I'm not a fan of modern/contemporary British comedy and didn't like Pegg et al. I caught Shaun of the Dead by mistake and thoroughly enjoyed it so I thought I'd check out Hot Fuzz (the poster alone made my day every morning!).
I wasn't disappointed. The plot is outlined in other reviews and the only thing I'd add is that the second half of the film is better and funnier with some fantastic one-liners and plenty of over-the-top action. Rural people will probably enjoy it more than city bods (being a bit of both I'm sorry to say I saw a bit of myself in some characters!!). Pegg is absolutely brilliant and I wanted to hug him after the film ended!
To summarise, it's funny, it's stupid, it's ludicrous and it's childish and it's one of the best films I've seen this year!
