* YouLookFamiliar: Most obviously, Jonah Hill's main character is different than the guy he played in ''Sarah Marshall'', but Carla Gallo (the "Gag Me" girl) here plays Destiny, and Da'Vone Mcdonald, the bartender Dwayne in the first movie, plays Sergio's security guard.
** [[LateToThePunchline Destiny & The "Gag Me" Girl are (probably) the same person.]]
** Dwayne does mention he moved from South Central LA to Oahu in ''Sarah Marshall'', so the security guard (who is based in LA) could be his twin brother or something.

* UglyGuyHotWife: Creator/ElisabethMoss is fairly good looking while Jonah Hill is downright unattractive. In Hill's defence Aaron spends the majority of the film exhausted, stressed out and drugged up so he was probably deliberately made up to look uglier than normal, but even so the disparity in their attractiveness is noticeable.
** The attraction from her side is explained a little after he makes a joke and she smiles and says "You're funny." and drifts off to sleep.
** Still very much this trope. Countless movies have taught us that funniness in a man can outweigh any physical unattractiveness. Not so much for women, of course.
** Well, Jonah Hill CAN look good at times, even if he is overweight. Thing is, in this movie Hill is downright OBESE. Whereas he was just "fat" in ''Superbad'', ''Sarah Marshall'', and ''Walk Hard'', Hill had seriously put on the pounds since and it really [[IncrediblyLamePun outweighed]] his attractiveness.
** This one's definitely a case of YMMV, as there are quite a few people who think Hill looked very good in this film (it helps that he lost the Jew-fro). Also, "fat" and "attractive" are not mutually exclusive.
** Definite YMMV. A lot of people would disagree with Elisabeth Moss being vastly hotter than Jonah Hill. She's not unattractive, of course, but there's not really that much of a looks-discrepancy between her and Jonah to fit the traditional mould of hot-wife-ugly-husband.

In Hill's defence Aaron spends the majority of the film exhausted, stressed out character gets more disheveled and drugged up so he was probably deliberately made up to look uglier than normal, but even so the disparity appears in their a manner that downplay whatever attractiveness is noticeable.

* MushroomSamba: When Aaron puts his foot down about getting Aldous back to his room for rest, Aldous agrees, but adds that they'll each have one shot of absinthe and then go to bed. What follows is Aaron's second crazy night, in which he hallucinates Sergio's disembodied head eating itself.

* Creator/JuddApatow: Yet another of his productions.



* NamesTheSame: Sergio Roma is awfully similar to San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: It's hard to imagine Aldous's generic, oversexed popstar love interest doesn't draw some inspiration from KatyPerry.

* RealitySubtext: In his younger years, Russel Brand used to be a drug addict, a heavy drinker and a complete mess in general. The actor [[WordOfGod stated on many occasions]] that Aldous Snow is a [[ExaggeratedTrope hyperbolic]] version of himself in his 20's.

Jonah Hill is Aaron Green, a record company intern who has just been given the moment of a lifetime: Haul infamous [[BritishRockStar Britrock libertine]] Aldous Snow to the States in time for his 10th Anniversary concert at L.A.'s prestigious Greek Theater. Considering Jonah Hill's character is a massive Aldous Snow fan, and all he has to do is escort the playboy, this gig shouldn't be too much of a hassle, right?

''Get Him To The Greek'' is a SpinOff movie for RussellBrand's Aldous Snow persona from ''ForgettingSarahMarshall'', a previous joint from Creator/JuddApatow and Creator/JasonSegel. Expanding upon the former film's depiction, Brand hits upon every British rock star stereotype as often as Hill exemplifies the harried and harassed music industry newbie. In addition, P. Diddy appears as Sergio Roma, a lunatic record exec with a fondness for [[FurAndLoathing animal fur]] and 6 kids who all need Air Jordans.

* DullSurprise: ElisabethMoss, most of the time. Completely [[JustifiedTrope justified]]: she's clearly using it to portray her character--another intern--as so overworked and drowsy that she ''cannot'' express emotions normally.
