While paying homage to E.T. and Close Encounters, they accidentally re-made Howard The Duck.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
Full Review | 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.
