  1. So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.
  2. 80
    The movie’s story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention.
  3. A clever rock-world satire, with some lively take-offs on the TMZ-gossip magazine circus, but it's also too long, and by the time of the inevitable Las Vegas sequence, it starts to grow repetitive.
  4. 70
    As in "My Favorite Year," the laughs all come from seeing a nervous innocent pulled into the star's debauchery, the heart from our growing realization that debauchery is just emptiness with the volume cranked.

    If the movie’s all too predictable in its broad outlines, it’s scurrilously funny in the details, and it pushes its two leads and one of its supporting actors in entertainingly fresh directions.
  6. 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).
  7. 42
    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.

    Get Him to the Greek lacks the heart of Forgetting Sarah Marshall but retains the witty style of gross-out comedy. 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. Expand

    This is probably the best comedy of the summer, even better than forgetting Sarah Marshall, Russel Brand is hilarious.

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

    I would give it an 8.5, and its definately the best movie i've seen this year so far. Probaly the funniest movie since Tropic Thunder, i I would give it an 8.5, and its definately the best movie i've seen this year so far. Probaly the funniest movie since Tropic Thunder, i never knew Russel Brand was so funny. Seth Rogen and suprsingly P Diddy are hilarious as well (maybe his character should get the next spin-off?) and was also a little touching as well. If your going to see something this month, make it Get Him To The Greek. Expand

    I keep saying it over and over, but I do because it's worth saying. Jonah Hill will do very well as an actor.

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

    The trailers of this movie were so misleading as they indicated that this movie may actually be funny. Russell Brand and Jonah Hill seemedThe trailers of this movie were so misleading as they indicated that this movie may actually be funny. Russell Brand and Jonah Hill seemed like a dynamite pair to put in a comedy film, but they are accompanied by a terrible story and a mediocre script, filled with a few funny parts. This movie should be renamed "Get Me The Hell Out Of This Cinema So That I Don't Need To Watch This Junk Anymore". Harsh, but true. Expand
