Last night was date night. After a glutenous amount of all-you-can-eat-sushi, Dr. J and I went to see Get Him To The Greek. It was Dr. J's idea and I had not even seen the trailer for the film.
It was HIGHlarious. This movie is a cross between The Hangover, Almost Famous and Pineapple Express. It takes place in London, New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas and follows the seventy-two hours it takes music producer intern played by Jonah Hill, to get rock star, Rusell Brand, to perform at The Greek Theater.
Jonah Hill is an actor who plays his characters well. He generally plays a Jewish, pot smoking, teddy bear in such films as Superbad, The Hangover and Funny People. Get Him To The Greek is no exception. Rusell Brand plays a ferociously sexy rock star named Aldous Snow (a resurrection of his character from Forgetting Sarah Marshall) whose lifestyle is out of control. Sean P. Diddy Combs plays a music mogul with strong paralles to himself. The film includes cameos by Pink, Christina Aguriella, Meridith Viera and the drummer from Metallica.
This movie is raunchy, quick witted and laugh out loud funny.
It came out in the US on June 4th and is theatres now.
With such names as: Wet Dream, Happy Ending, Screaming Orgasm and Hawaiian Roll
