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.

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 coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

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.

W.C. Fields warned, "Never work with children or animals." Russell Brand and Jonah Hill can add, "Never work with P. Diddy."

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.

Christian Science Monitor
Top Critic

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

New Yorker
Top Critic

Making Aldous regret his wicked ways is a buzz-kill of major proportions.

Audience Reviews for Get Him to the Greek

½

A decent spin-off of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, not as delightful and touching as that comedy but still very funny and surprisingly sweet, with great performances by Jonah Hill and Russell Brand. And remember, "when the world slips you a Jeffrey, stroke the furry wall."

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
