Though not classics by any stretch, writer/actor Simon Pegg's "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" skewered zombie flicks and cop/buddy action thrillers with sly tongue-in-cheek wit and a not-too-intellectual approach. Each was a combination lampoon/love letter to the respective genres and both were directed by Pegg's co-writer Edgar Wright.
