Review: Paul

Two nerds + one Foul mouthed alien = The best comedy of 2011 so far.

From the moment this film begins to when it ends, Paul is one big continual reference for every single Alien/Nerd/Trekky/Star Wars like movie ever created. If you hate anything involving any of the above than this movie may go right over your Football-loving-Sausage-eating head. Now for all of you who have seen Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz you can understand the whole concept of taking a genre and remixing it in a way that not only references but also creates it’s own. Paul goes down both roads very successfully, however the one (creating a standalone story) needs a bit of work.

Seth Rogen, as worried as every NERD was, is absolutely hilarious. His CGI-ness doesn’t miss a beat, mainly because he never stops talking. They chose quantity over quality, however there is enough in Paul’s rants to keep you going. With Paul’s introduction the film turns hard R. Before his appearance the film could have been a PG kids film until Seth Rogen blurts out the fuck word about 30 times a minute. Without this though, the movie, dare I say it, would have been fucked. The humor works only because it is foul mouthed and over the top. That combined with the feel of the film (over the top NERDGASIM) this film will please anyone who has even dabbled in something that would show at Comic Con. If that’s not you, Paul still offers enough fart and penis jokes to keep you going through your “collar” night out.
