Feel the Fuzz
04.20.07 by REELZ
For many movie fans, the phrase "British comedy" invokes terrifying images of sappy romantic comedies starring an endlessly stammering Hugh Grant. This week, the Shaun of the Dead gang returns to blast that stereotype to pieces with Hot Fuzz, the first great comedy not involving Will Ferrell since The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
Inspired by Lethal Weapon, Point Break and other action flicks from the 80s and 90s, Hot Fuzz is a hilarious breath of fresh air for those of us who feared that the success of Wild Hogs signaled the death of humor.
