Aspiring sci-fi author, Clive Gollings (Nick Frost) and his best friend/illustrator, Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) travel from London to San Diego to attend Comic Con. Afterward, they rent an rv to travel the southwest, visiting several “alien” hot spots.
Paul (Seth Rogen) is an alien on the run from “The Big Guy,” trying to get home. Graeme and Clive find themselves helping the wise-cracking alien evade the agents chasing him.
During their misadventures, they come across a couple of rednecks and a father and daughter who follow the Bible very closely.
You’ve seen a lot of the funny parts in the previews. What you haven’t seen is all the subtle nods to sci-fi movies that they’ve thrown in. Those are what make the movie for me.
