For a comedy, Get Him to the Greek fails to deliver a great number of laughs, and also does not tell a particularly interesting story. There are some good moments in this film, usually when Diddy is on screen, yet there are a number of moments that fall flat. Nevertheless, this is a decent film, just don't go in expecting great things. Expand

The film lacks the snap and wit of earlier Jud Aptow attempts but fall short because the writer couldn't decided which of two storylines was more interesting -- a gross out rock n roll comedy or a tender love story -- so the film The film lacks the snap and wit of earlier Jud Aptow attempts but fall short because the writer couldn't decided which of two storylines was more interesting -- a gross out rock n roll comedy or a tender love story -- so the film unwisely tries to do both and fails at doing either well.

Essentially just a buddy/road flick. Pretty funny at times, but like "I Love You Man" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", the comedy is undermined by a sappy, mopey message/moral like an Afterschool Special.

this was suppose to be a commedy right? well why isnt it that funny? russel brand who isnt a bad stand up commidien and jonah hill is known to be pretty funny. yet they are out done by of all people Pdiddy who of all people i would expect tothis was suppose to be a commedy right? well why isnt it that funny? russel brand who isnt a bad stand up commidien and jonah hill is known to be pretty funny. yet they are out done by of all people Pdiddy who of all people i would expect to be the least funniest person to be in a commedy film . the story its self is mildly entertaining having russell brand play a washed up singer trying to make a play back into the industry and having jonah hill try to keep him in check but the commedy between the two is pretty flat . they do have a few decent funny moments but they are all out done by Pdiddy which i know if you havent seen this you are thinking thats got to a be a bunch of BS but its true , Expand

P. Diddy was the only funny thing about this movie. Rest of the movie was pretty much pointless and boring. Jonah Hill and Russell Brand were retarded as always, unfunny dull characters.

A very watchable film, but it just doesn't reach the heights set by its predecessor Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

However this film doesA very watchable film, but it just doesn't reach the heights set by its predecessor Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I also find it extremely strange that Jonah Hill plays two completely different characters in the two films. However this film does have its funny points, especially Brand who has another stormer. However Jonah Hill would perhaps be more comfortable in a similar-ish role to Brand's rather than the more serious role that he played. I think he struggled a little. Expand

It isn't terrible, but it needed better writing. It was hit-or-miss humor. Example: the african child bit is hilarious, the jamming drugs up one's ass in the middle of an airport is silly and sophomoric.

The character played by Russel Brand is more annoying this time around. He might be best as a supporting character. Expand

P. Diddy steals the show, Russel Brand's character wears thin fast. Where in Forgetting Sarah Marshall he's hilarious in small doses.

GET HIM TO THE GREEK is a good comedy film, even though there are many funny moments, I felt disappointed after I watched it.

Some top-notch direction and an interesting, original story help to make Get Him to the Greek more watchable than the script would allow on its own.

The gags are all centred around drugs, alcohol and sex, which are mostly handled crudely; allowing for little variety, even in the many farcical situations the two leads find themselves in. The cast put up an acceptable performance, though Jonah Hill's awkward deadpan can become a little tiring. As stated, the direction is excellent -- especially for a comedy -- but the writing is just too dependent on the audience's tolerance of Brand's ego to be consistently enjoyable. Expand

A one trick pony of sex and drugs that gets old very quickly. Russell Brand is a horrible actor that needs to stay off the screen. Had some laughs here and there but Get Him to the Greek is a below average film.

It's surprisingly good acting and worthwhile thematic elements make up for some undoubtedly awkward moments.
