    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Rogen is a nonstop hoot, but it's the byplay between Frost and Pegg that roots the laughs in characters we care about. That's right: characters. No anal probes. show more

    Where Paul takes off is in its embrace and knowledge of sci-fi icons. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    A big fat geek kiss to the movies of Steven Spielberg and his fanboys, Paul is a mild, meandering comedy. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A decent comedy, good-natured if unspecial, amusing if rarely hilarious. show more

    Ray Bennett The Hollywood Reporter

    Affectionate, funny and action-packed sci-fi spoof. show more

    Fortunately, the movie is studded with performances that demonstrate the cast's skills, such as Kristen Wiig's soggy white-bread delusional Christian Ruth. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    Bateman has rarely had the opportunity to play a snarling lawman, but with his cool aviators and his bristling putdowns he's perfect, too. show more

    I thought this movie was pretty funny; watched it several times after the first time. I have seen all of seth rogans movies before and a big fan of it. So, I knew what type of genre and humor this movie was going to be. Plus, a big fan of simon pegg and nick frost. If you like seth rogan, simon pegg and nick frost, then you wont be disappoint to see this movie. A modern ET movie lol

    Saw it in theaters. I love aliens, UFOs, etc. so I was really excited to see this. I was so disappointed I almost walked out of the theater. I managed to sit through to the end just for the free refill on popcorn. What a letdown! Dumbest movie I\'ve seen since I can\'t even remember when. Two thumbs DOWN!

    I saw the movie at the theater. I had relatively low expectations going in but I was very pleasantly surprised. I thought the storyline was pretty good. There were some classic scenes and even better lines. A bit slow at times but I really liked it. I was afraid that Seth Rogen was going to be too over the top like in all his other movies but he plays Paul really well. There are some ROFL moments. Very likeable. So much better than most of the recent releases.
