Get Him to the Greek
For all it's faults (and there are plenty) Get Him to the Greek left me with a good feeling. I credit the performances. Jonah Hill and Sean Combs do a nice job, but the shining star is Russell Brand. Reprising the role of Aldous Snow, from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Brand is emotional, enchanting and enthralling. From his delivery, to his body movement, to his voice, I really enjoyed his screen time. The "let's try to wrangle and rehab the rock star" story worked well for me. Worth a look.
