Storyline

English rock star Aldous Snow relapses into drugs and booze after a break up and a disastrous record. In L.A., Aaron Green works for a record company stuck in recession. Aaron's boss gives him a career making task - to bring Aldous from London to L.A. for a concert in 72 hours. That day, Aaron's girlfriend Daphne tells him she wants to finish her medical residency in Seattle. Aaron's sure this ends their relationship. In London, things aren't much better: Aldous delays their departure several times, plies Aaron with vices, and alternates between bad behavior and trenchant observations. Can Aaron moderate Aldous's substance abuse and get him to the Greek? What about Daphne? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Didn't live up to the expectation
26 May 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Once again, we are dealing with a comedy that presented good potential but that ultimately disappoints.

Yet, Get Him To The Greek started off pretty well in a sustained rhythm with flying dialogues, gags, songs more absurd one from another and a crazy spirit that augured good things. Jonah Hill is excellent as always and proves once again he is probably one of the best comedians of his generation, but P. Diddy is particularly surprising because he managed very well.

But the more the movie progresses, the more it loses its comical aspect, the gags fall flat and become more and more rare, making room for very boring, satirical melodramatic episodes on the music industry and the life of an artist. In this sense, Get Him To The Greek probably would have worked better as a pure comedy, and shorten by 15 minutes to make it denser.
