me and my eldest were so looking forwards to watching this and was disappointed it was a 15 and wondered why as could not take the younger ones to the cinema so we had to wait for the dvd. the reason became apparent as to the 15 cert after watching it, for the endless swearing which starts to get on your nerves after a while and just spoils it towards the end. not a patch on their previous films and spaced which are just fantastic. Pegg and Frost are great in it and funny, but the other characters, especially paul just are not, i would go as far as to say that paul is actually an annoying character. the boys gave a great performance as usual, but the swearing and the paul character didnt cut it for me and i had actually lost interest in it towards the end. was expecting so much more, shame really as i love pegg and frost!

For a start, you either love Simon Pegg and Nick Frost or you don't. This is the third film in the planned trilogy of films, coming after Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. And this is very, very funny.

Basic premise, without spoiling anything, the two main leads are science fiction 'geeks' who have gone to a convention in America. They have seemingly been interested in Aliens (talking and even writing related comic books) for years and years. While driving across country in a rented mobile home, they witness a car mysteriously flip and crash, for no apparent reason.

They then meet Paul - an alien, who is on the run from a Government camp intent on conducting experiments on him - and just wants to go home.

If I give you more details on the story, I will spoil it and I don't want to do that. Suffice to say, they encounter obstacles along the way, pick up an extra passenger by accident - who adds a lot of comedy to the film - and are being chased by rogue police officers. Let's face it, in every film like this, you need the bad people and the element of threat.

If you love these two, and find their humour hilarious, as I do, then my advice is to get this film. You will love it! And it's quite cheap now too, so one for the collection!

  Very Average.

Paul (2011) is a sci-fi comedy starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and the voice of Seth Rogen.

The main problem with this movie is that it is decidedly average on all fronts. The comedy is only slightly amusing, the action is only a little bit exciting and the cast are all very funny actors who can do so much better.

The best thing about this movie is that the special effects used to create the alien are very good and the voice of Seth Rogen adds a lovable charm to the character.

Director Greg Mottola (Superbad) does a decent enough job but never finds a way to make the movie anything other then very average.

Aside from a couple of funny geek humour moments this movie is sadly disappointing and quite forgettable. The action and the comedy are just not good enough.

brilliant movie comes across how Pegg and Frost are big scifi geeks all the movie references a real laugh out loud movie was a bit put off when i found out who voiced Paul! But it turns out it's his face that annoys because i enjoyed his performance in Paul! highly recommend the movie to anyone with a sense of humour!

Love these 2 together though for some reason they are getting tiresome. Paul was fun, not a keeper in my book but definitely worth a watch.

  Sorry guys - you've lost the plot (perhaps its in Area 51)

I hate to give a bad review but having viewed this movie I failed to find it funny its way way below Hot Fuzz and as such was a big disappointment given the subject matter I was expected so much more
