Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, in my opinion, have the potential to be the next great comedy duo. They're laugh out loud funny in some of their earlier films such as "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz". Naturally, most Pegg/Frost fans were excited for the news of their newest feature, "Paul". Two of the actors I can't stand most were in this film, Seth Rogen and Jane Lynch. The least I can see those two on the screen, the better. Paul is too much like the actual person Seth Rogen in the film. He didn't voice the alien, it's just like him in every other film I've seen him in. That's why the film doesn't work in my opinion.
I was less than enthused with half of the film and when Ruth (Wiig) comes into the film, I lose more interest. But why? Not sure. I love Kristen Wiig and the others in the film such as Bill Hader. Of course, Jason Bateman is a good actor as well. Could it be Edgar Wright? Possibly. Either way there's a gaping whole left from the comedy of "Hot Fuzz" to "Paul". If you like Seth Rogen, you'll probably like this film. If you like depth and the usual of comedy of Frost/Pegg, this film leaves a whole in your chest.
