Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) reunite for the comedy adventure Paul as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America's UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town-a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost). Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes...
I saw Paul when it first came out and thought it was great, it was fresh and unusual and extremely funny. I thought this film was better then Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but that's my opinion but I am sure most people will disagree. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has done another great film together and this time a lot more funnier (not depressing). In Paul they do have some of Americas greatest comedy actors that are sarcastic stupid but funny and in some ways mature funny and i think that's what has made this film so great and funny.
