What we end up with here is a tonally confused film with jokes that mostly miss and some good performances from the leads.

It's rare that a previously established side character, no matter how well loved, can deliver the goods in his own show. Which is probably why nobody tries it with movies. Well, nobody but the makers of Get Him to the Greek.

With Sarah Marshall, Stoller made audiences hungry for more Aldous Snow; after Get Him to the Greek, they'll be happy never to see the guy again.

Sloppily edited scenes are worsened by desperate performances and dialogue that amounts to frenzied screaming and running about.

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

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

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.

Sorry guys, not even a good try

Brand takes center stage as the fatuously cocksure singer, but the episodic screenplay strains to give the British comic enough juicy moments to be amusingly inappropriate.

Watching Get Him to the Greek feels like being at a party with a bunch of wasted people who think they're funnier than they are.

Stoller ... apparently has major trust issues with his odd-couple stars, women and the audience. Did I forget anybody?

Under Apatow's direction, when boys move beyond their base desires, it's character development. Under Stoller's, it's a buzzkill.

Now here's a relatively new (if not necessarily welcome) idea: the sorta-kinda-not-really sequel.

It must try all manner of bizarre/obscene/silly things to sustain itself beyond stating the obvious about celebrity excess.

If not for the likable Hill and the very believable Brand, the film would be a total bust.

Some of the raunchy bits are amusing, but others prove that funny doesn't automatically follow from dirty.

Get Him To The Greek promises a fun time but rarely delivers the goods.

The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.
