Zombieland

(2009) ★★

Watch: Saturday 1 August, 9pm

One month after Patient Zero ate a rotten burger at a service station, banjo-plucking redneck Woody Harrelson and wallflower college boy Jesse Eisenberg mooch around the American southwest in a world overrun by zombies. They’re trying to stay off the menu. Woody’s gun calibre is way higher than his IQ, which suits the movie fine – it’s an in-joke horror comedy that gets dumber as it goes, and isn’t shy about recycling gags. Quite the cast – the boys are backed up by the olikes of Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin and Amber Heard – but, even so, Eisenberg must’ve wished he was back in Adventureland. When Bill Murray turns up late on, playing Bill Murray, the game’s up. This isn’t a Yankee doodle on Shaun of the Dead (Sky MoviesComedy, Wednesday). It’s Hollywood Squares.
