I had, unfortunately, missed this one at the theaters. Of course, the previous offering from these blokes (Shaun of the dead) didn't exactly have me rolling on floor laughing either (though it had it's moments).
This movie stars Simon Pegg as Nicholas Angel, an overachieving pollice officer who is sent to the quiet village of Sandford. At first, it seems that the village is so quiet that the most serious offenses to be found are minor acts of vandalism, underage drinking, and an overreaction to someone passing through as a Living statue.
Soon this changes, as villagers begin to die under mysterious circumstances. the village police force (a rather inept force, at that), is willing to chalk it up to accidents, but Angel believes otherwise. Soon, the movie begins to go through as many police movie cliches as possible (as this is a parody of police movies, that is to be expected).
I give this four out of five police badges.
PS Keep an eye out for cameos by Peter Jackson as a Santa, Cate Blanchett (Galadriel from LOTR) as Angel's former girlfriend/crime scene investigator, and Bill Nighy (Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean) as the London police commssioner.
