Jonah Hill and Russell Brand reunite with the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall in this outrageous comedy about Aaron Green (Hill), an aspiring music executive, who has 72 hours to deliver the wild rock legend, Aldous Snow (Brand), from London to Los Angeles for a comeback concert. In order to keep his job, Aaron must navigate a minefield of mayhem and debauchery to get Snow to the world famous Greek Theatre on time! From the producer of Knocked Up and Superbad comes the movie that’s “a raucous, rowdy good time” (Ty Burr, The Boston Globe).

Original buddy comedy is full of drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is a spinoff of Forgetting Sarah Marshall focusing on that comedy's breakout character, musician Aldous Snow. This is yet another hard-R comedy produced by Judd Apatow's comedy machine, including his protege Jason Segel. Like in Sarah Marshall, the Snow character (and everyone around him) curses up a storm and acts like a substance-abusing narcissist who only thinks of partying and having sex. There is lots and lots of strong language (nearly every scene has an F-bomb in it), drinking to excess (vomit included), smoking marijuana, smuggling heroine, and having or talking about sex (including a woman-on-man rape scene played for laughs), threesomes, and venereal diseases. On a positive note, the movie does conclude that a rock star lifestyle is shallow and insignificant, and that it's the creation and performing of music that should be meaningful to an artist -- not the stuff and the partying. Parents should know that this review refers to the R-rated version -- the unrated version pushes all the limits even further.
