Paul is a Judd Apatow character mashed-up with 'E.T.' A slacker space alien who gets stuck on earth and needs to get home. Instead of finding good-hearted, impressionable children to help him, he gets two grown comic book geeks. Of course, hilarity ensues and most alien stereotypes are shattered.
In honor of 'Paul's' release this weekend, Moviefone has collected cinema's ten funniest aliens. Choosing these creatures is more difficult than you would think. There are more space comedies than you would think. It's odd because UFO nerds are constantly wondering whether aliens will be friendly or warlike, but you never hear anyone wondering if they'll be hilarious.
