I was watching the news one day and I saw footage about, uh, war, and I think it was Darfur, or Zimbabwe, or Rwanda, or one of 'em, and I thought, 'this isn't right, is it?' And I made some phone calls and it turns out, it isn't.

After the end credits role, Aaron Green's hallucination of Sergio's head appears saying, "Go home. Get the fuck out of the theater. The movie's over." See more »
Oh what a character. If you love Russell Brand, seeing this movie should be a no-brainer for you. His character was the best part of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and it's the best part of "Get Him to the Greek."
If you enjoyed "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," be aware that Greek is far more outrageous and crude, even to the point of getting past that suspension of disbelief that is the holy barrier of Do-Not-Cross when it comes to these types of movies.
Performances are top-notch (except for an occasionally overacting P. Diddy), and the production values are just tremendous. The "music videos" and occasional cameos are just masterful!
Just be aware - there are a few exceptionally uncomfortable scenes, one of which is a huge misstep, and just very awkward (you'll know when you see it).
Overall, though, a fun movie. No, you'll forget you saw it soon after, but you'll have a rockin' time while you're there.
