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>

Get him to the Greek is a slightly off beat gross out comedy from Judd Apatow stable, directed by Nicolas Stoller and is a loose spin off from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Jonah Hill is Aaron Greenberg an ambitious music executive who is tasked by his boss (Sean Combs) to go to London and escort a controversial rock star to LA's Greek Theatre for a multi million dollar tour.

The trouble is Brit rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) is heavily into the sex, drugs, drink and rock n roll lifestyle and needs careful handling. Greenberg also has delicate issues in the domestic front as his girlfriend wants to move to Seattle to finish her medical residency.

As Greenberg rushes to get him to the Greek, Snow always seems to stop off somewhere for some partying, boozing and sex. Even when they get near LA, Snow ends up diverted to Vegas to see his estranged dad where they end up with more partying and boozing until both Snow and Greenberg realise they want to reconcile with their respective partners.

The film has a thin story which has been done before such as 'My Favourite Year.' It is sporadically amusing, some of the gross humour is funny and Brand manages to be just on the right side of being frazzled rock star without getting too irritating. However the plot is stretched and repetitive. The duo are always battling for time but manage to get to wherever they need to in the nick of time despite being struck in traffic or being engaged in hard core partying.
