Get Him to the Greek

Outrageous, drink-and-fags-fuelled comic road movie

Stars

Russell Brand, P Diddy

The pitch

Brit comic Brand makes his bid for Hollywood superstardom with an outrageous, drink-and-fags-fuelled comic road movie. Reprising his role from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Russ plays self-absorbed rocker Aldous Snow, who has 72 hours to get to the Greek Theatre in LA with his snivelling fanboy record exec.

The word

Early leaked reviews have been mixed – some love the OTT comedy, others feel the film pushes its bad-taste humour a touch too far. But the trailer is damn funny, early word on P Diddy’s performance suggests an unexpected comic ability of Tom Cruise-like proportions and, most importantly, this is Brand in his element. If he can’t pull this one off, he may as well give up right now.
