Get Him to the Greek (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Thanks to a suitably raunchy script and a pair of winning performances from Jonah Hill and Russell Brand, Get Him to the Greek is one of the year's funniest comedies.

Critic Reviews for Get Him to the Greek

All Critics (190) | Top Critics (43)

Get Him To The Greek is absolutely hilarious. With great music and amusing chemistry between the two leads, it's definitely a must-see.

We Got This Covered

While it's not the classic comedy that you haven't lived until you see it, 'Greek' is more than good enough for a few, goofy laughs.

Lyles' Movie Files

What we end up with here is a tonally confused film with jokes that mostly miss and some good performances from the leads.

The jury's still out on Brand as a leading man, at least on this evidence, but chances are you won't find a vehicle better suited to his comic sensibilities than this one.

Diddy's scene-stealing work proves that he should really take a break from trying to prove his Serious Acting Chops and do more comedy.

... Likely to be one of the year's best comedies.

Moments of hilarity contrasted against darker moments and moments of boredom left 'Get Him to the Greek' feeling dis-jointed, isolating the viewer from what could of potentially been a very good film. I was surprised at how good Russel Brand was in this alongside P-diddy who somehow managed to be the funniest character against all my expectations. 'Get Him to the Greek' had it's occasional moments but overall felt overlong and overdone

Jonah Hill and Russell Brand's chemistry in this comedy is simply outstanding. I hugely recommend buying Get Him To The Greek instead of going to see Hill's recent release 21 Jump Street which is highly average and formulaic. Brand on the other hand, is better than ever. Considering the movie is closely related to music, I think that Brand should form his fictional band Infant Sorrow. He's actually a decent singer, as proven with this film. Its worth watching a couple times just for the tunes, but it's genuinely funny. Although not the best Judd Apatow comedy it's better than some of the others.
