A fast-paced, hilarious comedy. 4/5 stars

Reprising their characters from 2003's Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Russell Brand's British rock star and Jonah Hill's American prove a great comedy double act.

Hill is now working for sour-faced music executive Sean Combs (hilarious) and he's given the thankless task of getting drink-and-drug fuelled Brand from London to LA for a comeback show at the Greek Theatre.

Naturally, getting Brand to the plane on time proves extremely tricky...

What follows is a gross-out, madcap race against time and, with both stars firing on all cylinders and making the most of every crude gag on offer, this is a wickedly funny lark.
