18 Movies Like Paul

The characters Graeme Willy (played by Simon Pegg) and Clive Gollings (played by Nick Frost) are lifelong friends from the United Kingdom who share a passion for comic books and science fiction and go to the United States to attend the annual San Diego Comic-Con. On a desert roadway in the middle of the night, the two set out on a journey through the southwestern part of the United States to visit several UFO locations. They had just gotten out of an encounter with some homophobic rednecks at a cafe when they saw a car driving recklessly before it crashed. They pull over to offer the motorist, who turns out to be an extraterrestrial being named Paul, some assistance. Despite the fact that Clive passed out at seeing Paul and wet his trousers, Graeme offers to give Paul a ride.

Later on, Special Agent Zoil of the Secret Service, played by Jason Bateman, arrives at the scene of the automobile crash and reports to his unnamed female supervisor, “the Big Guy,” that he is getting closer and closer to finding Paul. She delegated the assistance to the inexperienced Haggard and O’Reilly. Clive continues to harbour suspicions regarding Paul’s motivations, believing that his appearance is proof of a plot, until Paul reveals that the government has been feeding his image to the public in order to prevent people from becoming alarmed in the event that they come into contact with members of his race. They eventually set up camp at a recreational vehicle park that is operated by a pair of Christian fundamentalists, played by Kristen Wiig’s character, Ruth Buggs, and her father, Moses. The following day, upon seeing Paul, Ruth passes out, and so they had to take her with them. In the middle of an argument, Paul gets Ruth to reconsider her ideas and then uses his healing power to give her sight back in her blind eye.
