REVIEW:

Of course this is a comedy and it's #1 goal is to make us laugh. Which is does! I was pleasantly surprised with this film.

But Get Him to the Greek also brought up a lot of memories for me. Happy memories and sad/regrettable memories as I am like the main character Russell Brand plays. No, I am not a rock star, but I am a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. So when watching this film about a man who goes back on the wagon for more fun, I just hoped they stayed true to the integrity of addiction and what happens after the fun is over. And the fun goes away pretty quickly.

Here are the 6 stages of emotion when you go in a drinking/drug binge:

Step #1 - Feelings of confidence and happiness. You've jumpstarted into a new sensation.

Step #2 - Feelings of cockiness and determination. You now have that dangerous feeling that you can take on the world and do anything you want.

Step #3 - Feelings or euphoria and a hyper exotic sense. You feel that you are God and that the world is in the palm of your hand.

(these three steps were showed in the film and of course these are great moments of comedy)

Step #4 - Feelings of exhaustion and confusion. You are coming down from your highs and doing more drugs isn't changing things. It's actually making it worse.

Step #5 - Feelings of sadness and you then become full of regret after what you just did hours/days previous.

Step #6 - Feelings of pure loneliness and suicidal thoughts. Why keep on living? These are such painful and dark feelings you don't know what to do. So many of us begin step #1 to get over it.

So while watching Get Him to the Greek, I wondered and worried if they were going to attempt steps 3 to 6 because after all, this is a comedy and those aren't comedic moments no matter how clever they place the camera lens.

But they pulled it off and many of us will feel happy and satisfied after watching this film. They kept things in the world of realism while also entertaining us, and that's not a easy thing to do in the world of the comedy genre.

Personally, I wish they went a little edgier, especially during the Las Vegas encountering the father (aka when all the fun disappears) moments. They easily could of moved closer to some Boogie Nights moments and less Knocked Up moments; but that's just me.

I'm sure the studios were worried about these scenes and finding that line between entertaining people and making them feel uncomfortable. It's a fine line and Get Him to the Greek isn't a classic comedy like it could of been because I think they didn't trust it's audience enough.

Saying that, this is a solid comedy and people should see it.

In conclusion, I am worried about Jonah Hill. He's a young, talented actor and he was distracting us with his obese size in this film. He just looked really unhealthy and his fatness wasn't jolly at all. That boy needs to go on a diet because I would be really upset if he becomes another John Candy. An actor just entering his prime but can't pass up the munchies on the craft truck film sets.
