The movie is a spin-off of the 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and follows the character of Aldous Snow, played by Brand, as he prepares for a comeback tour while also battling with addiction and personal demons. The film begins with the character of Aaron Green, played by Jonah Hill, who works as a record company executive. He is given a task by his boss Sergio, played by Sean 'Diddy' Combs, to fly to London and escort rockstar Aldous Snow to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for a concert. This concert is expected to be the highlight of Aldous Snowâs comeback tour. Aaron manages to make contact with Aldous, who is living a luxurious lifestyle in London, but things do not go as smoothly as he planned. Aldous is heavily addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has become quite unstable. Aaronâs task becomes more complicated when Aldous seduces his girlfriend, Daphne, played by Elisabeth Moss. Meanwhile, the two charactersâ paths intersect with wild parties and raunchy adventures which leave them both in a wild night of hedonism. As Aaron tries to keep Aldous on track for the concert, Aldous is more concerned about partying and indulging in his addictions. Aaron also has to deal with his own personal issues, including the perception of his job, the distance with his girlfriend, and personal stress. The two characters travel from London to New York to Vegas, and eventually to Los Angeles, all while encountering numerous obstacles and complications. Get Him to the Greek is a raunchy, adult film that is loaded with drugs, sex, and raucous humor. It features a solid, comedic performance from Russell Brand, who manages to make the character of Aldous Snow sympathetic, despite his flaws. Additionally, Hill delivers a great performance as the straight man in the film, with great chemistry between himself and Brand. The movie showcases a number of cameo appearances from comedians and musicians, including Kristen Bell, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Lars Ulrich, Starsailor, and many others. Each cameo contributes to the overall theme of the movie, and enhances the comedic elements of the film. The film is also notable for its music, which plays a central role in the story. The soundtrack features a combination of brand new songs from Russell Brand and remixed versions of classic rock hits from the '70s and '80s. Get Him to the Greek is ultimately a tale of redemption and friendship, as well as a satirical look at the music industry. It explores the concept of excess, and the consequences that come with living a life of excess. The movie is also a commentary on the influence of music celebrities in popular culture, and the ways in which they are often insulated from reality. Overall, Get Him to the Greek is a funny, raunchy, and entertaining movie that is well worth a watch for fans of adult comedies. It is both a great spin-off of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and an independent comedy film in its own right. The music of the movie is also a refreshing element to the mix, and the whimsical exploration of twentysomething male friendship is a nice bonus in the film. The movie culminates in a concert that has great energy and enjoyment all around, and is a fitting end to a wild journey.
