Get Him to the Greek

"Doesn't it make sense that we should stay here and possibly have the time of your life?" - Aldous Snow

release year: 2009
genre: comedy
viewing setting: home Bluray 2/3/17 and home DVD, 8/15/12

synopsis: It's almost time for rock legend Aldous Snow's ten-years-later concert, but he's in London and partying non-stop, so a young agent is sent to retrieve him in time, if that's possible.

impressions: Hilarious. The rock star character is over the top, as are his actions and especially his songs! If you liked Forgetting Sarah Marshall then you need to watch this. Be warned: it's often crude.

something this movie has that no other movie has: furry walls

acting: Russell Brand is great as the living-to-excess rock star. Jonah Hill is good as a regular guy who gets a taste of the lifestyle.

final word: Good comedy if you like 'em a little raunchy.
