Get Him to the Greek

Beeps Pick: Get Him to the Greek

Get Him to the Greek (2-Disc Unrated Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray]

Why I picked this film:  I chose this film because I love Russell Brand.  That's really the only reason.  Russell Brand is one of the funniest people alive today. 

Beeps:  This film is not for the feint of heart.  The drugs and drug usage flows, the women react much how you would expect them to with a rock star in their midst...  If you can get past that.  What you have at it's core is a genuinely funny film.  I just wanted to say, I have no problem getting past that, and in fact I believe that it lends itself to the affection that you can't help but feel for the characters.  Russell Brand reprises his rock star character Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, if you enjoyed him in that film, you will most assuredly enjoy him here where he steps into the spotlight and shows that he can lead the way in a film.  4 Stars!

Apes:  Wow what a perverted roller coaster of a film. I feel almost dirty to admit that this is a very funny film, but its almost potty humor. Russell Brand is so funny check out our review of his stand up DVD! If you are mature, sophisticated, classy, or consider yourself an upright citizen then I'd recommend skipping this film. However, if you are a self proclaimed scum bag or shameless individual I say check it out. The comedy is low, the songs are terrible, and the whole movie is a whirlwind of shockingly tasteless jokes, but the acting is great, the script has a flow, and it really is funny. I give it 3 1/2 stars. I'd give it more, but I'm afraid it would make me feel dirty! :)

Overall we give it 4 stars.

  1. Great review. I'd personally give it lower as the comedy like you said was low. Some parts were funny but overall..meh. Maybe that's due to my extreme dislike of Russel Brand though.

  2. I honestly love that film. Diddy is so fantastic in it.
