Paul, Movie Review

For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul 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 and Clive Gollings. 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 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.

Cast: Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), Jeffrey Tambor (Hangover), Jane Lynch (Glee, Role Models), David Koechner (Get Smart), Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights), Seth Rogen (Superbad, Green Hornet), Jason Bateman (Juno, The Switch), Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Avatar), Bill Hader (SNL), Joey Lo Truglio (Superbad, Role Models),Kristen Wiig (SNL, How To Train Your Dragon), John Carroll Lynch (Shutter Island), Blythe Danner (Meet The Fockers), Steven Spielberg (well you know him :P), Mia Stallard (The Spy Next Door).
