Get Him to the Greek

A comedy about an ambitious 24-year-old intern, Aaron (Jonah Hill),  who has been given a career-making assignment. His mission: fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio (Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs), gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril.”

British rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand, reprising his character from Forgetting Sarah Marsall) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of 'yes men' and scared he’s entered the 'greatest hits' moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral...

Get Him to the Greek displays the bawdy-sweet mixture that is the signature of the Judd Apatow school of screen comedy.

Under the cover of slapstick, cheap laughs, raunchy humor, gross-out physical comedy and sheer exploitation, Get Him to the Greek also is fundamentally a sound movie.

The seriously out-of-control hard R dude is writer-director Nicholas Stoller, who apparently has major trust issues with his odd-couple stars, women and the audience. Did I forget anybody?

Never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.

British comedian Russell Brand, as the gregarious, lizard-hipped, sexaholic rocker Aldous Snow, stole the show so thoroughly in his big Hollywood debut, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that they simply had to give him his own movie to run away with.
