Item Details

Nicholas Angel is the finest cop London has to offer. He has an arrest record that is higher than any other officer on the force. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place where his talents won't be quite so obvious. They send him to the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. He is partnered with the well-meaning but overeager police officer Danny Butterman, who is the son of the police chief. Danny is a huge action movie fan and believes this may be his chance to experience the life of gunfights and car chases. However, as a series of grisly accidents rocks the village, Angel is convinced that Sandford is not what it seems and as the intrigue deepens, Danny's dreams of explosive, high-octane, car-chasing, gunfighting, all-out action seem more and more like a reality.

Very funny if you don't mind the rivers of blood and guts flowing through the most beautiful village in England.

Really funny tongue-in-cheek British humor at its finest. Almost (sarcastically) wraps up like a Clint Eastwood movie. I loved it.

I am a big Simon Pegg fan, and this is arguably my favorite of his movies (The World's End being the other contender.) Absolutely hysterical, especially if you love British comedy. The blend of action and comedy is brilliant, and handled exceptionally well. Great movie.

Great movie and laugh out loud funny. British humor at its best. I am now following the actors from this movie with great results in great movies. A must see, and for those who don't get British humor, watch again and intersperse with Monty Python & Benny Hill.

A few years ago i read about this movie in one of many audo magazines i subscribe to. The reviewer said it was funny. But what really got me is what he said about the sound. This movie begs for HOMETHEATER!!! I completely agree about the audio in this comedy. The audio is "Sound Freak" approved. I was blown away not just by the story, and it's funny, but the sound. My subwoofers were quite busy producing low frequency effects that this movie contains. And the rest of my speakers were equally busy. I've added this police buddy comedy to my colection, and i'm giving it 5 stars!!!! It's funny, good story, and great sound. Turkey, ham, american cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, a pickle, and coke.

Awesome movie. It was not at all what I was expecting. I've taken it out multiple times and never got around to watching it. Was I ever missing out. A great film and Simon Pegg was hilarious!
