There is not much of a plot to this movie. A young, up-and-coming executive Aaron Green (Jonah Hill), who works for a failing album company, conceives of an idea to have a 10-year reunion concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for his favorite rock star, Aldous Snow (edgy British comic Russell Brand), who is now a washed-up has-been who needs a major career breakthrough.
The record company owner (the foul-mouthed Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs) puts together the venue and sets up the promotional tour. Tickets sell out in minutes. Now, the only thing left to do is get the rock star to the Greek. Aaron must travel to London and get Aldous to the concert on time.
Sounds like an easy task, right? Wrong!
Along the way, Aaron’s itinerary – and his morality – is continually changed by Aldous’s plans to party and drink his way to the Greek. The two unlikely companions stop at party after party on a 48-hour whirlwind tour of debauchery and hedonism. Aaron easily falls into Aldous’ lifestyle of partying, excessive drinking, excessive sexual promiscuity, and excessive illegal drug use while trying to reach his primary objective: getting Aldous to the Greek Theatre in time for his comeback concert.
GET HIM TO THE GREEK is horrible. It is not funny. It is not well-told. Even its brief moral messages of forgiveness and a man’s struggle to get sober are lost amid the outright depravity of the script and the movie’s creative team.
The movie is blatantly pagan and hedonistic. It contains excessive nudity, sexuality, aberrant sexual behavior, sexual dialogue, an obscene amount of foul language, violence, vile amounts of drunkenness and drug use. This movie has nothing redeemable in it whatsoever. Any person with any self-respect or any moral decency will avoid this movie at all costs.
The filmmakers, Judd Apatow and Jason Segel, need prayer. They need the forgiveness of Jesus Christ. They are willingly leading the youth who flock to sophomoric comedies like this one down the primrose path of destruction. Please pray for the unwitting people who see this vile movie – that they would come to know Jesus Christ and the truth that will set them free from this horrific type of entertainment!
GET HIM TO THE GREEK is horrible. It is not funny. It is not well-told. Even its brief moral messages of forgiveness and a man’s struggle to get sober are lost amid the outright depravity of the script and the movie’s creative team. The movie is blatantly pagan and hedonistic full of abhorrent and abundant depravity, including unfunny, crude slapstick violence. Truly intelligent and wise moviegoers will hate this movie.
