How Dawn of the Dead is Like Mad Men?

I finally got to see Dawn of the Dead last night.

Yes, a noticeable lapse in my Zombie education.  Anyhow, what was most striking about the movie?  That it reminded me of Mad Men.  How?  Marveling at the pregnant woman who smoked and drank.  In a movie that came out in 1978!  Attitudes have changed a lot over the past thirty years.

Actually, even more striking than that: that one of the guys suggested that the woman might want to abort, given the nasty lives they were going to lead in a Zombie-filled world. 

Anyhow, the movie was entertaining with heaps of cheesy Zombie-violence and nice evolution of thinking about how to live in a mall.
