Movie Review: Paul

Frost, Pegg and Paul.
From the lovable team of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead,Hot Fuzz) comes Paul, a potty-mouthed, geek-themed bromance about two nerds on a road trip across the hallowed UFO-related landmarks of the American West.

This time the English duo has teamed with director Gregg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) and the vocal stylings of Seth Rogen as the titular Paul, the alien they pick up along the way. Though Paul was written by Frost and Pegg, you get the feeling Rogen and Mottola were definitely involved in the process merely for the copious amounts of pot smoking and gratuitous explosions peppered throughout this surprisingly likable flick.
