Paul is the 3rd theatrical collaboration between Simon Pegg & Nick Frost following Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz (both of which succeeded their tv series Spaced). It's a story about two British sci-fi nerds who are on a trip of a lifetime as they road trip their way across America visiting infamous alien hotspots. Along the way they cross paths with an actual alien, Paul, who has been assimilating into American culture for the past 60 years. This movie is a love letter to all of those geeky fanboys and UFO freaks out there. Packed with in jokes and cameos Paul is a hilarious movie that nods to just about every alien movie made. Sadly Edgar Wright who directed Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz was committed to filming Scott Pilgrim and so he is absent from this one. And while it's been handled well by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) I think it would have had an entirely different feel and chemistry had Wright been on board. Nevertheless a great in-joke film with loads of laughs.
