This is a soft comedy, and by soft I mean it doesn’t have sharp edges. Everything blends well together. It’s geekery about geeks, for geeks. And that’s cool. It inspires chuckles not loud laughter, which is not necessarily bad, but there was potential for more. Even so, wide-eyed Paul has its own place in the gallery of friendly peaceful aliens, just like K. Wiig has hers among the best (female) comedians… probably ever 😀
It won’t give you nightmares 🙂
It doesn’t have enough “cement” to secure a lasting memory.
Would I see it again? – Yes, someday
My Rating (1 to 10): 7.5
Don’t go around saying “Hi, I’m Paul” – people might faint. Especially if you’re an alien 😀
