movie isn’t particularly scary--not a crime when your goal is laughs. More egregious is the niggling fact that this simply isn’t as witty as "Shaun of the Dead," forever the yuks-meet-yucks standard.

    Fitfully amusing romp directed with little ambition and even less distinction by first-timer Ruben Fleischer.
  5. A minor diversion dripping in splatter and groaning with self-amusement.

    Zombieland is sometimes funny. But those of us who have teeny coronaries every time something goes bump in Zombieland might have a hard time relaxing for long enough to really enjoy ourselves.

    "Zombieland" is a rare movie that actually criticizes the world with its laughs and scare. It's a movie you would despise first and love later.

    Great zombie comedy/horror film besides Shaun of the Dead. Jesse Eisenberg is great and Woody Harrelson is funny.

    uneven moment. Definitely one of the best horror comedies in years.
