** A variation of this with [[spoiler:Tom Weaver]] who goes [-"oh god no"-] right before [[spoiler:the sea mine goes off.]] Also a ShoutOut, [[TheWickerMan given the actor]], and quite a bit of GenreSavvy, as the way the line is delivered, [[spoiler:Weaver seems to find it blatantly ridiculous that, after everything that has happened, he's going to get blown up by a World War II sea mine. Angel has one as well right before Weaver says it.]]

Written by Creator/EdgarWright (who directed), starring Creator/SimonPegg (who co-wrote) and co-starring Creator/NickFrost (who plays Danny), this comedy action thriller [[IndecisiveDeconstruction references plenty of tropes and ends up using them]] in the final act. Read : two thirds of the movie explain that these tropes are ridiculous and have no point in real life... Then the film goes [[TropesAreTools full throttle]] on them and applies every one of them to a T... while still keeping up with parodying them. It's also filled with HoYay: even its creators indulged in writing {{slashfic}} on {{Twitter}}.

* OffTheWagon: Angel isn't an alcoholic, but he doesn't drink (at the very least, not on duty). He immediately goes on a bender after a single beer, but still holds his liquor better than another patron...
** Bender is a bit exaggerated. We see him drink three pints, and he seems no more than socially drunk.
