There aren’t very many comedies that we’re looking forward to this year at The Flickcast offices. We already got our hopes up with Will Forte’s MacGruber, so all bets are off on what will turn out to be genuinely funny or not. We’re hoping that this Friday’s Get Him To The Greek may be one of those that sneak under the radar.
The film is essentially a spin off of 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall in which Russell Brand returns to his outlandish rock star character Aldous Snow. Jonah Hill returns, but this time as a new neurotic character, who has to get the doped up Snow to The Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
There are a few lame moments (most of which are unfortunately when Sean “Puffy” Combs are on the screen), but on the flip side of that, there are some genuinely funny moments between both Hill and Brand.
Check out the clips after the jump, and be sure to catch Get Him To The Greek when it hits theaters this Friday.
