Hot Fuzz (2007)

Directed by
Edgar Wright

Fresh from their successful comedy horror classic Shaun of the Dead, Simon Pegg and Nicholas Frost reunited in 2007 for Hot Fuzz. A cult film that was a big hit in Hollywood, Shaun of the Dead was a hard act to follow, but Pegg and Frost made a convincing stab at it with this surreal suburban police comedy, co-written by Pegg and director Edgar Wright.

Met cop Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is so good at his job that he's making everyone else look bad. So when his arrest record hits 400 per cent, crafty Chief Inspector Kenneth (Bill Nighy) assigns him to another division - the sleepy village of Sandford.

At first glance, Sandford is a do-gooders' heaven and Angel is going to have nothing more to deal with than daft PC Danny Butterman (Nicholas Frost). But when a string of grisly deaths rock the village, Angel begins to suspect that there's more to this rural idyll than meets the eye...

Unusually Pegg plays it fairly straight as Angel, but he works well as a comic foil once he teams up with Frost as bumpkin Butterman. And there's good support from a solid cast, including Martin Freeman, Bill Bailey, Edward Woodward and Timothy Dalton.
