Paul (comedy)
Paul is a comedy about two British science fiction geeks who travel to the U.S. to visit a scifi convention and visit places of UFO sightings. Along the way they encounter a real extra-terrestrial, who is being pursued by some government agency. It is written by and staring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg.

During the first part of the movie I was wondering if I'd make it to the end. A lot of the humor was not surprising, but decent enough to maintain the movie. At one point I thought the gross-out humor would wear on me, but I relaxed my expectation and just enjoyed the ride. It actually got better and better with some unexpected twists and turns. There was also a love story, action scenes, and some good tear-jerker moments. When it ended I had a smile on my face and felt good. So maybe that makes it an uplifting feel-good movie?

All in all, I'd say this is one of the best movies I've seen this year. I recommend it.
