After several professional and personal disasters, English rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) has gone off the rails. Despite being at his lowest ebb, Snow's US record company want him to perform in a special anniversary concert at LA's Greek Theatre. With just days until the gig, naïve intern Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) is sent to London to bring the star back to LA, a task which is a lot trickier than it sounds.
Aaron's-well meaning attempts to fulfil his duties become lost in a haze of drink, drugs and debauchery as the charismatic Snow's bad habits rub off on him. As the pair go on a bender, living it up across London, it becomes increasingly unlikely that Aaron will get the unruly rocker to The Greek on time.
While the British comic provides the sparkle, Hill grounds the movie, playing the straight man, and often, the role of the shocked viewer. While the leads are great, the supporting cast are an extra delight, with Rose Byrne bang-on as Snow's outrageous rock star ex Jackie Q. Elisabeth Moss appears as Hill's medical intern girlfriend, while rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs is surprisingly hilarious as no-nonsense record exec Sergio Roma.
With Brand on irresistible form, some enjoyably grown-up humour, and a host of celeb cameos, Get Him To The Greek is a lot of fun and will certainly keep you laughing throughout.
