When Shaun and Ed hit the man in the road while driving Pete's car, he flies over the top and hits the back window, crazing it but not smashing it. When they reverse to check whether he's all right, and in subsequent shots, the window is undamaged. See more »
Why can't there be more British comedies like this?
Shaun of the dead is in a word, brilliant.
I've seen this movie at least 10 times and it never gets old, makes me laugh at each viewing. Having seen Dawn of the Dead, i was expecting just another spoof (as the name implies) but was pleasantly surprised to find a completely original story with some great comedy moments and superb acting all around (not to mention buckets of gore). The first of the rom-com-zom genre, Shaun of the Dead will certainly set the standard for future zombie flicks of its kind, and i can see Pegg having a bright future in comedy. GO RENT IT NOW.
