That Movie Clip Wednesday dog torturer, Boxer is way too busy dragging her poor dog through the mud to return as hostess. So it's the Milk River Madman that continues to take up the mantle that is MCW, the Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme and tries to keep the clip or clips to around 3 minutes long. This week's theme is FAVORITE BRITISH COMEDY. Well, apparently Moi picked this category and I've gotta tell you, it's a tough one for me. Joanna Cake and Roses should have no trouble with this. But for us Americans (well, me anyway) British humor is mainly Monty Python, Peter Sellers and Mr. Bean (and I hate Mr. Bean). And we've kind of done those to death.
There is, however, a relatively new (again, for me anyway) British upstart who I like a lot. Simon Pegg's big claim to fame is 2004's Shaun of the Dead, which is truly hysterical and that I've posted on before. He did another film in 2007 called Hot Fuzz which I also found pretty funny. It co-stars Nick Frost (Ed from SotD) who is Pegg's buddy, who has appeared in several of his films and is John C. Reilly funny as the classic sidekick. So here you go:
I love this scene:
Head on over to the Madman's and see what Python, Sellers and Mr. Bean flicks he has going on this week. Next weeks theme - Favorite Middle Eastern Hygiene Movies. What? (I sure hope I'm kidding).
