Consider that Hot Fuzz lasts almost 120 minutes.
The first half is genuinely hilarious. Had it stayed like this it would have easily become one of the top 5 British comedies in history. But unfortunately, after the over-the-top and seemingly shoehorned reveal midway (midway!) through the film, Hot Fuzz is forced to become a completely different comedy, and it loses steam fast, becoming a bit of a chore to watch. It feels as if it could have trimmed at very least 45 minutes of footage, all of it in the second half.
