Get Him to the Greek

Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated
Release: Oct 06, 2010 - Author: Mike Lowrey - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB
Get him to the Greek is a spin-off of the comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall from 2008. There, Russell Brand starred as British music superstar Aldous Snow for the first time and obviously the producers saw the potential for a whole movie about this character. Almost two years later, the movie is finished and even features Jonah Hill (Superbad) again, although he now plays a different role than in the previous movie.

The movie received the R-Rating (for strong sexual content and drug use throughout, and pervasive language), however, the DVD and BluRay releases in America also contain an extended Unrated version. The extensions are rather lengthy pieces and not very subtle, however it is questionable whether one really needs the additional scenes because they seem to slow the movie down quite a bit.

Aaron: "You used Jay-Z and Beyoncé's matching his and hers bidets?"
Matty: "Jigga Man's bidet."

Sergio: "Does this look like a telephone company to you? We make records here. This is not Cingular Wireless. Anybody here know anything about Cingular's wireless broadband, any of that fucking phone shit?"
