Get Him To The Greek And Its Plot And Critical Reviews

By Connor Sullivan

Most movies these days are shot using a mix of indoor and outdoor sets. When filming is happening outside, typically the producers, directors and other people involved in making the movie choose to use mainly natural light of the sun while reflecting it where they want it to go. However, when inside there must be different forms of lighting used; such as fluorescent lighting and sometimes the light schemes are complicated and include people who have the sole task of doing, interior lighting design. One of the films recently released to the world is a film called, Get Him to the Greek, starring an English comedian Russell Brand and American Jonah Hill.

The movie is a comedy film and meant to be something of a spinoff of the movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which was in theaters a few years ago. It isn’t exactly a sequel to, Forgetting Sarah Marshall because even though Russell Brand plays the same character, hard partying rock star Aldous Snow of the band Infant Sorrow, the other actor starring in this film, Jonah Hill, doesn’t retain his role from, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. While this is slightly confusing and doesn’t actually make a whole lot of sense, it’s probably ok for the viewer to just forget this minor detail and enjoy the comedy of the movie rather than sit and poke holes in the plot, which is of course easier for some people than it is for others.

The plot revolves around a young intern at a record label, Jonah Hill, lying a little bit in his resume to get his dream job and then landing a big assignment right away. His difficult assignment is to take rocker Aldous Snow, who has recently rediscovered partying and drinking after a failed single release and subsequent break up with his girlfriend, from London and get him to the Greek theater in Los Angeles. While at face value, many people would expect this to be a simple movie with gross out humor and typical jokes that people would expect for summer, teenage oriented comedy films, many critical analyses have in fact suggested that it’s more of a satire on the life of many rock stars. In fact, the film is said to have an excellent message deep down which implies that the rock star life isn’t nearly what many of the people in it claim it to be and can often lead to bad things.

Actually, Get Him to the Greek is one of the most positively reviewed comedies of the year and many people are saying it is one of the funniest movies of the 2010 movie season so far. The movie has actually been critically acclaimed by such critics from such famous papers as the New Yorker and such famed movie critics as Richard Roeper.

While humor from producer of, Get Him to the Greek Judd Apatow, who also produced movies such as, The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, isn’t for everyone it is generally well liked and well reviewed. Anybody who is even kind of a fan of Russell Brand or previous Apatow works should probably spend the time and money to go check out, Get Him to the Greek.

Connor R. Sullivan recently searched the internet for a Fluorescent lighting for a home remodeling job he and his wife are completing in an order to become environmentally sound. He and his wife found the perfect interior lighting design to use in the kitchen.
