First Friday Film Series presents: Hot Fuzz (2007) [R] 2 hr 1 min, action/comedy

Friday Dec 1, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are a British comedic duo. Perhaps their best work is Hot Fuzz. Kind of an action movie, kind of a comedy, all of a hilarious take on modern day over-the-top police work (and cinematography) applied to a tiny little English village that may or may not deserve it.

If you love Britcoms, witty verbal and visual ripostes, or explosions and intricate slo-motion choreographed action sequences you’ll love Hot Fuzz. If you don’t, stay home, seriously. This is a weird little movie which I find delightful and I hope you will too. Come join us, won't you?
