Paul Lands on Tuesday
In case you missed it in theatres, "Paul" is coming out on blu-ray Tuesday. This qualifies for its own blog post for two main reasons: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Pegg and Frost wrote this one and it was directed by "Superbad" director Greg Mottola. Seth Rogen voices "Paul." It's not quite "Shaun of the Dead" or "Hot Fuzz," but it's a must see if you enjoyed those.
In fact, when you're picking up "Paul," seek out the two seasons of "Spaced" while you're at it (on DVD and Hulu). It's the TV show that truly got Pegg, Frost and Edgar Wright (director of Shaun, Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim) noticed and it may be the funniest television show ever made. Really.
So, in celebration of the "Paul" release and the start of the weekend, here's my favorite Pegg and Frost bit ever. Happy Friday, kids!
