Movie review: Hot Fuzz

It was a beautiful weekend, the first time all year that it felt like spring.

Saturday I went to see Hot Fuzz with a friend (Rotten Tomatoes). Hot Fuzz is a police action comedy from the makers of Shaun of the Dead (Shaun of the Dead was a real delight, amazingly funny, and touching). Hot Fuzz is not as good as Shaun. The story is weaker, the movie is more cluttered, and many of the jokes get lost in the noise of the soundtrack. That said, it was very enjoyable. Definitely a good thing to see for fairly mindless summer fun (mindless, with a dash of sophistication... these guys are great at writing comedy and you can't help but laugh).
