A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) paints a "3" on his cars as a reference to Dale Earnhardt. Both cars that Tallahassee drove were based on the color schemes of Earnhardt's cars.
Oh, America. I wish I could tell you that this was still America, but I've come to realize that you can't have a country without people. And there are no people here. No, my friends. This is now the United States of Zombieland.
When Tallahasee and Columbus are in the supermarket, Tallahasee kills a zombie with a banjo. In the next shot of him he is holding what appears to be a metal pipe and the banjo has gone. However, the "metal pipe" is an aluminum baseball bat. Tallahassee is seen with the bat prior to playing the banjo. After killing the first zombie with the banjo, he switches to the bat. Then switches to the pruning sheers before killing the third zombie. It's clear that he uses each weapon only once, then changes each time.
The opening titles are knocked aside in slow motion by various elements in the scenes like the characters, gunfire, automobiles.
