Hot Fuzz

Tues­day, go!, 9pm, MA15+ (2007)

From the warped minds that brought you hi­lar­i­ous horror spoof Shaun of the Dead comes this crim­i­nally funny cop-movie par­ody which plays like Bad Boys meets Mid­somer Mur­ders. Lon­don bobby Ni­cholas An­gel (Si­mon Pegg, pic­tured), a PC with an ar­rest record 400 per cent higher than any other, is sent by a chief in­spec­tor (Bill Nighy) off to a sleepy Som­er­set vil­lage be­cause he’s mak­ing the rest of the force look bad. It’s sup­posed to be an easy gig, but pretty soon he’s up to his eye­balls in mur­der. Along­side Jim Broad­bent and Nick Frost, Timothy Dal­ton is su­perbly slimy as the lo­cal su­per­mar­ket boss in a laugh-out-loud com­edy that runs out of puff in the rather di­ver­gent fi­nale.
