Get Him to the Greek is a 2010 American comedy film written and directed by Nicholas Stoller and starring Jonah Hill and Russell Brand. The film was released on June 4, 2010. Get Him to the Greek is a spin-off sequel of Stoller's 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, reuniting director Stoller with stars Hill and Brand. Brand reprises his role as character Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, while Hill plays an entirely new character. The film also starsElisabeth Moss, Rose Byrne, and Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) releases a song about problems in Africa called "African Child." The song and music video are seen as horrible and called "the worst thing to happen to Africa since apartheid." The single seemingly ruins Snow's career, and as a result he starts drinking and doing drugs excessively once again. His girlfriend Jackie Q (Rose Byrne), with whom he had a son named Naples, also leaves him, taking custody of Naples.

Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) is a driven, idealistic young college graduate who works as an intern at Pinnacle Records. He lives with his girlfriend Daphne (Elisabeth Moss), a doctor in her internship, but they do not get to see each other often due to her heavy work schedule. Pinnacle Records has lost a lot of money, so the head of the company, Sergio Roma (Sean "Diddy" Combs), asks for ideas. Green proposes to have Snow play at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for the tenth anniversary of a particularly famous performance there.

Sergio decides Green has a good idea, so he orders him to transport Snow from London, to an interview on the Today Show, then to the concert in Los Angeles. Before he leaves, Green has a fight with Daphne. She was offered a job in Seattle and wants to move there, but Green is hesitant to do so. Green has to leave to catch a flight, and he departs thinking they have broken up. When he arrives at London, he finds Snow is incredibly difficult and unwilling to listen to Green. As a result, they spend a long time out partying, constantly pushing their departure further and further back. Green has been trying to limit Snow's narcotic intake, but is forced to let him do drugs and drink for fear that he won't perform. Because of this, when they finally arrive at the Today Show, barely making the deadline, Green drinks and smokes as much as he can so Snow cannot. Although Snow originally wants to sing "African Child", he forgets the words. Green, in his high and drunk stupor tries to assist him, but Snow simply changes the song. His performance is well accepted, and both Green and Snow feel better about future prospects.

While preparing to fly to Los Angeles, Snow forces Green to smuggle drugs in his rectum. During their travels and time in London and New York, Green learns that Snow has become miserable and lonely, as he misses his son and has not talked to his father in several years. Green shares his relationship troubles, and Snow encourages him to enjoy his time in Los Angeles. Giving advice to Snow, Green suggests he visits Jackie Q and his father and so the two make a stop in Las Vegas the night prior to the show to see Snow's father. Sergio also arrives, wanting to help oversee the final proceedings. Green, on Sergio's orders, leaves to have sex with a girl named Destiny, but she sodomizes him with a large dildo. He tells Snow and his father that he has been raped, so they encourage him to smoke a "Geoffrey", a joint which is filled with many different drugs. Green starts believing he is having a heart attack, but the others are too high to help him. Snow has a fight with his father; Sergio jumps in, and their tussle ends up setting the club on fire. Green begins feeling better, but Snow attempts to help Green with an adrenaline shot to the heart and they run out of the club, chased by Sergio.

Snow and Green are driven to Los Angeles, where Snow visits Jackie Q. She has been sleeping with Lars Ulrich (and is apparently engaged to him), and confesses to Snow that Naples is not actually his biological son. This depresses him even further. During this time, Green returns to his girlfriend and tries to make amends for the sex he has had during their fight. She did not believe they were broken up, leading to more friction. Snow shows up, trying to help, and invites them to a threesome, which Daphne accepts and Green reluctantly goes along with. During their sex, Green becomes distressed, and orders Snow out of his house. Snow has now hit rock bottom, and an hour before the concert prepares to jump from a roof. Green comes to his aid and Snow instead jumps into a pool, but hits his arm on the way down, breaking it. Instead of going to a hospital, Snow does the concert, realizing his fans are more important than he is. Although Green discusses with Sergio that Snow really needs help, the executive's only suggestion is to have Snow pop some more pills; this enabling causes Green to quit in disgust. However, Green sees how happy Snow is performing and lets him continue while he himself goes home and reconciles with his girlfriend. Months later in Seattle (where Green and his girlfriend have moved), a healthier Snow has returned to fame with a single produced by Green based on events from their night in Las Vegas.

Very similar to another movie that also had Jonah Hill called Funny People. Hill must help a reckless rock star reform himself like Seth Rogen needed to help Adam Sandler. While Funny People was great, this movie is too silly and Hill is a poor leading actor.     Hill works for record excecutive Sergio (Sean Combs or whatever he is calling himself these days) and has ideas on how to revitalize the company's label. That is to go find a once famous rock star and get him to perform …

Russell Brand's new comedy "Get Him to the Greek" serves up a promising story but ultimately fails to deliver. Bad Boy rocker (Brand), reprises his Aldous Snow character from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and once again reunites with its director, Nicholas Stoller. The adventure is set in motion when Aldous' record label devises a plan to revive the slumping rocker's career by bringing him to LA from London for a 10th anniversary concert at the Greek Theater. The …

I never thought a film could make me feel like such a sell out.  Truth is, I had a hard enough time trying to sit through the film that started it all, but now with the sequel soon hitting theaters I am dumbfounded as to why I even thought Aldus Snow could redeem himself.  Get Him to the Greek feels like a cheap knock off in comparison to Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and yet with all of the "names" in the film I can't believe a story like this could even be made.  Don't …

4 stars: crude, raunchy and rude
Everyone has dreams  some people dream of being a rock star and taking the world by storm, some people dream of being huge movie stars and  have fans scream there name as they walk down the carpet to the premiere of their  movie. However, for some they are just dreams and Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) is no exception you see Aaron is like most people he dreams big however, his dreams never can fully come to fruition due to his place on the totem pole of life. What Aaron wants more than …

      A lot of directors out there have a good eye for crafting comedy. Jody Hill, director of The Foot Fist Way and Observe and Report, has a unique way of teaching us a lesson about the ugly truths of society buried beneath dark comedy. Adam McKay, one of the most in-demand comedy directors, has a way of making broader, more widely-acceptable comedies that draw in huge audiences, mainly for his affiliation with comedy icon Will Ferrell. However, my favorite filmmaker indulging …

This is a movie tailored for the college kids or the college kid in all of us. If you like to party, drink, smoke, whatever, then you'll probably appreciate this film. There were parts early on in the film that were pretty slow, to me, but then the comedy picked up and we laughed a lot.      The main character in this movie is Aldous Snow who was also a character in the Forgetting Sarah Marshall. In this movie, we see Aldous as a washed up rock star, alcoholic, drug addict....basically …

   I enjoyed this movie. I honestly thought I was going to not be entertained because I dislike Russell Brandt and I also hate Pdiddy. Both of them were actually very good though and I absolutely love the guy from Superbad as well as the girl from Mad Men. Each had their great moments of the movie which was great. The movie trailer did seem to downplay how funny the movie really was which was a good thing, because it did not show all the hilarious moments, just enough to somewhat tease …
