2011 Comedy Movies - Paul
Of the comedy movies coming out this year, I am looking forward to this one a. because is stars the comedy duo Frost and Pegg (from Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) and 2. because I love Sci-fi comedy. I am a bit of a nerd.

This is a road movie comedy about 2 British sci-fi nerds who are on a road trip through America and encounter an alien called Paul, near area 51.
New Comedies of 2011 - Arthur Remake
Starring one of my favourite comedians Russell Brand this is a remake of the Dudley Moore 1981 romantic comedy movie. Also starring Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Helen Mirren and Nick Nolte and directed by Jason Winer. Release April 8, 2011.
With Russell Brand in the main role, as a drunken playboy who stands to lose a very large inheritance when he falls in love with a woman whom his family don’t approve of. And with Helen Mirren as is his helpful butler. Plus being written by Peter Baynham (writer of Borat and Alan Partridge) I have high hopes for this movie, and I’m interested to see how this one goes!
