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>

Recycled, unfunny garbage
13 October 2010 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Whatever happened to witty and smart comedy films like Monty Python, Airplane! and Spaceballs? They got replaced by films like this one that shouldn't appeal to any one over 13.

What's wrong with this movie you ask? Everything. The plot, the characters, the 'humour', everything. Let's start with the plot. Some guy (who's exact job isn't made very clear in the movie) is supposed to get an 'out of control' rockstar to a concert. In doing so, 'hilarious' antics ensue which I will cover later in the review. What I hate about this plot is that the rockstar life is portrayed so negatively. Drugs, drinking, degradation of women. According to the movie, that's what rock n roll is all about. The music? Oh no, that has nothing to do with being a rockstar (OK, I'm exaggerating, but the music part is kept very minimal throughout the film). And of course, the film has the obligatory sappy part and a 'everything's fine and dandy' ending.

As for the characters, they're all just so annoying! The main character, played by Jonah Hill, is an overweight, useless person who continues being everyone's welcome mat to wipe their feet on. His girlfriend, played by ... umm ... some random good looking chick, manages to be a busy surgeon and an obnoxious 'Oh.Em.Gee' teenager at the same time. Sean Diddy plays the boss, and is as much of a scumbag in this movie he probably is in real life. The rockstar, played by Russel Brand also makes me want tear my hair apart due to his extremely irritating 'I'm a rockstar and therefore better than you' attitude.

The 'humour'. Where do I start? Barfing, pooping, drug use, overuse of alcohol, breast exposure and other forms of female degradation are common. Sean Diddy pulls out jokes which would be considered very racially insensitive if it wasn't for the fact he is black himself (I consider these jokes offensive anyway). Swearing is obviously very common and is never used in a humorous fashion. There are a lot of awkward moments in the film too which are supposed to be funny. But the filmmakers forgot one thing. If there is no humour applied to awkward moments, they are just that, awkward and not funny, not by a long stretch. Then there's this scene where the obligatory crazy chick takes out a dildo and rapes the main character. This is supposed to be hysterical, but I think any sane person will find it awfully disturbing more than anything. The only somewhat redeemable joke was the little Lars Ulrich/Napster reference. But that doesn't make up for the fact that there is so much tasteless 'humour' and also the fact that Lars' cameo is pretty much wasted.

This is a terrible film. An example of how much Hollywood has dumbed itself down, at least in terms of the comedy genre. But what's even sadder is, that most people have swallowed this as a good comedy flick. I'd honestly watch Epic Movie 60 times over in a row than call this a good movie. Yes, it's that bad.
