Instead of reviewing the plot to one of the funniest movies of the year, which can be found in all other reviews, I will focus on what you get with this 2-disc Blu-Ray edition.

This set includes both the theatrical and an unrated version, which includes approximately 4 additional minutes.

Additional Features:
3 Documentaries -
"Getting Him to the Greek" which includes behind the scenes clips and interviews with the cast and crew
"Getting in Tune with the Greek" the writing and recording of the music of 'Infant Sorrow'
"The Making of African Child" a look at the making of the music video

Music extras -
Hilarious music videos for 5 songs from the film
Concert footage of the performances of 7 additional songs
Karaoke! Sing along with 15 of Aldous Snow's hits

Alternate Ending - "Riding Daphne" (VERY entertaining!)

Audio Commentary - the feature length commentary includes Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Elisabeth Moss, Rose Byrne, director Nicholas Stoller, and producer Rodney Rothman.

Also includes - Deleted and extended scenes, alternate intro 'The Castle,' two gag reels, Line-o-Rama, and cast auditions.

If you liked the movie you will not be disappointed with this Collector's Edition.

This movie surpassed by expectations. It looked funny from the previews I'd seen and it was WAY better than I expected. Watching it never gets old. The only moderately negative thing I could say about it is do NOT watch this one with your parents or parents do not watch with your children. I'm 23 and would be exceedingly uncomfortable if my parents watched this with me.

Brand and Hill are great, but P. Diddy steals the show in some scenes.

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.

Sergio (Sean Combs) is looking for the next big thing to bring in revenue for Pinnacle Records. Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) suggests that they bring Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to the Greek Theater in Los Angeles for the tenth anniversary of his last live concert there, which was the highest selling live album of all time. As a result Sergio sets up the concert and gives Aaron the task of escorting Aldous from London to Los Angeles in 72 hours. But since Aldous is off the wagon getting him there might be a little harder than Aaron imagined.

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.

Funny movie, but not for under 18 years old. Better than Sara Marshall, better than Hang Over slightly. The Russell Brand Character from SM is the center of this wild Rock and Roll fantasy. Jonah Hill has to get Brand to LA for a concert or it's his career. Drugs and sex orgy from London to NY to Vegas, to LA. Be prepared for nudity, adult situations and creative gross outs. P-Diddy, Russell Brand are all energy.

Crass, crude, vulgar and graphic... what a perfect combination for humor. Jonah Hill and Russel Brand are a fantastic mix of commedy (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and that same chemistry payed dividends again in the separate story in the same timeline. If you're offended easily, stay away. If you love booze, boobs, inappropriate profiling and profanity... get it like I did and laugh your butt off.

I loved Brand in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but Segel's script for that looks like Shakespeare compared to some of this. RB was allowed to improv heavily in FSM and it injected real energy into his scenes. Here he's either working mostly from the flaccid script, or just couldn't reach his previous heights. Perhaps now that he's a real star, as opposed to on the cusp as in FSM, his brio is gone-o.

Hill is good here, but at this rate he's going to have to change his name to Jonah Mountain. It's kind of painful to watch someone eat himself into morbidly obese territory, film by film, especially as he can be quite funny at times. John Candy and Chris Farley showed where that road leads; must we see their story yet again? It would be nice to watch Hill for another 20 years, not 2. His weight makes his role here even more unbelievable; if you know the super-phony worlds of the music biz and L.A., you know that very few guys looking like him ever get past Assistant to the VP of Nothing status.

On that note, however, Puffy delivers the best performance in the film. He's truly funny at times and gave me most of the best laughs here. The guy's got real comic presence. More, please! (But why does a multi-millionaire with six kids have a 16-cubic-foot fridge?)

Brand does have his moments, but all in all I felt let down. Then again, his stand-up dvd isn't that funny, though his autobiography does have moments of genius. Who knows? Maybe he peaked with FSM and it's all downhill from there. The rock-star cliches can only be milked for so long, and then one must actually deliver some depth. Brand has the intellect to do it; let's hope his next vehicle shows more humor than this.

There's a LOT of drug usage here, so if that offends you, better avoid this.
