Synopses & Reviews
Get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun of the Dead. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped but he's making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling "Outrageous! Uproariously funny!" (Thelma Adams, US Weekly).
"It has more laughs per scene than any film of its kind since the Naked Gun movies." Richard Roeper
"Edgar Wright is one of the four or five contemporary directors of comedy worth watching." Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The movie duly quickens into pursuits of every speed, and the homage to action thrillers is there in the smallest detail; the clicking of a ballpoint pen, say, is amplified to sound as menacing as the cocking of a gun." Anthony Lane, New Yorker
