Revealing mistake: When the Sergeant has the shotguns in the backpack on his back, and you see a close up of his face, you can see that the shotguns do not have triggers. On plastic prop rifles, the trigger is usually molded into the trigger guard in the pulled back position, and you can see this on these prop shotguns.

Revealing mistake: After Angel gets shot in the vest, you get a good closeup of his bandoleer of shotgun shells. You can see the gold paint rubbed off on the primer side of the cartridges, revealing the red plastic underneath. You can also see that the end of the round either just has paper stuffed into it or is completely empty. A real shotgun round will have a brass cap/primer and the end will either be folded completely over (like the shutter of a camera) or show a rifled slug inside. (01:37:20)

Revealing mistake: When the officer holding the double barrel shotgun has it broken open to reload it, you can see that the primers have been dimpled, meaning that they've been fired. The rifle is closed up again without the spent shells being replaced. (01:41:10)

Revealing mistake: When Tim Messenger gets the spike dropped on his head you can tell he has been swapped with a CGI look-alike. (00:56:00)


Revealing mistake: When Nicholas and Danny discover the firearms collection and the sea mine at Webley's farm, they end up running from the barn along with PC Walker (and Saxon) who run to the right of screen, and Webley himself, who runs to the left of screen. Immediately after Webley disappears off-screen to the left, his shotgun barrel swings back into shot. The barrel then drops out of sight behind a low grey structure only a few metres from the door of the barn containing the sea mine, putting Webley on the side of the structure facing the barn. Presumably done to allow the 65-year-old David Bradley, playing Webley, to run only a short distance. (00:42:05)

Revealing mistake: When Michael is unconscious in the freezer after the fight with Angel in the supermarket, there is a close-up of his face and you can see his real teeth behind the prosthetic ones.

Revealing mistake: After Angel leaves Skinner's office to confront the shoplifter, (before Angel arrives next to him at the shelves) the shoplifter isn't putting any items into his pockets - he's merely miming the gesture.

Trivia: Real life police actually praise this movie for one aspect. And that is the realistic depiction of paperwork being done after every event. Most police films and shows never show or talk about the paperwork and cops were glad to see the most annoying part of the job finally get recognition.

More trivia for Hot Fuzz

Answer: Just before "Auntie Jackie's sisters' brothers' boy' legs it, Danny is looking at the DVDs in the supermarket and there's a copy of Shaun of the Dead in the bargain bin...albeit the Spanish version! Only £4.99! It was released as "Zombie Party" in Spain but has the same front cover as UK release.

Answer: Jumping over fences, and "want anything from shop?" "Cornetto". That's just off top of my head having not seen either film in around 3 years.
