Movie Club: 'Get Him to the Greek' at the Vista
This week, Movie Club will take in the Russell Brand-Jonah Hill rock comedy "Get Him to the Greek" at the Vista Theater in Hollywood at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The film, which also stars Mr. Sean Combs, has gotten reviews from the likes of the New York Times, Houston Chronicle and Philadelphia Inquirer touting it as a fun romp and mentioning the excellence of the supporting cast. The Times' own Betsy Sharkey differed a bit in saying that the "film's funny and compelling moments are overshadowed by all the raunchiness." Well that's what critics do -- they critique. We'll get reactions from the people. To start you off, here's the trailer.
Unlike many of our costuming adventures -- from "Robin Hood" to "Prince of Persia" -- our choice of attire for this outing shouldn't be too outrageous. We'll be the guys with a camera, asking for opinions. And, speaking of opinions, we have another showdown coming up for next weekend with "The A-Team" vs. "The Karate Kid" vs. "Winter's Bone."
