Las Vegas Weekly
16 March 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s something oddly dispiriting about the basic comic premise of Paul , which amounts to this: What if an extraterrestrial actually did crash-land on Earth back in the late 1940s, as the UFO nuts claim?

  • Conclusion: Broader and more accessible than either Shaun Of The Dead or Hot Fuzz, Paul is pure Pegg and Frost - clever, cheeky and very, very funny. You'll never look at E. T. in the same way again.
