It's raunchy but harmless
| Original Score: 3.5/5
This is a nerd movie made by n00bs.
| Original Score: C
A sort of comedy homage to seminal sci-fi movie culture from the 80s, Paul never takes itself too seriously and is a lot of fun.
| Original Score: 7/10
Passable f-bomb riddled fanboy fare, a bit of a comedown from Frost and Pegg's British movies.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Paul is probably the closest thing to Spaced that Pegg and Frost have made since Edgar Wright closed the book on Tim & Daisy.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's not a bad film by any means, it was just slightly disappointing especially when you take into account the talents of Pegg and Frost.
Surprisingly smart and filled with homage, Paul is crass and a little rough around the edges, but thoroughly enjoyable.
| Original Score: 8/10
Vale mucho más la pena ver (o volver a ver) alguno de los antecedentes de la dupla Simon Pegg y Nick Frost, como Shaun of the dead, Hot fuzz o la serie Spaced.
| Original Score: 2/5
... A very funny movie with its heart in the right place.
| Original Score: B+
A refreshingly rollicking, sweetly raunchy comedy about a little green dude just trying to get home.
| Original Score: 3/5
The comic targets and the central manchildren bromance all feel overly familiar...Still, Paul benefits from Pegg and Frost's British comedic slant and the full complement of comedic talent... [Blu-ray]
Paul is slacker than the duo's previous efforts, but the gags still come thick and fast.
Pegg and Frost shoehorn in so many one-liners taken from other movies they're like embarrassing uncles at a wedding who have bet they can add a sci-fi twist to every conversation.
| Original Score: 5/10
It's not the comedy of the year, but it counts as a fun night out at the movies.
The poster is cute, the trailer cuter. "Paul" the movie? Don't ask.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two guys who know what they like and whenever they turn their hands to writing a script, you can feel that enthusiasm in every line.
Pegg and Frost have been better, but Paul is still good for a few laughs.
With so much reliable talent involved in this film it is extremely disappointing that it is only a mildly amusing comedy with a smattering of reasonably fun science-fiction references.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
While not as consistently funny or sharp as their previous pairings, Paul is a heartfelt tribute to friendship, what lies beyond the stars, and being a nerd.
It is not that Paul is in any way a bad movie. It is just a very average one.
