I also loved Reno 911!: Miami

Good to know someone else liked it (though it's probably nowhere near my top 10).

It's in my top 10, I found it hilarious from stem to stern, but I am a huge fan of the show and their type of dry humor, so I am a bit biased.

This is a standout year. I think that every year there are new films is a good year in cinema, but this one is special.

There Will Be Blood, with Zodiac and Hot Fuzz and Jesse James and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly tied for second place.

There's one shot that totally makes it for me: that pan across all the hotel rooms.

Yeah, this movie is hilarious, but not as good as Hot Fuzz.

An unoriginal choice, but I really liked There Will Be Blood.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

I loved Hot Fuzz as well, I'd put it and Reno on the same level for me hilarity wise and enjoyment wise.

Luckily everybody else knows that you are crazy and There Will Be Blood won the Filmspot last year.
