Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had, as this trailer suggests that their long hair totally kills their comedic strength. The cast alone should make Paul can’t-miss funny, with Jason Bateman, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, and Bill Hader all in supporting roles.
Instead, we are left what appears to be something of a generic children’s romp save for the gratuitous use of f-bombs. Also, if they referenced the alien’s genitals one more time, they would have to call the movie Paul’s Balls, which would just be horrible. Unless we’re missing a big component of the film (which I doubt, considering this is the third trailer), this will be a big step backwards for Pegg, Frost, director Greg Mottola, and possibly the comedy films in general. Just kidding about that last one, but this film doesn’t look great. (IGN)
