Get Him to the Greek review

FilmCrave
11 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Aldous Snow's (Russell Brand) career is on the decline. Head of Pinnacle Records Sergio Roma (P. Diddy) is searching for fresh ideas to improve revenue. Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) suggests on getting Snow to play at the L.A.'s Greek Theatre. Direction was MTV like though the cameo's, utilizing pop culture resources were intuitive. The flick obviously had a killer soundtrack and laughable original songs for the rock star.

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this movie. The cast is likable and Hill and Brand have great charisma together. Try as I might, though, I didn't laugh nearly as hard as at Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the film had a "forced sequel" quality to it, as if the director felt the need to up the ante by injecting more sex, drugs, and mayhem.

  • Summary: I enjoyed this about as much as I expected. If you enjoyed Forgetting Sarah Marshall, this is more of the same - raunchy humor, lessons learned and Jonah Hill and Russell Brand doing their things. Actually, I think Sean Combs had the best time - it's a lot of fun, but doesn't leave a huge lasting impression.

A film of two halves

  • Summary: The comedy films of writer/producer/director Judd Apatow have somewhat dominated the last eight years or so. As well as being commercial hits, they have been lauded by critics for their sweet approach to comedy, blended with gross-out aspects and genuinely good scriptwriting. Apart from his best works - The 40-Year Old Virgin, Superbad, Knocked Up - his films can often be lazy, relying on quirky randomness to get through.

I sure did laugh, but this spin-off eventually wears a little thin, and sometimes gets kind of disturbing

  • Summary: The now very famous but widely despised Russell Brand made his breakthrough in 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", in which he played Aldous Snow, the lead singer of the fictional rock band, Infant Sorrow. In this 2010 spin-off sequel, the comedian got to reprise his role from the previous film, but this time, it was one of the two lead roles.

Was expecting more laughs.

  • Summary: I kept hearing Get Him to the Greek, being compared to The Hangover, which I loved and thought extremely funny. Get Him to the Greek was at times more disturbing, pathetic, and gross than funny. I should have waited for it to come out on video. Normally you can hear people laugh around you, but I do not recall hearing anyone really laughing. My son, son-in-law and daughter also saw it.

  • Summary: I'm giving this movie a very reserved three. The progression of the film itself was "eh." Some parts of it were just pointless, and some were just awkward and uncomfortable--but I couldn't stop laughing throughout. Hill and Brand are so so funny. The combination of Hill's very awkward sense of humor and Brand's sarcasm make the two of them together an unstoppable force.They are hilarious. The movie is really funny for anyone who wants to go see it..

Forgotten Sarah Marshall?

  • Summary: Hmmm, this sounds familiar... a young up and comer in the music biz is charged with getting a famously drunken and drugged up rock star to a comeback concert and comic chaos ensues... Anyone recall Richard Benjamin's "My Favorite Year" (1982)? It starred Peter O'Toole as Alan Swann (a character based on Erol Flynn) a drunken matinee idol who is to appear on a live 1950's U.S. TV show.

  • Summary: It was a very funny movie and Russell Brand played himself very well and he made for a very liakable character. A few "OMG" moments and overall a good laugh but would wait until it hits DVD as it is not a fantastic movie
