This movie is from the director of "Bend It Like Beckham". It is the Bollywood take on "Pride & Prejudice". If you want to get your feet wet with a Bollywood movie, but don't want the typical length and do not want to read subtitles, then this movie is a good way to start. It is an English production. In a way it pays homage to Bollywood movies, but at the same time it parodies them. The beginning for example it plays with the notion what would happen, if you take an American movie character and throw him into a Bollywood movie. The movie is also good introduction to the Indian way of life and customs, which you will encounter in a number of Bollywood movies. This movie has typical Bollywood song and dance numbers, but also typical Hollywood musical numbers. The female star of this movie is a big Bollywood actress. Also the actor who plays her father I have seen in a number of Bollywood productions.

From the director of Superbad, Greg Mottola, with a stellar supporting cast including Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Joe Lo Truglio Sigourney Weaver, PAUL is a must-own comedy adventure not to be missed!
Watched: 10th Jun 2011 My Thoughts: A fun, enjoyable comedy. As to be expected there were loads of references to other sci-fi films, I know I got some but probably missed quite a few as well. The best one for me was the classic line spoken by Lt. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) from Aliens - "Get away from her you bitch!" - used in this film against The Big Guy (Sigourney Weaver).
Star Trek 1.28 City on the Edge of Forever Writer: Harlen Ellison (Writer), Gene Roddenberry (Original Characters By) Director: Joseph Pevney Cast: William Shatner (Kirk), Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock), Joan Collins (Sister Edith Keeler), DeForest Kelley (Dr. McCoy), James Doohan (Scott), George Takei (Sulu), Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), John Harmon (Rodent), Hal Baylor (Policeman), David L. Ross (Galloway), John Winston (Transporter Chief), Bartell La Rue (Guardian Voice (voice))
Probably the best episode of the original Star Trek series. McCoy gets transported back in time to the 1930s, which changes the present dramatically. Kirk and Spock also travel back to prevent whatever McCoy did.
