A decent movie with some solid laughs, but at times seemed a little chaotic and irritating. The two stars make it easy to enjoy.

This was quite entertaining, specially the first half hour!

Admittedly I am a huge Russell Brand fan but I think this film stands up even without it's main co-star. Good songs, good jokes and great performances for the 2 leads. I also think that Puff Daddy shines with his out-there music producer. A great feel good film with songs that won't leave your head for days.

(Todo sobre mi desmadre - título en español) Un joven empleado de una disquera de Los Ángeles, Aaron Green (Jonah Hill), se ahce cargo de traer a la ciudad para un concierto al rockero británico Aldus Snow (Russell Brand), un drogadicto y alcohólico músico que vive al límite. Aaron quiere probar su valor como empleado a su jefe Sergio Roma (Sean Combs P-Diddy) mientras Aldus intentará reencaminar su vida y dar su recital para recuperar al amor de su vida Jackie Q, interpretada por Rose Byrne. Como en la mayoría de comedias, el gran trabajo cómico de Jonah Hill suele sacar risas del público con sus ocurrencias e interpretaciones

Great idea for a movie, absolutely hilarious and brilliant characters. It has its daft moments but there are some laugh out loud ones too.

Not a bad rewatch after many years. Worth it for the one scene with the fuzzy wall, so hilarious. I don't really like Russell Brand, I think he's probably an asshole in real life, much like his character in this movie, so that gets this film a lower rating.
Watched on Netflix with Sam on vacation in our hotel in Punta Cana, December 10, 2016.

Not as good as Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

It may be missing the depth of its predecessor but Get Him to the Greek is still a funny film with an interesting look at relationships and sexuality.

Not quite the seamless comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" was, but it's just as funny.

One of my favorite comedy films to date really really funny from start to finish would recommend to anybody who enjoyed Knocked Up, Pineapple Express etc, P. Diddy was so funny he made this film even more funny, A must see movie but not if you get offended easy.

Get Him to the Greek is directed and written by Nicholas Stoller, and it stars Jonah Hill and Russell Brand in a sequel/spin-off to Forgetting Sarah Marshall about a talent scout for a record company that got a task to bring Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to places to advertise his music concert, but Aldous makes the situation more complicated then ever due to him drinking and doing drugs. It was odd that there was a bit of a sequel to a comedy film that to be honest here, people didn't really ask for one. But hey, it's here, and I'm glad too as this was also a hilarious film that didn't felt like it was copying Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The humor is different, but it almost has the same guffaw impact that Forgetting Sarah Marshall had for me. Jonah Hill and Russell Brand surprisingly work together off pretty good as I never thought I'll see a movie with these two together as main characters. They have some funny moments with each other, and they are just really good. The songs are pretty catchy to listen to, and almost every time Sean Combs is in this, he makes me laugh really hard as he plays a very odd role, but it works to his advantage and is really good at it. Another moment that is funniest part of the film, is a cameo from T.J. Miller because the way it was set up was pretty funny, when it edits out to the next scene, it was hilarious as it borrow a trick from Forgetting Sarah Marshall only two times that was only for T.J. Miller's part, which was executed well in terms of its comedic timing, and then stuff happens and they end it very quickly, which made me laugh so hard at it that I come back to the scene again just to laugh again. It's just out of nowhere that I can't help but appreciate how delightfully random it was. If there's any problems that I have with it, it's probably the one part at the last act as it didn't seem that bit realistic knowing about the first 2 acts of them dealing with the situations, but that's a bit of a nitpick as I really enjoyed this movie very much that in terms of comedy films, Nicholas Stoller would be one of the directors that I would be looking forward to his films, even if it doesn't turn out well.

Jonah Hill is great and really makes the whole thing work; well that and the surprisingly candid characters. I have to say I don't really like Russell Brand but he's at his best here I suppose. Some parts of the film toward the end arguably suffer a bit for the films ambitions too, making it seem a bit tonally confused, but this is only a minor complaint. Really is quite funny!

Another washed up Russel Brand character and the same old fumbling Jonah Hill character in one not too great movies. It wasn't at all memorable and I certainly won't be bothered about watching again anytime soon, it lacked a lot and wasn't that funny, I honestly have seen better and worse, but this movie was just mediocre.

A record company intern must get a famous rockstar to an LA theatre.

Aaron Greenberg has to get British rocker Aldous Snow to the Greek Theatre for a guaranteed money making tour. Along the way Aaron is exposed to the life of partying, drugs and sex which has an effect on both of them.

Quite funny, not at all what I was expecting!

Get Him To The Greek is a very funny movie that is also equally insightful and emotional. It centers around Aldous Snow a character introduced in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Aaron Green, a young record producer who has to get Aldous from London to LA in 3 days. Russell Brand gives a outstanding performance as Aldous Snow a musican who dispite having a great deal of success has let his addiction to drugs and alcohol have pretty much ruin his life. Jonah Hill also gives a very good performace proving he can do
more than just be Superbad.
Unlike a lot of comedies this takes drug addiction very seriously and gives a realistic portrayal of how serious and awful it is.
Its also very very funny though not quite as funny as Forgetting Sarah Marshall it touched on deeper issues and continues Judd Apatows streak of great films.
