Get Him To The Greek stars the infamous Jonah Hill, cast in yet another typical role for the overweight, nerdy motion picture sensation. Topping it all off, is Russell Brand, who ironically playing the same character (Aldous Snow) he did when Hill and he did their last movie together, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
So just to get this straight, this is the same character as Forgetting Sarah Marshall for Russell Brand, but not the same character for Jonah Hill? Anyone see how they missed the bus on this one? Why not do a continuation of the movie, using both the same characters?
Aaron Green gets things done. The ambitious 24-year-old has been given a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio Roma, gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth.
Turn your back on him at your own peril.” British rocker Aldous Snow is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of “yes men” and scared he’s entered the “greatest hits” moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral. When he learns his true love, model/pop star Jackie Q, is in Los Angeles, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back–right before kick-starting his world domination.
As the countdown to the concert begins, one innocent young man must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound–all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.
Why you care
The only appeal here is the cameo appearances of a few famous musicians inserted from time to time. Katy Perry, Aquilera, Pink and P.Diddy all appear in the film for moments, but is this really enough for you to shell out some money?

What’s Bad About It?
