All the fuss for Fuzz
Hot Fuzz has excellent comedy writing says, Sympatico’s Angela Baaldasarre. Read on:
A hilarious spoof of police action films, Edgar Wright’s “Hot Fuzz” is the best comedy writing I’ve sat through in years. Actor/co-screenwriter Simon Pegg and his fellow star Nick Frost were responsible for the laughs in Wright’s “Shaun of the Dead,” and this time the team reunites for a more ambitious and pumped-up project that is equally as funny.
The fast-paced opening introduces us to Nicholas Angel (Pegg), a dedicated London cop whose arrest rate is 400 percent higher than that of any other police officer. Humourless and dull, Angel’s social life consists of watering his Japanese peace lily every night. Following a job-related injury, Angel returns to work only to find out that he’s being transferred to the remote village of Sandford in the West Country. This sequence had me on the floor as Angel tries desperately to keep his London position, but one by one his superiors (delicious cameos by Martin Freeman, Steve Coogan and Bill Nighy), tired of being belittled by Angel’s success, push him out.
