Paul  2011 sci-fi film

Running time: 100 minutes

Language: English

Two British comic fans are taking trip of their lifeto America - after visiting ComicCon they rent a camper and drive down the route where UFOs where seen in southern states. While passing by Area 51 they collide with a car and few moments later they are standing face to face with an alien. But despite his typical look he is not typical alien - he speaks English, well swears at least, knows more about human life than can be expected ans is not interested in probing people through their anus or otherwise. He said his name is Paul and that he has escaped from secret laboratory where the American government kept him last 50 years. Soon the secret agents are after him and the two nerds aredetermined to help him.

Another scifi comedy from duo Pegg-Frost is story of stereotypical geeks thst accidentally stumble upon a real alien, who is more human than they could have expected. Unfortunately just like in case of other Pegg-Frost films this one is also not very successful. On one hand we have interesting plot that could have easily created many funny moments, but on the other hand many of those opportunities where wasted and the final effect is rather disappointing.
