Critic Reviews

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.
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • The movie's story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention. More...
  • Making Aldous regret his wicked ways is a buzz-kill of major proportions. More...
  • Cheerfully profane in the manner of a dormitory bull session. More...
  • This is personality comedy, and Brand and Hill have it to spare. More...
  • A veering, careening joy ride of excess and heart. More...
  • A little bit of Russell Brand can go a long way, but Greek is a fine vehicle for his mock rock-god persona. More...
  • If the film hadn't made a beeline toward the "serious movie with a message" category we could have had another Hangover or Tropic Thunder on our hands. More...
  • You see the serious stuff as just another bad joke. More...

  • [My predicted rating: 3] Admittedly this film is a bit of a yawn fest, with an occasional moment of laughter, those who enjoyed Forgetting Sarah...
  • Moderately enjoyable comedy from Nicholas Stoller, spun off the far better Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Funny enough to not qualify as a waste of time,...
  • Get Him to the Greek is hilarious and a soon to be classic comedy. The plot is a wild ride of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but it somehow adds a...
  • To start off this review, I would like to acknowledge that Get Him to the Greek should by no means be taken seriously. This hilarious spin-off of...
  • How much comedy gold can be mined from the old "sex, drugs and rock-n-roll" cliches? Approximately ten minutes worth, apparently. Russell Brand's...
  • One of the best comedy sequels ever made. You can't not find this film funny! Russell Brand and Jonah Hill are babes. They work so well together....
