Get Him to the Greek is the new movie that spins-off the Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) character from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Snow is back to his hard-partying ways, and his relationship with singer Jackie Q is on the rocks. Worse, his most recent album with Infant Sorrow, African Child, is a comercial and critical bust. (The New Musical Express has dubbed it "the worst thing to happen to Africa since apartheid".)
Meanwhile, Aaron Green (Hill) works for Sergio (Sean "Puffy" Combs) at Pinnacle Records, who are looking for fresh ideas to restart the company. Hill suggests a 10th anniversary concert for Infant Sorrow at the Greek theater, to commemorate their most celebrated performance. Spin it off into a serious of reissues, live albums, and DVDs and you have a potential game changer. Sergio orders Green to get Snow to the Greek.
This sets into motion a series of events to test Green's resolve and Snow's stamina for partying. Getting Snow to the Greek is not as easy as it sounds. A notorious rock star type, Snow has no interest in doing anything besides living in the moment, even if it means missing flight after flight after flight. The plot here is not complicated, it's just a series of funny misadventures as Green desperately tries to steer Snow in the right direction. Add in a couple unnessesary side plots about the girlfriends of both main characters.
The humour of this movie is anchored by the amiable Brand, and Jonah Hill playing a less loudmouthed version of Jonah Hill, and the absolutely hilarious Combs as Sergio.Read more ›
Flashforward a few years later, these two now have their own movie... which isn't bad, but isn't really great either. Where Sarah Marshall was touching and funny, Get Him to the Greek is dirty and forces its welcome. A few fun scenes do exist here and there, but none of them make for the fact that the movie feels tired, overly clichéd and is riddled from weaknesses in a script that only exaggerates further and further. It's been one or two years since I first saw it and I still have to watch it a second time... and I'm in no rush...
Special features are quite sufficient, though. Deleted scenes, interviews, behind the scenes, improv moments, etc. The DVD features an entire collection of special features too, so don't discard it.
Rent it first, but if you just LOVE these characters, then you may be in for a good time. Be warned that exaggeration is the name of the game, not plot development.
The movie begins by introducing rockstar Aldous Snow who is an internationally famous frontman from the band Infant Sorrow. Snow's career is on the decline following the release of his latest album "African Child". Aldous' wife, popstar Jackie Q leaves him and he starts to drink again after being sober for 7 years and he ends up on the cover of many tabloid magazines covering his fall from superstardom . A concert at the Greek Theatre (where the movie gets its title) is arranged for Aldous and could set him back on the right path. The Greek was were Aldous recorded the best selling live album of all time (that's fictional of course).Read more ›
