As is often the case, the trailers for Paul don’t really do the movie justice.  I won’t try to claim that the movie–which stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and the voice of Seth Rogen as the titular alien–is some kind of classic, but it’s an entirely enjoyable sci-fi comedy that benefits from a good cast and a lot of heart.  I explain my warm feelings towards this movie further in my review, just posted at Film Journal.
