SYNOPSIS: Jonah Hill and Russell Brand reunite in a raunchy, raucous comedy from the writer and director of the smash hit comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Aspiring record company exec Aaron Green (Hill) has the brilliant idea of rejuvenating the career of fading British rock star Aldous Snow (Brand) with a comeback concert at the world-renowned Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Dispatched by his boss (Sean Combs) to transport the notoriously dissolute Snow from London to L.A., Aaron has just 72 hours to wrangle the out-of-control rocker across the Atlantic. The seemingly simple assignment devolves into a thicket of groupies and parties, as Snow does his anarchic best to undermine his handler at every turn and Aaron does whatever it takes to keep his unruly charge on track.
DVD: The film is
presented in widescreen with a 1.85:1 aspect ration
preserving its theatrical format. Not only the picture looks
good in this release, also the sound it is good. A Dolby Digital
English, Spanish and French 5.1 Surround Sound, providing a nice complement to the
picture, it also includes English, Spanish and French subtitles.
In terms of Special Features
the DVD includes plenty of material worth the time. I really
enjoyed the fake documentaries and the deleted and extended
scenes. It also includes a digital copy
"Get Him To The Greek" is not a disappointment. It is one
of the nicest surprises of 2010 Summer Season. If you think you have
seen everything just by looking at the trailer, think again. Get Him To The Greek is just
an funny ride that it will make you laugh from the
first scene. One of the best comedies of the year.
