Hot Fuzz – Killing Refrigerator Magnates With Comedy

hot fuzz posterFrom the makers of “Shaun of the Dead” comes this weekend’s hot buzz movie release “Hot Fuzz”.

In a parody of American cop movies “Bad Boys”, the posters for this movie read “They’re bad boys. They’re die hards. They’re lethal weapons. They are… HOT FUZZ”.

What on EARTH does this movie have to do with kitchen or home appliances? Cereal murder, maybe? Nah.

Apparently one of the victims is a “refrigerator magnate”.

Which got me thinking… in what movies or TV shows have home appliances played a prominent role, or at least a funny line?

I’ll start this off…

  • Lilo & Stitch:
    Nani: You are so finished when I get in there! I’m gonna stuff you in the blender, push “puree,” then bake you into a pie and feed it to the social worker! And when he says, “Mmmm, this is great, what’s your secret?” I’m gonna say…
    [Mr. Bubbles hooks his foot around hers and pulls her away from the dog-door]
    Nani: …Love… and… nurturing…
  • ALF:
    Alf: The cat won’t fit in the toaster. Never mind, I’ll make a peanut butter sandwich, where’s the blender?
  • The Simpsons
    Marge Simpson:
    Ooh, the toaster takes bagels. How ritzy.
  • Kate & Leopold
    Leopold: Why is it called a toaster when it produces no toast, but simply warm bread, and inserting it two times produces charcoal? The ideal toaster would have one and a half insertions to produce the correct toast.
