Surprisingly intelligent rock satire literally has sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.
You need to know that "Get Him to the Greek" is a spinoff from cliched romcom "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". It focuses on the minor character Aldous Snow. However, "Get Him to the Greek" is much more original, intelligent and hilarious than its prequel, which you don't even have to watch in order to understand this movie.
It is a clever satire about rock star Aldous Snow, whose last album was unseccessful and now after 10 years gives a comeback concert.
He is a very impolite, sex-driven drug addict who is not always easy to handle. The shy record company intern Aaron Green now has to bring him to Greek Theatre...
The movie is not always funny, it also has its serious moments.
Though Aldous seems to be okay and only interested in sex, drugs and parties, he also had a very complicated life.
Though the main characters are very different, each of them learns something from the other.
Also, the soundtrack is great, feauturing the superb "Bangers, Beans & Mash" or the excellent "Furry Walls", sung by Brand himself.
Surprisingly intelligent, but also funny, "Get Him to the Greek" is a very good comedy i really recommend.
The movie is sexual, features strong sexual language, and has strong drug use.
Though there is not much on-screen sex, the dialogue is very explicit.
The songs are mostly hyper-sexual and "African Child" is kind of racist and profane (this is not depicted good, anyway).
Thoughout the whole movie, there is no full frontal nudity, and brief scene of breasts.
There is one scene, in which a threesome is seen, but this is played for laughs and again, no nudity.
A girl and a man have sex in a toilet.
A girl shows her pubic hair to a man (no nudity), then takes out a sex toy and implyingly shoves it up a man's anus.
The movie has surprisingly strong violence, too. A man is stabbed in the chest and we see the bloody results.
(SPOILERS may follow:)
A man hits his arm against a swimming pool, the water turns red and later we see he has a bone sticking out of the bloody wound.
There are strong scenes of drug addiction, mostly for comical effect.
However, at the end the protagonist becomes sober and is not a drug addict anymore
