RD reference in "Shaun of the Dead"


#1

Saw the new Britsh zombie romantic comedy (www.romzom.com) “Shaun of the Dead” at the weekend. Was happy to find a funny reference to RD. At the climax of the movie the main characters are all threatening each other with broken bottles to the neck in a Mexican standoff while one points a shotgun at the hero’s mum who shouts "Don’t point that gun at my mum!!!"



Made me laugh ;D


#2

That’s awesome. I wanna see this movie soooo bad.


#3

Is Shaun of the dead any good? Or is it another British spoof comedy that’ll be forgotten?


#4

Its good. Its funny. But it is another spoof British comedy that will be forgotten :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

I really want to see that movie. It makes sense, because Dogs was huge in England…

i just saw on tv some British comedy, there were 3 guys and they went to a funeral, with suits and sunglasses. There were walking on the street , and than suddenly you hear Little Green Bag, and there walking in slow-motion and shit. And then a girl says: “Hey, don’t play play Reservoir Dogs”. Does somebody know that? It was quite funny.

It’s cool that they have an RD reference. I don’t know much about Shaun of the Dead other than the British film magazines love it.


#8

Vince, I believe that would be Coupling?

And…IS Reservoir Dogs big over here?

I mean, it IS probably almost as well known as Pulp Fiction, but…

I dunno.

Shaun of the Dead was one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a long time. (keeping in mind that I have a weird sense of humor)


#11

Nice that someone is refering to Reservoir Dogs. Even if that’s a joke.

Shaun of the Dead was the best non-QT film of the year, and I was the only person in my theater who got the RD gag.



Made me feel very smart.



A cookie for whoever caught the references to 28 Days Later and Evil Dead, while we’re on the subject.

I bought Shaun of the dead on DVD yesterday (at last!) I saw it in theatres, and i thought it was great! such a funny film, man!

although to be honest I didnt even notice the RD reference in Shaun of the Dead when I saw it…


#16

which TV Show was that?? (the funeral thing…)


#17

Coupling…“its like a British version of friends, only actually funny” :stuck_out_tongue:


#18

ahhhhhhh really? i wish i’d seen that! I’m not a huge fan of coupling - it’s not the best, but it’s good for a few laughs now and then


#19

Shaun of the Dead is not just another British horror spoof that will soon be forgotten…!



If for no other reason but it’s not a horror spoof, it’s a Romantic Comedy with Zombies…or a Zombie horror movie with romantic comedy in it, whichever way you want to look at it.







…plus Simon Pegg is hell-a cool
