Two British amateur ufologists Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Nick Frost) visit COMICON in the US. Then they are off to the UFO sites in the US. They have a close encounter with a maniac driver. Little did they know they were going to encounter Paul an, an area 51 escapee who just wants to go home. We go along for the ride. There we encounter several cultures on the journey.

I first saw the trailer for this movie on TV; the one where Paul brings the bird back to life and then does what comes naturally. That set the tone for the whole film. The film does offend prudes of all types with it British style of humor (however Universal City, CA) if not it would have let someone down. For me it was the excessive potty mouth. However being part of the aggregate it was probably necessary.

A nice side part of the film is that they make fun of or incorporate a tad of quit a few of the major sci-fi movies. Watching the extras we learn that they went out of the way to also incorporate filming stiles of some great movies.

For some sort on inexplicable reason I really enjoyed the film and it made me think of a lesser known film named Out There [VHS] (1995), of which I am still waiting for an official DVR transfer.

You know how most comedies today put all the best stuff in the trailers, and the movies are crap? Paul is the opposite. The trailers were not that great (Paul mooning out of a bus window) but the movie is so much better!

I've watched the different versions of Paul three times now in three weeks. It's that kind of movie. Every time you watch it, you see more stuff. Be it a laugh or an homage, this was an incredibly well written script with great performances from the stars and co-stars.

I've been getting kinda sick of Seth Rogen lately, but Paul succeeds both because of and in spite of him. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost wrote and starred in a great movie here. It succeeds in combining characters that you actually care about with outrageous situations. Throw in some damn fine sci-fi references and performances and now we're cooking.

It is a science fiction nerd's dream. Remember that "Homage-o-meter" that was on the DVDs of Spaced? You could do the same thing with Paul. From little bits of dialogue here and there ("Punch it!") to flat out homages (re-enacting the Kirk-Gorn fight on the same mountain) this movie is loaded with loving references to the best of the best of the best.

Paul crash landed on Earth in 1947 and just wants to get home, before the US government cuts out his brain to gain his powers. In the decades since, his image has been leaked out to us in the form of movies (great Speilberg voice cameo) so as to not shock us when contact is revealed. Paul has escaped and runs into our two heroes, straight on their way from Comic-Con.

Before too long, Paul, Clive and Graeme are on the run from the CIA with others complicating the mix. Two "hillbilly types" and a bible thumper all chase them for their own reasons.

"Paul" is a hilarious and quirky science fiction film about two comic book fanatics (Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings) that have an unexpected alien encounter that changes their life. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play characters that have come all the way from England to attend a Comic-Con event that is held in California. Naturally, they also want to explore other parts of America as well. During their road trip they accidently run into an alien that calls himself Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen). The movie starts out with some good humour, but the chances to laugh really increase once Paul persuasively convinces Graeme and Clive to take him to where he needs to go. Jason Bateman plays a scandalous but crafty government agent who is also determined to capture Paul for his own personal ulterior motives. "Paul" is a great movie to watch for those who enjoy films that contain elements of comedy and/or science fiction.
