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>

10/10 for puke
4 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Admittedly, 2 minutes into this movie I realised it was a mistake of mine to bring my mum with me to watch it on a lazy Saturday afternoon! Completely embarrassed from beginning to end and I didn't know where to look. Whoops!

I was disappointed by this movie as from the trailers it looked like it would be a lot of fun, a bit rude at times but mainly a bit of a giggle. I was upset to see that quite a huge amount of the scenes I laughed at in the trailers weren't included in the movie itself which did give me the wrong impression of what it was going to be like.

The swearing in the film was truly awful and no sentence was without an F-word or obscenity. The very rude sex scenes were completely unnecessary and again were a constant theme throughout the movie and added nothing to the actual storyline. I am absolutely not a prude at all and loved The Hangover last year and have seen the likes of Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall and really enjoyed those movies but Get him to the Greek was really an excuse for Russell Brand just to be as filthy as possible and I didn't find it remotely funny.

I found the movie to be endorsing and glamorising alcohol and drugs and I kept waiting for the moral message of "this is the wrong way to live your life" to come through and it really didn't until the last 2 seconds of the movie.

I'm a girl so maybe this is more of a blokes film but definitely won't be recommending this to any of my friends. No real plot, no real likable characters... no real point!
