Best friends Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost) wander dumbstruck around the comic book and popular arts convention, Comic-Con.

They meet famous sci-fi author, Adam Shadowchild (Tambor), before embarking on a road trip across America, stopping at locations associated with alien contact including Area 51.

En route, Graeme and Clive encounter Paul (voiced by Rogen), a potty-mouthed alien stranded on earth, who is being hunted by mysterious special agent Zoil (Jason Bateman).

The pals agree to help Paul return home, abducting Ruth (Wiig), the one-eyed daughter of Bible-bashing trailer park owner Father Moses (Lynch), along the way.

Meanwhile, Zoil recruits two bungling FBI agents, Haggard (Hader) and O’Reilly (Truglio), to help in the hunt for the trio.
