Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.

New ‘Paul’ Trailer: Now With Comedy!
Thursday, January 6 by

I was a little let down when I saw the original UK trailer for Greg Mottola’s Paul. With all the poop jokes and nut shots, it felt a little too Kangaroo Jack for my tastes. But after viewing this domestic trailer, I’m looking forward.

Finally Get A Look At ‘Paul’ In New Teaser
Monday, October 18 by

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up in the past to take on horror and the action genre, now they've set their sights on sci-fi. As this teaser for Paul will show you, the pair play nuuurrrdddssss who encounter an alien outside of Area 51.
Not much comedy is shown in this teaser and I need to applaud Greg Mottola's restraint in not having the alien play air guitar or perform a Black Eyed Peas song. Because that's the constant temptation and danger with working with CGI characters. Before you even realize it, you've veered into Alvin and the Chipmunks territory.
Check out the teaser after the jump…

Greg Mottola to Study ‘Important Artifacts’
Tuesday, April 20 by

Just saying.Adventureland director and Turtle Club member Greg Mottola has been hired to write (and presumably direct) Paramount's adaptation of the overly-titled Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry. Mottola will turn the fictional estate auction catalogue from a dissolved relationship into a romantic comedy that has Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman attached to star. Jennifer Aniston is said to be working on a similar project, starring herself and a life-sized Brad Pitt Hairdoll. (THR)
