Please avoid “Paul”, The Film.
I didn’t know Nick Frost. If I have already seen him somewhere he certainly didn’t do enough to impress himself in my memory. But I liked Simon Pegg after the exhilarating “hot fuzz” and the rather likeable (largely because of Megan Fox, I imagine) “How to lose friends etc”.
Well I must say I changed my mind about Pegg after seeing his last joke of a movie today. Besides being very lame and rather vulgar, “Paul” is distinctly, stupidly anti-Christian. I mean in a truly moronic way, with the two Christian characters one a drunkard idiot and one a young woman who, supposedly liberated from her superstition to embrace atheism, decides that she now wants to swear and fornicate and goes on saying rather infantile words for the rest of the movie. An eight-year-old would have been able to think something better than that.
As you have already imagined, Frost and Pegg are not only the protagonists, but the authors of the script too.
We live in a world where every idiot thinks he is an intellectual just because people laugh at what he says. On this occasion, though, I can assure you that the laughs at the anti-Christian jokes were few and far between and received with an embarrassed silence by most of the audience. The rest of the film wasn’t much better anyway, if you’ve seen the trailer you’ve seen the best already.
A bad movie written by morons who think that they have something to say just because they happen to be good comedians.
Do yourself a favour and avoid the dung of these infantile morons.
