I went and saw Get Him To The Greek last night and my immediate reaction was: is that it? Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed my time in the theater, but Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of my favorite comedies in the last several years so I guess I expected a little more. I wanted to leave the theater wanting to see it again and I didn’t.
The one part of the movie that I loved the most was how ridiculous it portrayed the music business. I worked at a label for 4 years right out of college and spent another year working with the biggest star on the planet during that time (no I won’t name names – most of you know though) and the writers pegged the biz perfectly. It’s a total mind f**k. Artists are like babies that have to be coddled day and night. When they’re hot they’re hot and when they’re not they’re not.
2.5 out of 5 stars
