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.

Ebert Presents At The Movies

Paul starts strong with a lot of affectionate, funny jokes about geek culture, book signings, UFOs and comic book conventions, but it eventually falls into self-parody.

It's strange in that the best material seems to have been saved for the supporting cast members.

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.

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.

The hiccups of comedy genius feel like hollow victories in a generally average film.

Here's a movie that teeters on the edge of being really pretty good and loses its way.

What has happened to Pegg? Why does he mug so? Why can't he relax and let the audience come to him, rather than auditioning for our affection with every reaction shot?

Pegg and Frost shouldn't be wasting their combined talents on such disposable fare.

It all launches an E.T. riff that the two Brits would have mocked in their seminal TV series, Spaced.

It's C-minus work from people who normally deliver A-level efforts.

Having so much talent involved in making a comedy that's not particularly funny is quite disappointing.

Get a load of this: Paul smokes marijuana cigarettes, has jumbo-sized naughty bits and keeps making jokes about probing bums! Goodness gracious me. Pass the smelling salts, Aunt Jemima.

The film has some laughs. But it also has a million jokes about anal probes, alien genitalia, and people thinking Clive and Graeme are gay. These guys can do better than this.

The film's central idea isn't funny, really, at all. Neither is the plot, the dialogue, or most of the jokes.

It is not that Paul is in any way a bad movie. It is just a very average one.

Director Greg Mottola did not understand what makes a Simon Pegg comedy funny. And neither did Simon Pegg or co-writer Nick Frost.

A disappointment from start to finish, Greg Mottola's alien spoof comedy is dead on arrival.
