The world has become a cesspool of zombies. Jesse Eisenberg finds himself somewhere in Georgia, trying to get home to Columbus, Ohio, when he meets Woody Harrelson, who is on his way to Ft. Lauderdale, but has a truck to get there. The two of them hook up, and are on their way except for Harrelson’s little compulsion to eat every Twinkie he can find (talk about product placement), and he can’t find many.
But at one store they come across two sisters (Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin). One of them has been lightly bitten by a zombie, and in a minute she will turn into one herself. But of course she doesn’t; the woman and the girl turn the tables on the men and suddenly all four of them are on their way to an amusement park on the West Coast. The four have a nice rapport with each other, and there are no sexual adventures to mar the trip. Just an endless procession of cities, desert and zombies along the way.
Oh, and then when they get to L.A. they stop at Bill Murray’s mansion, but the film leaves out the wit that he might have brought to the episode; in fact, once the group is on their way, the wit seems to have been drained out of the film. Nevertheless, they do arrive at the amusement park (the unfortunately bankrupt Six Flags), the two sisters make it to the top of one of the rides while the zombies try to reach them, they survive and the four of them get going to – where? – I don’t know and you won’t either. The end.
