This film was written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead fame. The film's writers also star as the two main characters, Graeme and Clive, a nerdy duo attending the San Diego Comic Con who decide to take thier love of comics and science fiction a step further by going to explore Area 51.
They meet up with Paul, a freindly and sarcastic alien (voiced by Seth Rogen). Needless to say, they end up on the run from some government officials. This film is a predictable but entertaining trip to the movies that spoofs classic science fiction films such as E.T. and Star Trek as a salute to geeks everywhere! Grade B-.
