I’ve just returned from a lazy Sunday daytime visit to the cinema to watch Hot Fuzz. Not sure if the film is a commentary on the social dynamics of small countryside villages and the mindset of the people therein or a piss funny homage to the American Buddy Cop films. Somewhere between the two methinks. As a big fan of Spaced and Shaun of the Dead I did wonder if the same team of Pegg, Frost and Wright could do it again but they manage to pull it off with aplomb. It’s certainly the funniest British film about coppers since Cannon & Ball made The Boys In Blue. I am joking of course, that was cack. Although the theme tune was quite catchy.
Look out for it popping up on a Guilty Pleasures compilation anytime soon.
