Film Review: GET HIM TO THE GREEK

Judd Apatow’s Get Him to the Greek 

by Zack Smith  


Our rating:

The British comedian Russell Brand’s mercurial screen presence walked off with 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall. With his unruly hair, thick eyebrows and lanky frame (he resembles an anorexic caveman), Brand offered a mixture of naughtiness and innocence missing from modern film-comedy stars increasingly geared toward family-friendly vehicles.

Brand is set to star in a number of upcoming productions, including a remake of Arthur with Greta Gerwig. His first such vehicle is Get Him to the Greek, where he reprises his Sarah Marshall role as rock star Aldous Snow for Sarah Marshall director Nick Stoller and producer Judd Apatow. Greek is half of a great comedy, though perhaps some of its biggest laughs come not from its rock star protagonist but from a real-life musician.
