Shaun of the Dead (2004)
So basically: Shaun, played flawlessly by Simon Pegg, is a "dead"-beat living with his best friend, Ed. He also has a girlfriend, Liz, who he has yet to introduce to his mother. When his girlfriend finally gets fed up and dumps him, Shaun must try and win her back by getting his life sorted out. However, things get turned upside-down when he wakes up the next morning to find the whole town has been turned into real zombies. Shaun and Ed must now go rescue Shaun's mother from his step-dad, who has been bitten by a zombie, and find out if his ex-girlfriend is alright. They gather up not only those two, but Liz's two best friends - who are not so thrilled with the idea of following Shaun. Their destination? The Winchester pub.
I love this movie! It's absolutely hilarious and anyone who says differently is off their rocker. It's a beautiful tale of bromance as Shaun continues to play Playstation with his zombified best friend. I totes have a boy-crush on Simon Pegg - he's especially sexy with a dart in his head.
Well, duh this should be on the list. Who wouldn't want to watch a rom-com with the added bonus of zombies?! Please.
Ziggi seal of approval!
