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>

14 July 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I haven't reviewed any movies on IMDb in the last few years, but I just had to return and warn the world after spending just under an hour of my life watching "Get Him To The Greek". Yes. I walked out halfway through. Does that entitle me to write a review, considering I haven't seen the entire movie? I think it does.

I normally give a movie 10-15 minutes to "get going", and usually they do. "Superbad" started out looking like a bore, but suddenly got very funny and eventually got hilarious.

This didn't.

The plot is simple. Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) has 72 hours to get Russell Brand's character, "Aldus Snow" a hard-drinking, self-absorbed, washed-up rock star, from London to L.A. so he can play a comeback gig and revive his career and make millions for the record company. After flying to London and making contact with Aldus, Aaron suddenly realizes this is going to be tougher than expected. Aldus Snow seems more interested in showing Aaron the "best night of his life", so off they go on an almighty all-day bender. After this intense night of partying and missing about 4 flights, he finally gets him on to the plane and he can finally relax, mission accomplished.

This was the end of the movie, for me. Nobody laughed. I walked into the cinema expecting to have a bit of a chuckle but this was just a poor, weak, desperate attempt to make Russell Brand into a huge movie star, which I now hope he never ever becomes, having starred in this unfunny joke.
