Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
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.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
What we end up with here is a tonally confused film with jokes that mostly miss and some good performances from the leads.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
... Likely to be one of the year's best comedies.
| Original Score: B
To put it in rock 'n' roll terms, you'd go to the gig but you wouldn't buy the t-shirt.
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
| Original Score: 6/10
Nesavrena, ali sasvim probavljiva holivudska zabava za ove vruće ljetne dane
| Original Score: 5/10
Sorry guys, not even a good try
This Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off is lively and silly enough to keep us giggling. But its darker moments make the tone rather uneven.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Prepare to have a bawdy, taboobusting good time. Just don't expect it to resonate anywhere except your funnybone.
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.
| Original Score: 7/10
Get Him To The Greek promises a fun time but rarely delivers the goods.
| Original Score: 2/5
'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.
Needs more Kristen Bell.
Just a succession of gross-out gags and sketches that fail to deliver.
This is mostly plain hilarious.
