No. Hot Fuzz is based on a screenplay by director Edgar Wright and principal actor Simon Pegg.

What does the title mean?

"The fuzz" is a slang term for the police.

Here's a few:

"Bugger" is a general expletive or is used to refer to someone negatively.

"Collar match the cuff" refers to the color of someone's pubic hair being the same as the hair on their head. This is similar to the American phrase "carpet matches the drapes."

"Jog on" means "Move on (or f**k off / get lost)."

A solicitor is a term used in common law practicing countries, such as England, where such a person practices aspects of law for a client. More commonly known as a lawyer. Although the terms are occasionally used interchangably, "barrister" refers to a lawyer who represents clients in court while "solicitor" refers to a lawyer who represents clients in non-litigation matters such as wills and real estate transactions.

The name on the grave was "Irene Butterman," Danny's mother. She killed herself by driving her car off a cliff after gypsies moved into a field and destroyed any chances of the village winning the "Village of the Year" competition.

Sgt Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) accuses Simon Skinner (Timothy Dalton) of murdering Martin Blower (David Threlfall), Eve Draper (Lucy Punch), and George Merchant (Ron Cook) because they were working together to get land for the new bypass. If the bypass was accessible by road then it would be a good location for a retail park, which would make Skinner go out of business. He basically thinks Skinner killed them all because they were competition. He then accuses Skinner of killing Tim Messenger (Adam Buxton) because Messenger was a loose end who knew about the Blower/Draper/Merchant thing. Angel also accuses Skinner of killing Leslie Tiller (Anne Reid) because she was going to sell up to the land developers.

Here are some (and still counting):

"For the greater good" said by most of the characters.
"It was an accident" said by the two Andys; also said by Danny.
"By the power of Greyskull" said by Danny then by Angel.
"You're a doctor, deal with it" said by Angel both times.
"It weren't me" said by Danny both times.
"A great big bushy beard" said by Frank Butterman. It can be heard again through voice over when Angel sees the dead bodies in the cellar.
"Yes he is" or "Yes they are" said by the Andys.
"Very good.. what he said" Sgt. Fisher spoke about Angel's plans, then said by Angel about Fisher's plan.
"Nasty way to go!"
"Fascist".
"Hag".
"Swan".
"Crusty jugglers".
"I didn't know nothing 'bout no 'skellingtons'!".
"Nobody tells me nothin' ".
"Sergeant. Angel! Somebody from London called for you.".
"My perfect Sunday is...".
"Hello Nicholas! How's the hand?".
"It's still a bit stiff.".
*(blows raspberry) accompanied by vulgar hand gesture* "Jog on!".
"Roger that!".
"You don't know how to switch off!".
"Her horticultural expertise helped put Sandford on the map!".
"Oh, she is/was ever so good." (said by Joyce about Leslie Tiller, before and after Leslie's death).
"Big 'un"..
"Yarp".
"Greg...was an extra in Straw Dogs, and Sheri played a cadaver in Prime Suspects.".
"...listed her age as 55" , "When I'm/she's actually 53!","53!".
"...three hours of so-called acting last night, and the kiss was the only convincing moment in it. ".
"Aaron A. Aaronson.".
"It's a Japanese Peace Lily.".
"Pub?".
"I suppose."
Here are some almost-repeats: Angel: We can't accept gifts from someone we've officially rebuked'; then Danny: We can't accept gifts from someone we've officially 'reviewed'. Angel: He's appointed himelf Judge, jury, and executioner; then Danny: He is NOT Judge Judy and executioner! "No luck finding them swans, then?" "It's just the one swan actually" followed by "No luck finding them killers, then?" "It's just the one killer actually." "That Sergeant Angel's in your shop...check out his arse..." "That Sergeant Angel's back...check out his horse..."

It was 'Bonum Commune Communitatis,' Latin for 'The common good of the community.'

According to Arthur Webley, he just 'found them'. Given how well armed the NWA were in the final shootout, it seems likely that the guns belonged to them and that Webley either stumbled across them or was given them for safekeeping.
