I have to say i didn't expect to like this movie, THAT much! It was really amazing!
I haven't watched the duo, Pegg and Frost, in another movies (though i know Johnny loves them) but they were awesome!! They work so good together. Amazing connection which bring into the movie.
So this awesome duo, they travel around US after Comic-Con to see some alien places like Area 51, the Black Box,etc. And they found an alien. THE alien. Paul is the most alien ever. He is so extremely funny and i love how he is "well i'm an alien.what did you expect?" and he doesn't even care! As they try to help him, more people get in the game and the whole is becoming a bit of a mess (some explosions, some car hunting).
The movie is hilarious. If you especially, have watched many alien movies (too bad for Athanasia it has some Star Wars references), you will like it even more. It jokes about some really famous ones like E.T. Nice surprise was at the end, Sigourney Weaver who was also starred at the "Alien" movies.
If you are religious it might offend you a little, since it has some God issues in it (like evolution) and you probably better don't watch it with your kids since there is some swearing in as well.
If you are the "sheldon" type with love of sci fi and comics you will love it. Rest people will love it too, but they might not get all the secret jokes in, no that is a particular problem.
Not my fault the cast list is so huge! And those are the ones i recognized while watching.... Dunno if i missed anyone.
