Micro Review: Paul

Not the comedic classic that Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz became, but still a damn funny way to spend a couple of hours. We can thank Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for that because the minds behind the previously mentioned gems wrote and star in this sci-fi comedy about a couple of movie geeks who meet an alien. Seth Rogen lends his voice to Paul, and is a perfect third party to Pegg and Frost's buddy duo. Throw in Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader and Sigourney Weaver and you've got a dream cast that works the fun, breezy script for all it's worth. Lots of great in-jokes for movie fans. This is Good stuff indeed, but not on the level of the duo's other work. PS: go with the unrated version. It's got some amazing profanity in it!
