  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.
  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

    When I first heard that a spin-off was being made of one of my favorite comedies of all times, I was kind of worried, but I am relieved to When I first heard that a spin-off was being made of one of my favorite comedies of all times, I was kind of worried, but I am relieved to report that Get Him to the Greek does justice to Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Greek takes the eccentric rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) from Forgetting Sarah Marshall and makes him a much bigger character. Brand was fantastic in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and is even better in this one. The plot involves Aaron Green (Jonah Hill), who works for a record company and must escort Snow to a comeback concert to get the revenue flowing again. As you can imagine, these two get into quite some interesting situations. The two characters work great on the screen together, creating a constant flow of laughs from start to finish; however, there is also another character that caught my eye. His name is P. Diddy. He may not be a top-notch actor, but he delivers some of the funniest lines of the movie. There is one specific scene with all three characters that may be the funniest scene I Expand

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

    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
