Jonah Hill though comes across a lot more reserved and constrained than in Superbad or Knocked Up. Not that he’s a complete over the top, ham it up for the screen, douchebag (depending on who you ask), but here he comes off as both hysterical and sympathetic. His hot and cold relationship with his girlfriend gives Jonah a chance to stretch his acting chops into self-loathing and pity, which is usually right there next to comedy.
In the end, I felt the story was kind of thrown together. “Where can we have these two guys go next? What kind of shenanigans should these guys get involved in next?” is the kind of structure that turned me off of the movie. Not to say that I didn’t enjoy it. Throughout, I had some quality laughs, particularly with P. Diddy. Aziz Ansari is always hilarious, no matter the amount of screen time he gets. There was also a nice nod to Sarah Marshall that I thought was…..cute.

Feature Commentary with director Nicholas Stoller, cast members Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Moss and producer Rodney Rothman - Watching and listening to this with the cast, director and producer actually made me enjoy the movie a lot more. We get funny anecdotes, some good natured ribbing, and plenty of factoids that made me rethink my position on the film.
Documentaries: Getting To Get Him to The Greek Documentary - We get a look at the some behind the scenes shenanigans including table reads and footage on set.

Musical performances from The Today Show and VH-1 Storytellers -Mock interviews for the purpose of the movie. In this context, I didn't mind these so much. Like I said, I like Brand and I guess I just pick my spots with him.
