It doesn't take very long to realize this movie is written really, really well. Not only is the humor top notch (actually really funny), but the story and characters are written without flaw. Acting is superb. Russell Brand and Rose Byrne are about as good as it gets in a flick like this, and Jonah Hill gives one of the greatest performances of his career. The surprise actor in this movie is actually Sean Combs. He really nails his character as a record company exec and adds some nicely placed humor and counter-play to the fun Brand and Hill are having.
As a musician myself, this movies really hits home several times. The relationship that evolves between Brand and Hill is true movie magic. Chemistry, writing and scenes all intermingle to create one of the best and funniest movies ever made. I highly recommend this movie.
