​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

PAUL (2011)










#60 on the big ol' 2016 movie countdown is 2011's Paul. Two British comic book nerds (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) travel to San Diego for ComicCon and then make a side trip to tour Area 51. Driving through the desert late at night, they encounter a car accident and find the auto was being driven by - an alien! Well, an alien wearing Bermuda shorts with the voice of Seth Rogen. They decide to help Paul the alien (his name) get to where he needs to get to, while picking up a... religious zealot (Kristine Wigg) along the way, not to mention being pursued by FBI agents wearing all black led by Jason Bateman. It's amusing and I always love watching Pegg and Frost together but the FBI stuff gets too slapsticky and Paul peters out a little bit before it wraps up. But you could do worse.

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS? Well it's no Shaun of the Dead but it has its moments.
