Hilarious start, lame finish.
Actually, fresh first 15, stale all the rest.
Even the extended guest list goes flat as if the director kept yelling - ok, be funny...NOW! And it
Didnt work at all.

Not sure where the magic ended exactly, but it delves into an unnecessary f-bomb fest, as if that's funny.
None of the usual funny ppl have an ounce of humor here - a head scratcher.
So much talent somehow completely wasted here - only Kristen Wiig gets a few chuckles about being high and hungry, but still a little stale.

Go see At Worlds End w Simon Pegg, and DO NOT read a thing about it.
I saw it on the big screen without any prior knowledge and it rocked my world.
Warning, lots of f-bombs, but played for laughs - unlike here.

I had big hopes and wanted to just enjoy it, but was confounded by its pedestrian pace and lackluster quote-unquote comedy.

Doesn't come close to the brilliance of 'Shaun of the Dead' or 'Hot Fuzz', but overall entertaining. Pegg and Frost are once again a hoot.

One must respect the Pegg / Frost Duo they are AWESOME -I generally prefere Brit-Comedy than US-Comedy
about Paul I must admit I liked him even though he felt more like a US citizen than an alien .... a new approach to Sci-Fi ... and as usual HILARIOUS

not up to par with other pegg/frost movies, but still quite entertaining.

Any pairing of Simon Peggy and Nick Frost is worth the price of admission alone. Combine that with a solid performance from Seth Rogan and the other ensemble cast, and you have a funny, crude sci-fi movie.

This has to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Great use of cuss words, quick laughs and Frost and Pegg make this movie the one you want to watch.

A bit funnier than the theatrical version. B+

a funny spoof on science fiction movies. Almost all the big box office hits get a turn. Plus a surprise cameo.

Classic! A must see for Star Wars and sci-fi fans who love comedy.

super funny, though not appropriate for persons under fifteen at least

The comedic chemistry between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost was great in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz and has continued on in Paul. I can and have watched this movie everyday for a week and haven't gotten tired of it.

Fantastic movie. I would have given it another half star had it not been for the ending. Blah! Still a good laugh. (Sorry, didn't see this is the unrated version. My comments are for the theatre version.)
