In "Get Him to the Greek," Russell Brand reprises his role as the wild-maned and out-of-control rock star from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (a movie I'd like to forget). This time out, hilarity ensues when the easily-flummoxed Jonah Hill is charged with getting Brand's character - you guessed it - to the Greek Theater in L.A.
But the poster works. Really. I know exactly that this movie's about and why I want to see it. It's also clearly the modern version of "My Favorite Year," a great movie with Peter O'Toole, whose larger-than-life character imparts a lifetime of wisdom to his much-younger handler.
Unfortunately, the most interesting thing about Brand is that he gets to see Katy Perry naked. Judd Apatow's team knows how to make hit comedies - they keep making the same one, again and again (and again) - and "Greek" has summer hit written all over it.
