I think you would need to immerse yourself in the episodes of Spaced that are available on DVD to get a feel for Simon Pegg's brand of humor. It doesn't always leap out at you.

I wouldn't really say that everyone loves the Dune movie, while some people do like it the general consensus does seem to be fairly similar to yours, that it doesn't really do justice to the book (although I think it does have some good bits in it).

Boy, am I relieved to read that. I hate this film with a passion. Apart from the fact that it's just not funny, there are a thousand low-grade zombie movies fom the 1980's that did the same thing - so it's not original either.
