Fails at about everything it attempts but I have seen far worse.
I went in not knowing ANYTHING about ZMD other than it was a Zombie / Comedy. It really does nothing in the Zombie genera that you have not seen before and the comedy and attempts at political satire pretty much always fell flat on their undead faces. There were a couple of good gore and gags moments that made me grin a little but most of the humor left me rolling my eyes. The kind of wit and social satire the writer of ZMD seemed to be going for in this is a fine line to walk on and they only managed to touch their toes to that line a few brief times. The script is not as smart or in tune with pop culture and current events as it tries to be which is sad because there is a good idea in there waiting to be made into a movie. I don't see how anyone could think ZMD can stand up next to movies like Sean of the Dead or Zombieland which both had shining and brilliant performances and a scripts written by people that know and actually understand comedy. Anyone that can't see the difference are themselves mindless zombies.
That said I did not hate ZMD but lets be realistic people it is pretty low on the zombie food chain and I doubt I'll reanimate it's rotten corpse on my TV screen anytime soon.
