Wondering why times are missing?

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the duo behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, return for this shaggy stoner comedy about a nerdly duo who pick up an alien hitchhiker in the desert Southwest. The titular space alien (voiced by Seth Rogan) is the anti-E.T., smoking and drinking and cursing up a storm while trying to get home. There are plenty of in-jokes about Alien, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark and other sci-fi hallmarks, but the tone is uneven—toggling back and forth between silly slapstick and R-rated raunchiness. FULL REVIEW: These probably aren't the droids you're looking for by Benjamin Radford (3/17/2011). 104 minutes R.
