  1. Hot Fuzz (2007) One of the few recent comedies I really enjoyed, a clever parody/mockery of big-budget action and police detective films. "Village citizen Peter Ian Staker: [on the phone to the police department, politely] Morning, the swan's escaped. Newly assigned police officer Sergeant Nicholas Angel: [looking around the office, certain it is a prank] The swan's escaped. Right, and where has the swan escaped from, exactly? Peter Ian Staker: The castle. Nicholas Angel: Oh yeah, and who might you be? Peter Ian Staker: Mr. Staker. Mr. Peter Ian Staker. Nicholas Angel: [annoyed] PI Staker? Right, PISSTAKER! COME ON!! [cut to Angel, standing outside the castle in front of Peter Ian Staker] Nicholas Angel: Yes Mr. Staker, we'll do everything we can. Can you describe it? Peter Ian Staker: It's about two-feet tall, long slender neck, kinda orange and black bill... Nicholas Angel: Anything else? Peter Ian Staker: Well... it's a swan."
