Shaun of the Dead is a humorous homage to Zombie movies from director Edgar Wright; an outrageous romantic comedy with zombies.
The fact that Shaun later in the film can easily impersonate the zombie in order to find his way to the Winchester amongst all the zombies shows how close he is to being one of them and it's a clever bit of characterisation by writers Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright.
There's a brilliant sense of irony present through the entire film too.
and forgetting about his Girlfriend Liz's needs.
When Shaun crosses the line and forgets about a romantic Anniversary dinner with Liz, she dumps him, only for the world to come under attack from Zombies...
