6. Judging from the previews, it's a very stupid non-funny movie.
Waste of time.

12. Judging from that post, you are a very ignorant and uninformed poster.
Waste of bandwidth.

14. I'm feeling snarky tonight, what can I say?
And you don't fuck with Shaun of the Dead. One of the best comedies AND zombie movies out there.

23. Absolutely...
... not often that a film that is "lampooning" a subject is ALSO actually a damned good film in the genre it is sending up...

Quite a coup..

19. We liked it so much we bought it.
I still can't watch the scene where the guy gets pulled thru the window of the Winchester, though.
The guy that plays Shaun co-wrote it.

22. Now then, now then, now then...
... you are WELL into my territory of humour with such a choice. It's an example of the very best, very "English" humour. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright (the writers) cut their teeth on the simply sublime Spaced (series first shown on C4 in the UK) - and as I see has been mentioned elsewhere on this thread it is WELL worth trying to get hold of them - you'll see where so much of the humour in Shaun had it's genesis.

After having caught the film on general release in the UK I then grabbed a copy of the DVD as soon as it came out and watched it about a dozen times consecutively just to be sure I wasn't missing anything!
