I don’t think there is a sequel, or day I say, spin off, that I have been waiting for more since Willow 2- Revenge of the Peck… However that film never came to fruition, but Get Him To The Greek, the official spin off to Forgetting Sarah Marshall has. With the same director and producers with a most excellent R rating, you have Jonah Hill as a record company intern with the task of getting the very famous (“Yes, for my sins..”) Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) back from England to the Greek Theater in LA….Although Sarah Marshall didn’t bank as highly as Superbad and Knocked Up, it was reviewed with A’s all across the board and I believe is the superior comedy. The thing that makes me nervous about this film is the “in your face”, crazy gross out, over the top humor, while FSM was affixed with much more dialogue driven humor (Not to mention several well placed penis shots).
I thought it would be much funnier if Jonah Hill reprised his role from FSM, the overly obsessed waiter who was borderline gay for Aldous Snow, and whenever they interacted it was terrific chemistry. But now it looks like Hill will be playing another character….Just as well…Can’t fucken Wait!!
