This weekend, we are opening one of the most fan-anticipated movies of the year: HOT FUZZ. The trio responsible for SEAN OF THE DEAD (Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright) are back with an adrenaline-fueled comedy romp. We screened the film last month downtown and the crowd reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
"Shaun of the Dead was no fluke. It was a signal, a harbinger of the comic genius that was to come out of a couple of movie geeks from Britain. I haven’t laughed this long and this hard in I don’t know how long. Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are all busy rewriting the rules of the modern comedy. Nobody out there is doing anything close. And no one is safe. Lord only knows who, and what, they’ll take to town next. But god damnit I’m ready to see it." - Ain't It Cool News
Tired of the rehashed half-hearted comedies coming out of Hollywood? Do yourself a favor and check out Hot Fuzz. It's a breath of fresh air, albeit an air tinged with blood and testosterone.
