Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has starred in a handful of the smartest comedies this past decade and with director Greg Mottola at the helm (Superbad, Adventureland) it would seem like a safe comedy bet. Especially because the supporting cast of this alien road trip movie is rounded out with Jason Bateman, Kristin Wiig, Jane Lynch, Bill Hader and Jeffrey Tambor.
And yet. And yet. This seems overly broad and the alien design (voiced by Seth Rogen) looks like the cg was done by my shortbus-riding seven-year-old brother (I don’t have one). I could probably get behind this more if the alien in question was a midget in a suit and resembled E.T. [via Slashfilm]
