Paul (2011)

Paul

Director: Greg Mottola

Writers: Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

Not as strong as their work with Edgar Wright but still pretty funny.  I especially loved the storyline involved Kristen Wiig’s fundamentalist Christian character and how meeting an alien totally throws her whole belief system out of whack.  I love that they deal with the broader ramifications of alien visitors beyond will they love us or hurt us.  Kind of devolves into a reference-a-thon/fanboy-fest in the last act but it has a good cast and its heart in the right place.
