So, what's the deal with this movie? Did people actually think it was funny?

For serious.

    When it hit theaters there were threads, and many of the people who saw it thought it was quite funny.

    Was it funny because it was English?

    Because I'm pretty sure, if it was American, people would be like "Man, this movie fucking sucks dicks".

    Man, the scene wher they walked into the barn with all the guns, and there was a good 15 seconds of guns, guns and more guns, and then a depth charge, was just awesome.

    no, it was funny because it was funny

    and while the british have a way making things work that americans can't pull off, it was funny on it's own merits

    Hot Fuzz was hilarious.

    All the parts with the BFF cop dude were awesome, especially in the end when he shot the gun into the air and shouted, just because of the buildup I dunno.

    It's one of my favorite movies.

    Well, see that logic is flawed, because America doesn't make comedies this awesome anymore.

    I saw this in theaters. It was a bit hard to hear what the fuck they were saying sometimes. I have a feeling that I missed a lot of the smaller more subtle jokes. Overall it was quite enjoyable, though. Also any movie that references the amazing Point Break in any way (I have that bitch on VHS!) gets a thumbs up from me.

    I still refer to people clubbing as "laying down shapes in the temple of sound."

    A horribly butchered quote from the clubbing episode that ends with Mike leading the entire club in a dance to the A-Team's theme tune, but still..

    I saw Hot Fuzz twice in the theater, at Arc Light prices (for those in the L.A. area who realize the significance of that). So fucking good, it's ridiculous.

    My favorite exchange was at the grocery store, towards the end. The bit about witty one-liners. You know the one. I'd spoiler tag the exact quotes, but I am too drunk to recall it exactly, and wouldn't want to butcher it.

    I saw this with a couple of friends of mine. I was never big into the whole zombie thing so I never bothered seeing Shaun of the Dead. This movie though, I could easily recommend to a multitude of people. It's just funny and well put-together.
