Storyline

Aaron Greenberg (Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 23-year-old has exaggerated his way into a dream job just in time for a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.s Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a $100-million tour.

His warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril. British rocker Aldous Snow (Brand) is both a brilliant musician and walking sex. Weary of yes men and piles of money, the former front man is searching for the meaning of life. But that doesnt mean he cant have a few orgies while he finds it. When he learns his true love is in California, Aldous makes it his quest to win her backright before kick-starting his world domination.

As the countdown to the concert begins, one intern must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

Trivia

2010 Guide Analysis: "A spin-off from 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" featuring Russell Brand reprising his scene-stealing Aldous Snow character, the film also reunites director Nicholas Stoller and co-star Jonah Hill who actually plays a new character this time around. A bunch of musicians are also set to cameo including Pink, Christina Aguilera, P. Diddy and Katy Perry.

Despite the various controversies that have plagued him, Brand's appeal is arguably stronger than ever and has successfully crossed the Atlantic in a way a lot of other UK actors and comedians have failed to achieve. Thus a re-teaming with the Apatow camp comes as no surprise, but there's always a danger in moving strong supporting characters to the fore and watering down their appeal, Johnny Depp's role in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels for instance.

Some confusion has also emerged over the title which has varied between "Get Him to the Greek" and "Get Me to the Gig" with the later looking certain to be the international title as barely anyone outside the US has heard of LA's Greek theatre. 'Greek' may still be used States-side though."
