Until now the only exposure to Zombieland I'd had was a short theatrical trailer that ran when I checked out District 9 back in August. I remember thinking, Oh, cool, a zombie-comedy with two Superbad stars, Michael Cera and Emma Stone. Well, it took me twenty minutes to realize two things: (1) the lead was not Michael Cera but, rather, a sordid knockoff of Cera, and (2) the movie was headed downhill. After the strong opening twenty minutes, Zombieland turns the viewer into a lethargic zombie for another sixty minutes with boring subplots and a farewell to clever humor. Even the surprise cameo bit doesn't bring the movie or the audience back to life.
