30 Hot Fuzz Quotes That’ll Stand the Test of Time

If you’re a Simon Pegg and Nick Frost fan, you’ll love these Hot Fuzz quotes we’ve compiled for you!

Hot Fuzz is a comedy and action movie that took the world by storm! It’s the second and most successful installment of the Three Flavors Cornetto, a trilogy of British comedy movies directed by Edgar Wright.

Here, we follow two police officers as they investigate the mysteries behind a series of gruesome deaths. This premise, in itself, is serious; after all, it deals with murder. However, what makes Hot Fuzz a comedic delight is Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman’s partnership.

They couldn’t have been more different. Angel is a high-achieving Metropolitan Police officer who’s perceptive and highly intelligent. On the other hand, Butterman is a fan of buddy cop movies and is naive and lazy.

From this, we can already see how hilarious their interactions will be! So, read on to find the most famous lines from one of the best comedy movies ever.

How Would You Describe Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman’s Partnership?

Hot Fuzz was released back in 2007. Even so, whenever we watch it or read its quotes, we’re still struck by its humor that’ll never get old. It has a certain kind of cleverness that will challenge its viewers to keep up and understand what’s happening.

Buried beneath all the laughs, Hot Fuzz makes us reflect on discrimination. When we truly understand what’s going on with the plot, we see that the village elders kill people whom they think do not fit the rural image they’re going for.

Even today, we can still see people who distort their faces when others talk about the town’s so-called outsiders. There always seems to be a divide, and Hot Fuzz showed us precisely that.

All this happened through Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman’s partnership. Though their teamwork was simply due to work, we can’t contest how much they made us laugh. And, more so, we can’t deny the lessons we’ve learned from Hot Fuzz through them.

With that, we hope we were able to give you a more profound understanding of what goes on in society. Hot Fuzz might be a comedy through and through, but make sure you never forget about the morals it also contains.
