If you liked the movie you will not be disappointed with this Collector's Edition.
Right up there with Superbad, American Pie, the Hangover and Caddyshack.
Only "off" part was the end...look like they were desperate to wrap it up.
The character of Aldous Snow was first conjured up by Jason Segel and brought to life by Russell Brand in the 2008 movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Not too long after the release of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, director Nick Stoller announced they would be doing a spin off movie based on Aldous Snow falling off the wagon, and that movie would star Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, albeit, in a different role than Hill played Marshall. While the idea seemed intriguing, and the character of Aldous was brilliant in Marshall, I have to admit I had some reservations about the idea of a spinoff focusing on Aldous as a main character. So how did the movie turn out?
It turns out I had nothing to worry about. While the premise might sound a bit contrived at first (and the trailers don't help that feeling when you see Combs's character bring it up) the plotting feels nothing less than organic. While at times over the top, it never truly feels over the top, making the world these characters live in feel real. Part of the reason for that is the characters have been perfectly rounded out.Read more ›
Now the (very) bad: the plotline was terrible. It felt slapdash and poorly thought out. The ending was very meh - boring, preachy, and clichéd. I felt like a strict Mormon parent edited this for appropriate content - essentially killing the positivity and complexity of Aldous Snow.
Characters' personalities and backstories changed with annoying frequency. The rock 'n roll hijinx were predictable, boring, and incredibly amateur. Again, Puritanical editing/writing killed all the fun. Tedious in the manner of a high school sophomore's "Dude I was so *wasted* last night" stories. Heads up screenwriters: vomiting in and of itself does not a good/"crazy rock 'n roll" story make. There was a (much toned down) blatant ripoff of a Pulp Fiction scene - very lazy screenwriting. Very disappointing
This is essentially writer/director Nicholas Stoller's "African Child". (You'll 'get it' when/if you see this movie). Or terrible producer maybe? I dunno but something went wrong.
Bottom line/summary: Aldous Snow deserved bigger, better, and much more clever. It's a pity this film fell so flat. It was a great opportunity for something really clever and hilarious, and I would love to know sometime what happened to make it, well, not.
That said, again - if you're a fan of Brand or Hill, it's worth a watch for them. Despite the script, they're still very funny guys.

Very funny, simple movie to lift your spirits if you're not in the mood to think too much.Published 9 days ago by Dalton
Funny, but my DVD was scratched when I received it so movie stopped half way and couldn't finish the movie.Published 15 days ago by Megan P
For a comedy I'd give it 6.5 out of 10. The actors seem to play similar character types in all their films. To me. It's worth the rental, not the purchase.Published 21 days ago by Joey B
Great movie. So funny. I laughed all the way through. Russell Brand was born to play this character, and Jonah Hill is spot on as usual. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Tammy R Slayton
As usual, the main characters in this movie are probably NC17 or R rated but never fail to crack me up! Put the kids to bed early and watch this! :)Published 1 month ago by Michelle
