An outstanding film. I am seriously contemplating seeing it again, if only because of all the jokes in the background. In particular you have to listen to the radio chatter in the background, some of the comments are hilarious.
I think they take just about every American cop film cliche and weave it in seemlessly. The comedy was very subtle in places. I don't mean to sound like a smart arrse but at quite a few points in the film myself and partner were the only people in the cinema laughing, and I think there are more gags in there that will require a second viewing. I suspect it'll go completely over the yank's heads. Little things, like the NWA (Neighbourhood Watch Association parody of N!**ers With Attitude) and anyone who's ever lived in a country village will find it painfully close to the bone. It was awesome. Go see it. Go see it twice if you're thick, or want to laugh again.
Top film cried with laughter for most of it. The plot dragged on a bit but the one liners just kept coming. There were an awful lot of "in" Police jokes though, the whole Sandford thing for a start. Its the coppers equivilant of Copehill Down. Definately one for the DVD collection, dont think our coalition partners will get it though!
This is ARRSE. An excellent comedy film, featuring an SLR with wooden furniture, lots of great jokes and a group of combat trolley parking mongs throwing fruit, and the best you lot can bleat on about is copper in jokes?
saw it last night, thought it was really funny. cracking quotes - "2 guys and a shitload of cutlery". hilarious moments - drop-kicking a granny in the face. shooting OAPs.
very similar in mentality to shaun of the dead (unsurprisingly). some of the jokes you can see coming - i started laughing about 5 seconds before everyone else with the final point break gag (probably just means ive seen it too many times lol).
on the whole - facking funny. almost as many genuine laughs as Borat
I found it nowhere near as funny as the hype had me believe - that'll teach me to read reviews! Confused the hell out of me at times, wasn't expecting much of the plot!
The film was ruined for the first half by the tw@t behind us kicking our chairs and talking, but the biggest laugh was him and his missus walking out halfway through because they didn't understand most of the humour!!
Will watch it again if only to see the first half properly! And myself and my friend were also the only ones laughing for some of it, not sure if that makes us clever or what...but I'm sure it does
