There's a perfectly neat way to wind this up without the nauseating dog's breakfast the final act becomes, with every disgusting thing thrown in, gobbled up, regurgitated with horrible hacking noises, and eaten again.

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

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

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.

There's a tight, farcical, potentially hilarious movie hiding inside this uneven, protracted but begrudgingly humorous film.

Sorry guys, not even a good try

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

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.

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.

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.

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

It's impossible to take seriously %u2014 to even trust it as real %u2014 when it's so clearly designed to feel like nothing more than a version of events tossed together from abandoned ideas left behind by a much better film.

It must try all manner of bizarre/obscene/silly things to sustain itself beyond stating the obvious about celebrity excess.
June 13, 2010
...Get Him to the Greek ultimately overstays its welcome in a manner that's nothing short of breathtaking...

W.C. Fields warned, "Never work with children or animals." Russell Brand and Jonah Hill can add, "Never work with P. Diddy."

... sets a new standard for stupid ...
