These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Timothy Dalton's character getting his chin impaled on the spire of a model church: gross and disturbing. Timothy Dalton then whining in pain and asking for ice cream: hilarious.
Angel finding the corpses of the NWA's victims is pretty frightening and worthy of a slasher movie. However, finding the corpse of the Living Statue over-acting his own death is just too intentionally ridiculous to keep the horror going.
Taking out James Reaper's old mother with a jump kick to the face also qualifies.
Crowning Music of Awesome: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion wrote the "Here Comes The Fuzz" theme which appears regularly throughout the film
And kicks as much ass as Nicholas himself.
Ending Fatigue: While the big shootout at the end is a tribute to cop movies, it can seem like an Overly-Long Gag to some. then after the shootout we are treated to the station exploding, a graveside scene, and back in action. While the fatigue might not have been intentional, the producers note in the commentary that the effect was; they were partly influenced by Bad Boys 2, and particularly the moment where it all seems to be ending, but then Martin Lawrence declares "This shit just got real," and the movie keeps on going. It is, of course, down to the individual viewer whether this was a wise thing to be inspired by.
The filmmakers interviewed a lot of police officers with regards to how to make the film accurate. They noted that most Police Procedural depictions skip all the paperwork that's involved in criminal investigations.
Angel: Sorry, not right now. We've got a tremendous amount of paperwork to do.
Sandford is the name of the fictional town traditionally used in UK police training exercises.
Insinuated by the Andys, and the protagonists. According to the trivia track, this is largely because the script once included a love interest named Victoria for Angel. After the character was cut, much of her dialogue was instead given to Danny, often without edits. For example, after getting drunk at the pub, Danny and Angel have a reallyHo Yay conversation about Angel's inability to "disconnect" with work (Danny is using lines meant for Veronica). As the conversation gets more and more homoerotic-sounding, Danny suggest he knows a way for Angel to disconnect, doing said suggestion in an extremely Ho Yay tone... only to reveal his DVD collection of action films.
"Well, this is me. Fancy a coffee?"
Then the writers and actors went and wrote a whole series of slashdrabbles. On Twitter. (In response to discovering the fans who were doing so.) Wright comments there "We wrote some Nick/Danny slash once. It was called Hot Fuzz."
The scene where Nicholas discovers all the bodies stashed underground.
Moreover, the concept of the town in general, where everything is run by a shady organization more than willing to kill for absurd, petty reasons.
Skinner rushing at a defenseless Angel, boxcutter in hand, with pure, blind rage in his eyes. Let's face it: it was pure luck that saved Angel's life, there.
The reporter's death. His head is crushed, and he stumbles around for a minute before finally falling over.
One-Scene Wonder: There are quite a few cameos and every actor is hilarious. But special mention must go to Bill Nighy as Kenneth, the chief inspector and Martin Freeman and Steve Coogan in the opening scene.
Did you know that Peter Jackson is in the movie, uncredited? He's in for all of 2 seconds, stabbing Nicholas in the hand dressed as Father Christmas.
And Cate Blanchett, who you'll likely miss unless you're good at recognizing eyes, as Angel's girlfriend.
