Lip Sync Battle preview videos are here! This week, Malin Akerman (forever Silk Spectre II) silently mouths words against Stephen Merchant, executive producer of the show, and all around hilarious writer of such shows as The Office and Extras. The clips show Malin Akerman performing “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard in a catsuit (Meow!), and Stephen Merchant showcasing his derriere to Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” (NOT Meow!). Now don’t let the fact that you may not know who Stephen Merchant is deter you from watching. I too, had no idea, until one fine day on YouTube, looking up lip sync battle clips from Jimmy Fallon shows, and came across a gem of a three-way: Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs. Stephen Merchant vs. Jimmy Fallon. I was hooked immediately.
Watch the two preview clips plus the aforementioned gem below.
So did you like Forgetting Sarah Marshall? Are you a fan of Russell Brand and Jonah Hill? If you said yes to either of those, than you probably have already watched Get Him to the Greek. If you have seen other Judd Apatow films, you probably won’t be very shocked at what was brought to the table by this movie but if you like that kind of thing this will definitely be a movie you will enjoy.
I really have to say that I was very impressed by the writing in this movie. Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller did a great job with almost all of the dialogue and the situations were extremely funny. I was not as big a fan of the directing and some of the acting could have used a little work, but overall the movie was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it a lot.
Speaking of acting, the cast in the movie was extremely packed. I would say a majority of the budget was probably spent on casting alone. Some highlights outside of the two main characters are Aziz Ansari, Sean Combs, Zoe Salmon, Lars Ulrich, Pink, Billy Bush, Kurt Loder, Christina Aguilera, Elisabeth Moss, and many many more. Overall the some of the most fun in the movie is the different cast members and the cameos that you have to constantly look out for. This all coupled with some high quality comedy makes for a really fun comedy and a great summer movie.
Well let’s get to it guys. It’s time for the SPOILER TALK! Below are my spoiler laden thoughts about Get Him to the Greek and even farther below that is the comment section is where you can leave your thoughts about the movie as well.
