GET HIM TO THE DANE
This clip, from the forthcoming Judd Apatow-produced comedy Get Him to the Greek, isn’t all that funny. I’m hoping that’s just because Lars Ulrich is in it, and everything Lars touches these days turns to whatthefuck. Because it would be really neat if this movie was actually funny. It’s a de facto sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall (like Marshall, it was directed by Nicholas Stoller, and Russell Brand plays the same character he did in Marshall – although Jonah Hill, who was also in that movie, does not), and I enjoyed Sarah Marshall. I also really like Jonah Hill; the more shlubby, Jew-y, nerdy-looking movie stars we have, the easier it is for me to get laid. (Although nothing will ever get you into a woman’s pants faster than whispering “I run a metal blog” in her ear.) And I forgive Russell Brand for looking like a fucking alien. YOU LOOK LIKE A FUCKING ALIEN, RUSSELL BRAND. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOUR HEAD?!?!?
In any case, the movie can’t be any worse than The Darwin Awards, Ulrich’s last bid to win an Oscar. I already like that Greek takes place in a world where he’s not with Connie Nielsen, because in that world, she’s available. And if she’ll date a midget like Ulrich, then, y’know, we all have a shot. Or she really likes money. But it’s definitely one of the two.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOUR HEAD, RUSSELL BRAND?!?!?
Get Him to the Greek comes out June 4. I’ve put the full trailer after the jump in case you wanna know what the other 89 minutes of this movie are about.
