Also: produced by Edgar Wright.

"I'll bring her back safe, don't you worry... Hey, I understand you collect snow globes?"
"I don't like you."
"OK... well... See you, then."

"This is exactly how I imagined it. No one sticking their nose in. No one penetrating the mind. Take the noble English oak, Old Knobbley. That won't stab you in the back or belittle your five year plan. That tree won't... steal things that belong to you and put them in another place just to piss you off. That tree won't involve itself in low-level bullying that means you have to leave work."

"Dear Mum, I'm not coming home. Yorkshire is lovely. Not like you said at all. They can smile and they do sell my pasta sauce. The caravan bed is quite short, but Chris is a sensitive lover. Hope you can be happy for me. Love, Tina."

"I've never thought about murdering innocent people before."
"He's not a person. He's a Daily Mail reader."

"You didn't let him see you do number twos, did you Tina?"
"Never."
"Mystery, Tina, is a woman's sanctuary."

It's been years but I love this movie more than I probably should. And the ending is perfect.

I love this film. It gets very dark very quickly, yet is still extremely funny.

I had come to this movie through A Field in England and Kill List, and was a bit surprised by the tone. Still, I find it pretty funny.
