Dan's Review of Get Him to the Greek
Get Him to the Greek(2010)
"I'm mind fucking you right now."
"Well then, you might want to wear a condomn, because I have a dirty mind."
I love this kind of silliness. I love comedies that make me laugh and I think it's almost too bad that critics seem to rate comedies on a different level than drama. If I was looking at this movie for its themes and messages this movie might have a 70%, but seeing as I didn't come in to Get Him to the Greek for a piece of complex cinema, I enjoyed my ass off.
The movie's lead characters are funny and so is the witty script. The movie delights in moving from one insane scenario to the next with the two leads playing off each other very well in a fresh, non-stereotypical way. Plus, the "furry rug" action sequence is worth seeing by itself. Easily the funniest part of the movie. So irreverent in such a good way.
I reccomend this movie very highly to everyone. My only complaint is really a preference in comedy. I'm not much for "sex" humor and so some of the scenes just felt awkward for me but I easily overlooked those because of the movie's inane sense of humor.
