Chris’s review published on Letterboxd:
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are fish out of water, British geeks on a holiday in the USA. Not a spoiler to disclose they meet an alien, voiced by Seth Rogan, on their roap trip.
Fun without being funny. The repetition of jokes is a tad lazy.There is some culture clash comedy but it's very on the nose.
Amounts to a collection of nods to better sci-fi, including Close Encounters, ET, Back to the Future, Total Recall, Star Wars, The X-Files, and even Superbad and The Blues Brothers.
