It's raunchy but harmless

We Got This Covered

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.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Passable f-bomb riddled fanboy fare, a bit of a comedown from Frost and Pegg's British movies.

Paul is probably the closest thing to Spaced that Pegg and Frost have made since Edgar Wright closed the book on Tim & Daisy.

Surprisingly smart and filled with homage, Paul is crass and a little rough around the edges, but thoroughly enjoyable.

... A very funny movie with its heart in the right place.

American Profile

A refreshingly rollicking, sweetly raunchy comedy about a little green dude just trying to get home.

Groucho Reviews

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.

It's not the comedy of the year, but it counts as a fun night out at the movies.

The Mercury

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.

The Standard

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.

The Age (Australia)

Passably funny, though one suspects even diehard sci-fi buffs will find the film's wall-to-wall pop referencing tiring and a tad lazy. Doesn't anybody write genuine jokes any more?

At the Movies (Australia)

This is a madcap ride with hilarious and occasionally touching references to many other films about aliens.

Paul Byrnes
Sydney Morning Herald

Paul isn't as riotous as the early Pegg and Frost movies, but it does have a certain sweetness. Everyone in it is sort of innocent, except Paul, the alien wisecracker. It's likeable, if uneven, rather than hilarious.

FILMINK (Australia)

That the film is an often hilarious love letter to other, better films is what prevents it from forging its own identity like Edgar Wright's mini-masterpieces.

Trespass

The film can be summed up by its affectionate parody E.T in the finale: amiable and inoffensive but completely inferior to the classic films it references.

Paul is a fun tribute to sci-fi films (and film geekery in general), but did it have to be so ... dumb?
