I can’t recommend Hot Fuzz, the new movie staring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, enough. The comedy comes from over-the-top situations that still manage to be far more subtle in their execution than recent “spoof” films that seem to wait after every joke to make sure the audience gets it. The sound track, now on my to-buy list, works equally well in pushing the “hell yeah!” factor on most scenes through the roof.
Critics have been very supportive of the movie, with an average rating of 89% at RottenTomatoes.com.
Although the movie is only in limited release at 800 screens nation-wide, it’s worth the extra time driving to a movie theater showing it near you.
