Horror/Comedy: Four non-infected survivors of a zombie apocalypse must contend with running into other fellow survivors as well as the introduction of mutant zombies who are faster, stronger and much more difficult to kill.
It's been a decade since we last saw zombie apocalypse survivors Columbus (JESSE EISENBERG), Tallahassee (WOODY HARRELSON), Wichita (EMMA STONE), and her sister Little Rock (ABIGAIL BRESLIN) band together to form an unlikely family unit. Having now taken up residence in the long-abandoned but still secure White House, the four could easily live out their days there. But there's discord among the group, starting with Little Rock who hates that Tallahassee still treats her like a kid and longs to have a boyfriend. He, meanwhile, has developed a case of wanderlust. And while Columbus and Wichita are now a romantic couple, she isn't exactly thrilled that he's just proposed to her.

That comes to a head when the ladies leave without saying goodbye, but things look up for Columbus when he and Tallahassee run into fellow survivor but uber-flighty Madison (ZOEY DEUTCH) in a shopping mall. She returns with them to the White House and she and Columbus end up in bed, but that becomes complicated when Wichita returns and says that Little Rock has run off with pacifist beatnik Berkeley (AVAN JOGIA) for Graceland.

Realizing they need to go there to save her, Tallahassee and the rest find a working minivan and hit the road where they eventually run into Nevada (ROSARIO DAWSON) who's rescued Elvis' museum belongings and set up her own display, as well as Albuquerque (LUKE WILSON) and Flagstaff (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) who are just as adept at killing the zombies as everyone else.

But with Little Rock nowhere in sight, and with a new, faster and more dangerous breed of zombies now on the loose, the group realizes they must find her before it's too late.

If they're fans of the first film (from 2009) or zombie movies in general, they might have some interest.
For bloody violence, language throughout, some drug and sexual content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
