Editorial reviews

"Where Paul takes off is in its embrace and knowledge of sci-fi-icons....The creatures movements, facial expressions and interactions with human co-stars are seamless."
USA Today - Scott Bowles (03/18/2011)

3 stars out of 5 -- "A cheeky spoof that puts a hilarious hurt to everything it loves....Rogen is a nonstop hoot, but it's the byplay between Frost and Pegg that roots the laughs in characters we care about."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (03/31/2011)

"A sort of fractured E.T., with Seth Rogen never more likeable than as the bald-headed extraterrestrial who just wants to phone home..."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (03/18/2011)

"A sweetly daft spaceman comedy....The filmmakers offer ups a spot-on cartoon of types we've loved in dozens of other movies..." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (03/25/2011)

4 stars out of 5 -- "An inspired, hysterical, spot-on spoof....With a sharp-tongued central character and many witty references to popular sci-fi flicks."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (03/18/2011)

3 stars out of 5 -- "A slacker bromance....The addition of Jason Bateman and Bill Hader as Men In Black on their trail, Kristen Wiig as a partially sighted Christian and Seth Rogen as the 'voice' of Paul add something new."
Uncut - Michael Bonner (04/01/2011)

3 stars out of 5 - "Briskly directed by Greg Mottola....Paul blends neatly with the landscape and co-stars..."
Total Film - Kevin Harley (04/01/2011)

4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a a sci-fi flick, but it's also a heartfelt tribute to Spielberg, something that reaches its crescendo in a plate-spinning final showdown that is action-paced, funny and unexpectedly moving."
Empire - Chris Hewitt (03/01/2011)
