Two british comic-book geeks traveling across the U.S. Encounter an alien outside area 51.

"Smashing fun!  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Irreverent and hilarious!  Sean P. Means, The Salt Lake Tribune

Editor's Note
Two average sci-fi geeks get caught up in the ultimate interplanetary adventure after picking up an extraterrestrial during a road trip to Area 51 and becoming the targets of a nationwide manhunt. Graeme (Simon Pegg) and Clive (Nick Frost) are two British sci-fi geeks on holiday in America. After a trip to Comic-Con to meet their favorite author, Adam Shadowchild (Jeffrey Tambor), Graeme and Clive load up their RV and hit the road for a tour of some of the most famous UFO hotspots in the American Southwest. They know we're not alone in the universe, but they won't be satisfied until they get a firsthand glimpse of the famed Area 51. However, somewhere deep in the Nevada desert, the two UFO enthusiasts narrowly avoid crashing into a speeding car when they happen across a most unlikely hitchhiker. Paul (voice of Seth Rogan) is a pint-sized alien who has spent the last 60 years in Area 51. He's been cooped up in the care of the U.S. Government for far too long, and he's starting to get a little homesick. Though Graeme and Clive are more than willing to help their wisecracking new friend get back to his mother ship, Special Agent Zoil (Jason Bateman) of the FBI is closing in fast. And he's not the only one; in their race to get their new friend home, Graeme and Clive have also become unwitting kidnappers, and the enraged father of their not-so-unwilling captive, Ruth (Kristen Wiig), is determined to rescue his daughter at all costs. Sigourney Weaver, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and David Koechner co-star.

Professional Reviews

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a a sci-fi flick, but it's also a heartfelt tribute to Spielberg, something that reaches its crescendo in a plate-spinning final showdown that is action-paced, funny and unexpectedly moving." 03/01/2011

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 - "Briskly directed by Greg Mottola....[Paul] blends neatly with the landscape and co-stars..." 04/01/2011

Uncut
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] slacker bromance....The addition of Jason Bateman and Bill Hader as Men In Black on their trail, Kristen Wiig as a partially sighted Christian and Seth Rogen as the 'voice' of Paul add something new." 04/01/2011

Los Angeles Times
"[A] sort of fractured E.T., with Seth Rogen never more likeable than as the bald-headed extraterrestrial who just wants to phone home..." 03/18/2011

USA Today
"Where Paul takes off is in its embrace and knowledge of sci-fi-icons....The creatures movements, facial expressions and interactions with human co-stars are seamless." 03/18/2011

Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] inspired, hysterical, spot-on spoof....[With a] sharp-tongued central character and many witty references to popular sci-fi flicks." 03/18/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"[A] sweetly daft spaceman comedy....The filmmakers offer ups a spot-on cartoon of types we've loved in dozens of other movies..." -- Grade: B 03/25/2011

Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] cheeky spoof that puts a hilarious hurt to everything it loves....Rogen is a nonstop hoot, but it's the byplay between Frost and Pegg that roots the laughs in characters we care about." 03/31/2011

The Onion A.V. Club 8 of 10
Paul is more slapdash than Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, but it shares many of those film's virtues and underlying sweetness, though the alien sometimes comes off as a Poochie-like exemplar of in-your-face attitude. Yet by the time it reaches an appropriately epic conclusion, the film has earned its laughs as well as its big dramatic moments. Paul is a little sloppy and a little sappy, but the filmmakers' passion for their subject matter carries it over the occasional rough spot. - Nathan Rabin
