Starring: Woody Harrelson, Abigail Breslin, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg

So, it's a zombie comedy. The apocalypse. A few people survive and find each other, forming an unlikely army against zombies. There's a lot of gore. Some romance. Basically, it's that old joke about quirky people and zombies that you saw in Shawn of the Dead and probably lots of other places. Nerdy kids battling zombies...oh hahahaha!

Whatever, I'm over it.

Also, the humor wasn't up to par. It was rough draft jokes. Like, they chose their jokes during the first brainstorming idea, without trying to make them funnier. Like the line, "I haven't cried this hard since Titanic!" Uh...Titanic? SO the obvious choice. It should have been something random that the character wouldn't have even Weeks Notice with Sandra Bullock. Or...Dan In Real Life. You know, something more obscure. And making jokes about people updating their facebook statuses too much? Thanks, Zaydeh Feldstein, for this knee-slapper. You sure do connect with the kids!

I probably shouldn't write movie reviews when I'm on Ambien.
