Video: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in PAUL!
Seems like Pegg and Frost have gone completely Hollywood in this new comedy. Check out that wig Pegg is wearing!?! Sure, some of the gags work. But not all of them. We never thought we’d see Simon Pegg doing a Home Alone style scream-take.
Yikes, that was painful to watch. In short, this is very weak tea after the wonder of “Spaced“, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz. Pegg has built up quite a bit of good will with audiences because of those movies. He can get away with a movie or two like this. But not too many.
