Fast-paced, often witty sendup of police buddy films as an overachieving officer (Simon Pegg, who also co-wrote the script) is reassigned to a sleepy country town where he's confronted with a series of fatal "accidents," and how he and laid-back sidekick (Nick Frost) set out to find the culprit. Canny direction by co-writer Edgar Wright and a top-flight British cast (including Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Anne Reid, Billie Whitelaw and Edward Woodward) plays to the hilt, but some viewers may find the escalating violence and salty language offensive, even in this satiric context. Some rough and crude language, violence with bloodshed including stabbings and decapitations, some grisly images, innuendo and underage drinking. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
