There are plenty of laugh out loud moments and Pegg’s bumbling English ‘I don’t understand the world’ character is out in full force.
Basically a group of aliens (voiced by the Monty Python team) give an ordinary guy the power to do anything he likes. And this is where the clever comedy comes from, setting up many great comedy moments.
By far the funniest scenes involve the heroes pet dog, who Pegg gives the power of speech. The dog is voiced superbly by the late, great, Robin Williams, who spills the beans on what dogs actually think of us humans.
Love interest comes in the form of Kate Beckinsale, I recommend this to any Pegg or ‘Paul’ fans or anyone who wants to see a funny movie.
