I can be really brief here…what a shame!
I have been a huge fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for many years, but I’m afraid this one was just a let down for me. The concept is cute enough, but within the first few minutes I couldn’t really watch Pegg’s bizarre over-acting, coupled with the fact that they both just feel way too old to be playing these roles.
The set up is that a couple of comic book nerds on a road trip find themselves joined by a ‘real’ alien, who happens to have been on Earth for over 60 years, and have a filthy mouth.
There are a handful of amusing moments, but this is not Spaced territory, or Shawn Of The Dead, or Hot Fuzz…it is not Pegg and Frost on form. Pity.
