Good friends are hard to come by, so when you spot one in a movie, you can't help but to dream -- even when that potential pal is not of this world. On March 18th, we're going to meet Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen), an alien who crash lands on Earth, is held prisoner by the government and decides now is the time to escape. That's when Paul meets Graeme and Clive (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), two nerdy guys on their way to check out Area 51. The little gray guy has his own Predator mode, enjoys Reese's Pieces, has an endless supply of wisecracks and even manages to wiggle his way into his new friends' hearts so much so that they're willing to do whatever it takes to get Paul home.

They're fun, loyal and out-of-this-world. Who wouldn't want to have an alien as friend? Well, odds are, it isn't happening, but there's certainly no harm in dreaming. Should my extra terrestrial pal ever beam him or herself down to Earth, I'm hoping he or she would be something like one of these unearthly movie characters.
