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.

This is Brand's film, and every aspect of his persona is played to the max - the sexual magnetism, the multiple addictions, the doting but distant mum, the hangers-on and women who want to control him.

You can have too much of a good thing and we have our fill of Aldous's sexist outbursts well before the end of the first hour.

While Brand can take credit for the authenticity of his character, Stoller has brought out the best Brand performance to date.

Given that Judd Apatow is a co-producer, you'd at least expect the film to make you laugh. The humour's all over the place, though.

Unlike many of 2010's comedies so far, hilarity does indeed ensue.

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.

Feeling like a very laboured version of The Hangover, Get Him To The Greek is a bitter pill to swallow in comparison.

It's as silly and juvenile as you'd expect, but a whole lot of fun.

This is Brand's bag: a man intoxicated with himself, who'll never shut up or stop messing around with east London slang and 19th-century swear words until the world drops its knickers.

Aaron and Aldous are a flat-out pleasure to watch bouncing off each other - their chemistry is much richer than the one-note geek/freak odd couple you might expect.

The comedy is close to the knuckle at times, but Hill and Brand counter that with an easy chemistry, while those who normally find Brand too loud or abrasive may be surprised to see his softer side.

Boasting an impressive above-the-title debut for Brand, this is one for your movie-watchy booky wook.

Highly amusing ... confirms Russell Brand as a genuine Hollywood star.

Empty laughs are still laughs.

The film has a riotous anarchic tone that suits its Rock and Roll personality perfectly, and by the time it was over I was actually sad to see it end.
