Uproarious new film by Shaun of the Dead director Edgar White about a tough London sergeant (Simon Pegg) who is relocated to a bucolic British village and paired with a sweet bumbling PC (Nick Frost). He begins to suspect a series of deaths are not accidental but can't get anyone to help him track down a shadowy hooded character seen fleeing from each crime scene. A takeoff on buddy-cop movies, the finale -- involving a violent shoot-out throughout the village-is wickedly funny. Pegg and Frost make a great pair: a postmodern Laurel and Hardy. Even the wonderful Bill Nighy and Steve Coogan make cameos in this hilarious film.
