Greetings! Have you ever wondered if a movie's worth blowing the money on to see at the theater or what to add next to your NetFlix queue? Then you've come to the right place! Enjoy!

"Get Him To The Greek" Review

Russell Brand is the annoying twat from Forgetting Sarah Marshall again and Jonah Hill plays a variation of the same fat guy he plays in everything in Get Him To The Greek, an overpraised comedy that was only worth it because I snuck in after seeing Splice.

The premise - get Brand's wanker from London to L.A. in three days - occasionally pays off with wild party scenes and some of the more eclectic cameos you see in a comedy (hint: a Nobel Prize-winning economist and a douchebag drummer appear as themselves), but the hints at depth that have effed-up recent Judd Apatow films (he produced this) don't add up to squat. No one really changes, so it's all a damp squib.

When it's funny - Sean "Puff Daddy/Puffy/P. Diddy/Diddy/that jerk who used that Police song to rap about Biggie/Poofy Dad" Combs just KILLS IT in every scene and will be the subject of a YouTube clip reel - it's hilarious, but it's too uneven and the ending is just weird.

Score: 4/10. Catch it on cable. Or sneak in after seeing something better you paid for.

Observation: Elisabeth Moss is actually passably cute here without her disfiguring bangs from Mad Men.
