This film will make you laugh for days!!!
this is one of the funniest movies ive seen in a longg time- its about time they make a true comedy again-
At its heart this is another Apatow latereport this review for TOS violationing off age movie. Everyman officially has moved from Tom Hanks to Jonah Hill - I shudder to think what that means. But he's really good and convincing in the most random and insane situations. Most of thosereport this review for TOS violatione from Russell Brand's rock star character Aldous Snow (is that Aldous Huxley meets Aurora Snow?) - part rock savant, part purveyor of petty musical porn. But he is amazing in the role. And Seanreport this review for TOS violationbs is brilliant. He's so good you realize he totally gets his own mythology and and can stick it to the whole business. As does the movie. It's pointed, unlikely, slapstick, disgusting, hilarious and sweet. And you never know where it's going to head next.A real bonus is the wonderful Elizabeth Moss (sooo good in Mad Men) as the unlikely girlfriend to Hill. The threesome attempted between these three characters in the bedroom says a lot about the class of decades. Brilliant and unrelenting.

Brand's rocker Aldous Snow is reeling both professionally and personally. His latest album is a bomb, and his girlfriend has left him, sending him into a booze, drug and women fueled tailspin. Jonah Hill's record exec Aaron is sent by his boss (Puffy, actually really good for once in an acting role) to London to pick up Aldous and deliver him to Los Angeles for areport this review for TOS violationeback concert. The film is essentially a road trip, as the narcissistic, hedonistic Snow takes the nervous nebbish down the road of excess.
In a movie like this, the plot matters much less than the characters and the situations they are put in. Luckily this movie is constantly surprising and often hilarious. Hill tones down his normally overexcited persona and grounds the character in reality, so that when he succ**bs to the excesses of Aldous, it'sreport this review for TOS violationpletely believable. Aldous is a great character, symbolizing everything that is great and wrong about rock and roll (the opening of the film showing "African Child", Aldous' bomb of a record, was a highlight for me) is so well written and the actor plays him with such gusto that it's hard to know if Brand is playing Aldous or if Aldous IS Brand. Watching these two get to LA was a trip I really enjoyed being on.
I thought the movie lived up to the trailers. The acting is terrific with the lone exception of pditty who should go hide in a cave.
