I'm not a big fan of toilet humour movies, or of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, so I assumed I'd hate this one. Maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much... no expectation. It's funny and a perfect Friday night movie. Not sure why other reviews aren't so favourable. I think the thing I liked about it the most was that it was different. There's so many movies out there, it's hard to find a unique concept, and I think this had it. Thumbs up.

That being said i adored the constant sci-fi references and Rogen didn't do that bad of a job as Paul. Oh and Bateman is spectacular as stoic as ever but that's... More why we love him.Hide

This is yet again another one of those films that throws most of its good sequences into its trailer which basically ruins the magic of the film.
The references to such classics as the 'ALIEN' franchise were hilarious.
The only reason the audience in my screening erupted in laughter together was because of Blythe Danner. Her 'My weed!' & 'Get away from her, you B*tch!' lines were... More great.
Worth the watch. But not worth buying.Hide

Hollywood BS for people that love lame American comedies ... and there's way too many of those to start naming them.
If you go to the movies once a year, chance is you'll like it ... but honestly don't bother paying $15, it'll be on tv soon enough and probably every year too.

Packed full of various fandom references, it's your classic buddy roadtrip flick, but with more of a nerd/dry British humour angle. There is a twist or two but nothing too unpredictable, and of course has a feel-good ending. Not much more to say other than if you're the sort of person who enjoys going to Armageddon or other similar conventions, this will probably appeal - otherwise a lot of the references will go over your head...

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are always going to be awesome together, 'Paul' being no exception! There were a heap of Sci-Fi references, like from 'Back To The Future' and all that, which made it awesome for all the nerds out there that are exactly like the MCs. I do prefer 'Shaun Of The Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' simply because the humour there is a lot more deadpan and dry, but 'Paul' was still very amusing, and I'd love to see it again to pick up more jokes :)

What I liked most was that Paul was more 'worldly' than the humans a lot of the time.
Seth Rogans voice was perfect for Paul and I was surprised that his character was believable and didn't jar at all. (How on earth do these actors act when one of the actors is virtual?!)
My 20 year old kids went to it... More after me and loved it even more.
Very much brain switch off material but far from mush.Hide
