  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. 75
    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.
  5. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.
  6. 60
    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 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

    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

    A Film Review By: Sam Fragoso "Get Him To The Greek" *** Russel Brand renews his role as "Aldous Snow" from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", in the new outrageous comedy "Get Him To The Greek".

    Teamwork and chemistry. I think it's the key to most films, but in particular comedies. As you have seen the few comedies I have liked this year it had great cast's with loads of chemistry (Hot Tub Time Machine and The Other Guys).

    Nicholas Stoller who directed "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" is really good at balancing comedic moments and genuine romantic scenes. With that being said, "Get Him To The Greek" does what a lot of comedies do these days, which is it's funny for half of the film then towards last quarter of the the movie it gets really repetitive and drawn out.

    However the last ten minutes of the movie were extremely funny and honestly most of that credit goes to Jonah Hill (Superbad and Funny People) and surprisingly P-Diddy. "Get Him To Greek" is not nearly as audacious and unforgettable as "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", but it's still a good mix of slap-stick comedy and good story telling from Stoller and Segel. B for "Get Him To The Greek"

    Decent comedy but at the end of the day there isn't much here that I haven't seen before from the genre or the film's main stars so it tends to blend in with the rest of them. Hill Brand are good together don't get me wrong, but both can get annoying at times as funny as they can be. Storyline was decent, but again noting special. A few good laughs here and there but nothing compared to the better works we have seen from this team before, so its good but not the best. Expand

    While it was funny and it bowed into the humor of today it seemed to much. Trying to hard to be funny and being funny are to very different things. Jonah Hill and Russel Brand are very funny and do great together but i think it lacked the proper script for these two. they needed more off the script stuff to make it flow together and not so written.

    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
