Fresh: After the sharp bite and harsh light of most American-style guy-based funny films today, "Paul" comes as such sweet relief.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, March 17, 2011
Fresh: The CGI alien is very well articulated, and Rogen is a virtuoso at mixing motormouthed rudeness with a hint of tenderness to take off the edge.
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine, Monday, March 21, 2011
Fresh: While Frost is particularly well-cast, most of the actors seem to be having fun. You will, too, as long as you arrive with lowered expectations.

With an all-star cast including: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Sigourney Weaver, and many, many more, you cannot go wrong with this amazingly clever road trip/extra-terrestrial film! Paul is a comedy rip-off of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and pays tribute to all great sci-fi films as the movie progresses. Throwing in original comedy for a change, Paul is a fantastic laugh piece that I will remember for years to come. This may quite possibly be the best film of this short year, which is funny, because comedy it sort of stealing the show in 2011 at the moment. Paul is rip-roaring fun and everyone should see it!

Seth Rogen brilliantly brings life to the CGI alien character with plenty of enthusiasm. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost also play their roles very well, bringing light heartedness to the dark, aggresive alien character making this an exciting hysterical film. However, it is not Simon and Nick's best work as I fell their was a slight "americanisation! to its plotline despite the mentioning of "tea" in britian.
