  1. So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.

    The movie’s story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention.

    Turns out to be the funniest hard-R comedy since "The Hangover."
  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.

    The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.

    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.

    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 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. Collapse

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    Russell Brand, Jonah Hill, and Diddy. You put all three of them into a movie and you get this hilarious and raunchy comedy. This is probably one of the good comedies of the year 2010. Talk about a bad year in movies, there is practically no good comedies these days. Comedies like Killers, Sex and the City 2, Cop Out, and Furry Vengeance all bombed in the box office and critics hated them. Although Get Him to the Greek is raunchy and full of sex jokes, it still got me laughing my ass off. I enjoyed this very much and writing a long review for a comedy like this isn't my style. Expand

    I could have a few of these tracks saved on my phone. If I'm honest: I could easily brush my teeth to African child. Russell Brand is at his comic and simple best as Aldous Snow while Jonah Hill leaves something to be desired. I expected Jonah to pull material from 'Superbad' or 'Knocked Up' to shape his character but while the guy looks older he loses his comedic edge to Brand and P-Diddy. The plot isn't fantastic, nor is it expected to be. However, 'Get Him To The Greek' with its rocking soundtrack is quite enjoyable. Expand

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

    The 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
