"Get Him to the Greek" (2010) is a extremely humorous movie I by no means heard of 4

It stars Jonah Hill, Russel Brand, Rose Byrne, Puff Daddy (Sean Combs), Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”), with a cameo by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. Writers are Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother actor). Here’s a trailer:


I feel the film is far funnier than the trailer although. “Get Him to the Greek” got here out a yr after “The Hangover” (2009), and the film has the same tempo and outlandish humor, and an total related story construction. Record label assistant Jonah Hill has to get musician Russel Brand to his live performance on the Greek theater by a sure time, and regardless of many drug-related detours by the rock star. “The Hangover” plot has the same deadline and plenty of wild detour storylines.

Despite a sure similarity, “Get Him to the Greek” is its personal authentic with a singular and stellar forged, and with its combination of humor and pathos. Russel Brand is outlandish and bigger than life, but additionally a lonely and damaged hearted individual.

Can’t appear to search out the film on Netflix, so should have seen it on Amazon Prime Video.

[EDIT] By the best way do you know Jonah Hill wrote and directed his personal film? It’s referred to as “Mid90s” (2018). It’s a surprisingly sober, considerate slice of life movie coping with the approaching of age story of a 13 yr previous skater child. I think about it a very good movie, though for me, unfinished.
