Forget Russell Brand, who plays a sinewy rock star in Get Him to the Greek, and his porcine sidekick Jonah Hill. The reviews are in, and the performance drawing the most rave reviews is that of economic rock star Paul Krugman. "Welcome to your comedy career!" the Dallas Morning News exhorts the New York Times columnist, whose cameo, his always-objective employer notes, "jolt[s] the movie back to life ... when comic action starts to flag." But don't worry, you won't have to wait in line at the theater and pay $8 to see the tour de force everyone's talking about! Thanks to the Internet-wrangling skills of Vulture's Willa Paskin, you can watch a crappy, camcorder-recorded version of what some guy on the Internet believes is "the funniest thing in an otherwise disappointing movie" right here in the comfort of your own screen! Enjoy!
