Remember E.T.? Sure, you do.. Who could forget that loveable little alien? With his beautiful glowing heart, who befriended a little boy while trying to “phone home”?
Well, F$#! him!
That was 1982. This is 2011 and now movie audiences can meet Paul. He is not your mommy and daddy’s E.T. because you will not be falling in love with this cute little alien, but he’ll get you laughing.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for another comedy. Their first two, “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” were great comic parodies, “Paul” is about two sci-fi geeks from Britain (Pegg and Frost) who come to America to attend Comic-Con in San Diego and then go on a road trip to see the most popular UFO sights in America. On their travels they encounter a real alien who calls himself Paul (voiced by Seth Rogan). Paul is on the run from some government agents that include Joe Lo Truglie, Bill Hader and Jason Bateman.
