Eight Clips from ‘Get Him to the Greek’


Russell Brand and Jonah Hill seem like an odd duo to hit the big screen, but that’s part of the fun. After watching some clips for “Get Him to the Greek,” I must say it seems down right hysterical.

Hill, who plays Aaron Green, has a brilliant way of delivering even the simplest of lines. He can take the word “No” and make it hilarious. Team him up with Brand, who plays Aldous Snow, and I think we are in for a very quirky and entertaining cinematic adventure.

The plot is simple, Aaron Green is an intern for a record company and has been assigned to escort Aldous Snow, an out-of-hand British rock star, to a concert at the famous Greek Theater in L.A. Of course, the adventure of getting Aldous to the Greek is task that will leave the main characters in comical situations involving drugs, lap dances, brawls and, of course, true love.

Sean Combs has been featured in many of the clips with punchlines galore, mostly revolving around his African American descent. It makes me wonder if his part in this flick is all a big ploy. Regardless, the film is set to have many cameos, including Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Meredith Viera and Dee Snider.

With Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Sean Combs, and a plethora of folks who aren’t afraid to poke fun of themselves, “Get Him to the Greek” is a promising comedy that has me hooked from the previews I have seen. From Jonah Hill getting stabbed with an adrenaline needle to trying to sneeze with his eyes open, I fail to see how he could disappoint. Russell Brand’s sarcastic British humor and imitations of old British women are reasons why we love him .. come on, he was the stand-out character in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” with his dirty Brit image and what better way to honor him than with this spin off? Put the two together and throw some women in the mix along with P. Diddy and what you have is a diverse playing field for jokes.

I can’t wait to see this film and I only hope it is another “adult” comedy that is not afraid to go to a raunchy place and leave the cookie-cutter romantic comedies in the dust. I have forgotten Ms. Marshall, and am ready to rock with Aldous Snow.

    I have some friends who got to see this at an early screening of this film late last year and said it was absolutely hysterical. Surprisingly they said the stand out perdormance in this movie is by Sean Combs. I cannot wait to seethis film. A quick question though: If Russel Brand is playing his character form “Forgetting Srah Marshall” then how does that work with Jonah Hill as he was also in that film & was waiter at the restaurant in Maui that was obsessed with Brands character? should be interesting to see if they address this ! Great Article

    love Jonah Hill, Brand just bugs me. So I’m still up in the air on whether to see it or not. I hope it’s as funny and good as Sarah Marshall. Adam, I agree, if it’s a spin off from Sarah Marshall, how does Jonah Hill come into play since he was in the movie as a waiter. Hopefully they address it as him taking an internship, and of course first big break is his favorite star. We will wait and see.
