Editorial Reviews

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) reunite as sci-fi geeks taking a pilgrimage to America's UFO heartland. There they meet a smart-ass alien, Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen), who takes them on an insane road trip. As they struggle to return Paul home, the little green man might just take the outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close Encounters of the Pegg/Rogen Kind March 20, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I was a bit hesitant about seeing Paul from the critical reviews and from the trailer, but found myself enjoying it quite a bit when I took a chance and saw it. There's a lot to see in Paul, and much like Galaxy Quest (1999), Paul both mocks its subject matter while at the same time treating it with both understanding and great affection. A lot of talent went into Paul and it shows. Directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland, TV's Arrested Development) and written by Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, TV's Spaced) and Nick Frost, Paul hits all the right comic notes, skewering its target audience knowingly and lovingly.

What makes Paul work is that, at its heart, it's the ultimate scifi road trip. Graeme (Simon Pegg) and Clive (Nick Frost), two major scifi/comics/UFOs fanboys from the UK, are visiting the US on a pilgrimage of sorts, hitting the biggest scifi/comics/gaming convention on the West Coast and making the grand tour of all the famous UFO-lore sites (Area 51, Roswell, 'The Black Mailbox', etc) in a huge honkin' RV. While on the road out in the desert, they witness a car spin out of control and crash. When they hurry to see if they can help, they come face to face with the classic little green alien with huge head and enormous oval eyes. Except that he's smoking a cigarette, introduces himself as 'Paul', and talks like Seth Rogen (mainly because he's voiced by Seth Rogen, absolutely the perfect choice for this role). Paul tells Graeme (Clive's fainted) of his need to escape the government people coming after him and the road trip is on.

The cast is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heads up on this one June 4, 2011
Format:DVD
So heads up
If your christian faith in god is so weak that you cannot handle a computer generated alien making jokes and presenting logical facts regarding your faith and its almost complete lack of science.... this movie is not for you.

If you cant handle a smart ass little alien who drinks, smokes dope, and tells dirty jokes...this movie is not for you.

If you have no humor at all and find things in a "comedy" offensive...this movie is not for you

if you find two gross British nerds taking the trip of a lifetime and doing what they love un funny or offensive...this movie is not for you

If you find large explosions or the men in black overly scary and offensive... this movie is not for you.

However,
If you enjoy crude humor, atheist overtones, large explosions, smoking dope, telling dirty jokes AND some nerdtastic adventures... this movie is for you.
I went into this flick not expecting much but I left happy and I cant wait to buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Fuzz and E.T. had a baby and its head popped off! February 22, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
As of writing, this film isn't out in Canada, however a CAM version of the UK release is out, so I am reviewing it based on the version I saw.

When it comes to Brit comedy, nobody does it quite like the Frost/Pegg duo. Both are phenomenal actors and seeing them on screen is a charm. So when I saw the trailer for "Paul" with The Green Hornet,, I must say I was very excited. And I must say, the film didn't disappoint. Is it quite on the same level as the Blood and Ice Cream movies? Definitely not, but it's a great piece of brain popcorn and I believe you will definitely love it.

This movie is basically the plot of E.T. with the humour of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, and it works! Of course you can't go wrong with that combination. Although Edgar Wright didn't direct the film, and the film feels very different from the mentioned two, this film actually manages to have the same level of charm and entertainment as those two. Also, the film has a wide range of good actors- including Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch, and even David Koechner!

Two British nerds, Graeme and Clive, are on a road trip across the US, which they have been dreaming of as kids. They've been dreaming of this as kids, and the highlight so far has been Comic Con San Diego. They
even have met Adam Shadowchild. One night, while in Area 51, Nevada, they witness a car crash, and come across the foul-mouthed alien slacker Paul. But this ain't no District 9 or E.T. Paul is, as mentioned above, is a slacker, and a loud/foul mouth. He is being chased by US government agents, and Graeme and Clive have no choice but
to take them with him. Along the way, they pick up a religious chick, an old lady who was wronged by Paul, and it all becomes one wacky and zany adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love these guys August 23, 2011
By AngieH
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love this movie, the witty, dry, silly comedy from Hot Fuzz and Shawn of the Dead were back in full force. A great no brainer movie with a lot of heart, just like summer movies should be. Although I agree that if you are offended by movies that question religion, steer clear of this one.

Format:DVD
What had happened was, I got spoiled by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright's three prior screen excursions. Spaced: The Complete Series, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz [Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy] all featured characters who - no matter how bizarre the stuff going on around them was - were likable enough and believable enough that you got invested in them. SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ were this trio's take on, respectively, the zombie sub-genre and the cop buddy film. The TV show, SPACED, was their nerdgasmic homage to pop culture. With PAUL (but without Wright), Pegg and Frost take on the sci-fi genre and fail to soar. I'm rating PAUL a better than average 3 out of 5 stars. I liked it. I didn't love it. PAUL doesn't have the smarts of their other collaborations. Or the brilliant, irrepressible sense of humor.

Clive Gollings (Frost) and Graeme Willy (Pegg) are two affable Brits who've crossed the waters on holiday. The film opens with their having a grand time of it at the San Diego Comic Con, after which they embark, via RV, on a leisurely road trip with pit stops to various UFO landmarks along America's heartland. Life imitates nerdy wishful thinking when, one evening, Clive and Graeme stumble onto Paul, a little green extraterrestrial what had done a bunk from a top secret government facility, wherein he had been kept prisoner for the past sixty years. And them relentless government agents are in hot pursuit. Paul doesn't want to probe anyone as much as he desperately wants off this God's little rock.

Agree with you completely. Amazon will probably drop the price on both of these on Wednesday or Thursday. This will let them avoid automatically price matching on your pre-order so a lot of people would not bother calling to argue for a few extra bucks.
