With the film's plot becoming increasingly improbable, a happy ending just seems disingenuous.

Get Him To The Greek is absolutely hilarious. With great music and amusing chemistry between the two leads, it's definitely a must-see.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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.
Full Review | 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.

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.

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.
Full Review | 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.

Nesavrena, ali sasvim probavljiva holivudska zabava za ove vruće ljetne dane

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

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
