  1. When the movie remembers to be the drug-spiked, hard-R comedy you hope for, it’s more than just a fun romp (and, incidentally, superior to "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," the rom-com from which its Britpop libertine spins off).
  2. The seriously out-of-control hard R dude is writer-director Nicholas Stoller, who apparently has major trust issues with his odd-couple stars, women and the audience. Did I forget anybody?

    There's no buildup, no narrative arc, just one scene of comically debauched partying after another.

    Like most of the recent exports from Apatown, Get Him To The Greek -- aka Russell Brand’s My Filmy Wilm -- is patchy, but home-run hilarious from time to time. If only it didn’t detour into darkness so often, this could have been a genuine treat.

    Brand's character, who combines Bono's moral sanctimony with Keith Richards' supernatural hedonism, ultimately doesn't add up.
  6. Never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.
  7. The film feels like a collection of sketches instead of a mad, three-day, drug-and-sex-infused whirl.

    Shaggily amusing but familiar and way-too-long.

    Before it goes off the rails into strained sermonizing, this sorta-sequel to 2008’s delightful "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" gets in big laughs.

    Unlike its forebears, "Greek" lacks a truly sympathetic central character to hold things together when it's time to get sappy.
  11. 50
    An uneven but surprising movie, often outrageously funny and just as often completely flat.

    This final act goes on far too long and devolves into such a miasma of pap that it's clear Stoller had no idea how to wrap things up.

Jonah Hill is disappointingGet Him to the Greek lacks the heart of Forgetting Sarah Marshall but retains the witty style of gross-out comedy. Jonah Hill is disappointing here as he is a very talented comedian and Russell Brand has become a yoga-loving L.A. bum. He's always been such an idol to me. Full Review »

    I think what's most impressive surrounding the film is the soundtrack that was prepared for it.

Russell Brand can out-sing his girl, Katy Perry in spades, while at the same time managing a hilarious act throughout the film. Unfortunately, Jonah Hill still can't make me laugh. Full Review »

    Get Him To The Greek is a brilliant film, combining outlandish behavior, regrettably nostalgic moments, and humorous emotion.

Jonah Hill and Russell Brand are a hilarious duo, complimenting each other throughout this wild crazy roller coaster ride. If you want a comedy, watch this movie. Full Review »
