I said: Knock knock!
Paul is a foolish and fun movie about two British sci-fi geeks who meet up with a little green alien named Paul while on a Winnebago road trip across the US. Paul is on the run from some men in black and needs to hurry up so he can meet with his mother ship that’s scheduled to pick him up in a few days. The movie is plastered with science fiction references (many which I didn’t get), and it’s entertaining trying to spot them even if they don’t all make for hilarious jokes. If you’re a sci-fi geek who doesn’t take any of it too seriously, it’s a good time. The movie isn’t wall-to-wall jokes, and most of the laughs aren’t the laugh out loud kind. But it doesn’t matter because characters are likeable, and every scene is a different adventure and it’s fun.
Hmph. That trailer makes it seem dumber than it is.
Here’s a funny and brilliant segment from Sesame Street:
It made me laugh, anyway.
I took a stab at making beer can BBQ chicken last weekend. Here’s the dancing chicken sitting on the grill with a beer can up its butt:
And then the final product with a dash of Napalm:
I was supposed to drink half the beer in the can before sticking it on the grill, which I didn’t do. The chicken was crispy but still not too bad.
