Get Him To The Greek is absolutely hilarious. With great music and amusing chemistry between the two leads, it's definitely a must-see.
| 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.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
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
| Original Score: B
... 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.
| Original Score: 4/5
Nesavrena, ali sasvim probavljiva holivudska zabava za ove vruće ljetne dane
| Original Score: 5/10
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
'Greek' works best during the cleverly scored mayhem montage scenes (a highlight involves absinthe and a French version of Happy Together).
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
While Brand can take credit for the authenticity of his character, Stoller has brought out the best Brand performance to date.
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.
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.
