The thing I loved most about Zombieland was that it refused to be bogged down by semantics and tore into the fun parts straight from the opening credit sequence with Metallica's 'For Whom the Bell Tolls'. Colombus' narrative was hilarious, and he had great chemistry with Tallahassee. Lots of great humor of course, but also a bit of heart that makes you care about the characters involved. The Bill Murray sequence was indeed inspired. There is no reason not to see this movie if you love zombies, comedies, zombedies, or even Twinkies, for that matter.

Zombieland is nothing short of fantastic. In an age where movies destroyed zombies, Zombieland gives you back the classic feel with a sense of understanding. The script is written brilliantly, and the acting is bar none the highest caliber. Jesse Eisenberg plays Columbus, who does the narrative. Just a "normal" kid who's life as a loner actually contributed to his survival. Columbus runs into Tallahassee who is played by Wooody Harrelson (yes, 3 o's due to swear filter). Tallahassee is a badass zombie killing machine, who gets off on killing zombies. Tallahassee gives a ride to the ever nerdy/geeky World of Warcarft player than is Columbus, and it's a non-stop ride of laughter. No cheap laughs in this movie, they really took their time to make it fit into character. This is what makes this movie great, perhaps the best zombie movie ever.
They run into Wichita and Little Rock, who are sisters. And they are chasing them for the movie, whither they try to or not. Their relationship is truly fun to watch and see develop in this loony post apocalyptic tale. If you are a crazed movie lover like myself, you must see this if you haven't already. I wonder if I am the only one who wanted this movie to keep going, I could watch this narrative go of for weeks. This is the funny I Am Legend, but not any less brilliant. Don't want to ruin any great moments of the film, so I will just tell you to see this, or you will be missing out.
