(out of 5)

The first five minutes of the film, which fictionally recreate celebrity mayhem coverage using  and  as out-of-control pop stars, are so hysterically funny that it hurts that much more when the film decides to focus instead on  and his painful lack of charisma. Hill plays a bumbling music company employee who tries to impress his boss by putting together a concert in which he swears he can get the participation of Brand, who has fallen from grace and deeply into his own excesses. The voyage from London to Los Angeles’s Greek theatre comprises a voyage of silly antics and contrived situations that are made so much more execrable by an unnecessary focus on Hill’s personal life (who cares about his relationship with his girlfriend?) and his painfully bad dialogue delivery (the monotone-voice, wide-eyed thing was great for a few scenes of Knocked Up…a full movie of it is up there in the pleasure department with waterboarding and sleeping on beds of nails).
