Movie Info

Aaron Greenberg gets things done. The ambitious 23-year-old has exaggerated his way into a dream job just in time for a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.'s Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a $100-million tour. His warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril. British rocker Aldous Snow is both a brilliant musician and walking sex. Weary of yes men and piles of money, the former front man is searching for the meaning of life. He may have to

This is Brand's movie all the way: he's the one snorting the drugs, throwing the tantrums and getting the lion's share of the laughs.

Brand can seem simultaneously randy and strung-out and is often very funny. Hill is surprisingly touching, which is quite a feat given the number of orifices he is required to display.

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

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

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.

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.

For the music lovers: If Superbad, Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall are Radiohead's The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A, Get Him To The Greek is their Amnesiac.

Quite sadly Get Him to the Greek just doesn't work in the way it was meant to. Despite an ambitious metaphor, the film is far too mean-spirited to tickle our funny-bone.

This Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off is lively and silly enough to keep us giggling. But its darker moments make the tone rather uneven.

I'm having a hard time remembering what the really funny bits in Get Him to the Greek were, exactly. I mean, I know I laughed. I just don't really remember why.

Get Him To The Greek promises a fun time but rarely delivers the goods.

'Greek' works best during the cleverly scored mayhem montage scenes (a highlight involves absinthe and a French version of Happy Together).

While it's clear that rock-star petulance and vanity are being spoofed, there is little at stake dramatically or morally -- the bedroom threesome towards the end is weird rather than funny.

The basic tonal problem is established right at the outset: we are being invited to laugh at exotic limey Aldous, whereas Brand's stand-up persona needs us to laugh with him and to see the world through his eyes.

An odd sequel/spin off of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get him to the Greek has a decent enough premise with a good idea at its core. Unfortunately, the story is very shaky - the first half making much more sense than the second half. The editing goes out the window in the second half and it feels as if they're just making it all up as they go along and settle of cliche ending due to running out of either steam, interest or time. It's not without its moments though. P Diddy is pretty funny in his scenes, some of the one-liners are golden and they obviously did their research for the London scenes - acknowledging Brixton Academy as an important music venue for example. More miss than hit but was perfect for the mindless nonsense I was in the mood for at the time.

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.
