I like to think I have a sense of humour, but this is horribly tiresome and probably only fit for teenage boys, who do seem to get a buzz from this sort of thing.

Either way, it--and the movie--is annoying.

Not quite up to par with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but this is one easily worth multiple viewings with the potential to get funnier and funnier each time.

There's a tight, farcical, potentially hilarious movie hiding inside this uneven, protracted but begrudgingly humorous film.
June 26, 2010
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.
June 25, 2010
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.

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.
June 24, 2010
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.
June 24, 2010
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.
June 21, 2010
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.

Like most of the recent exports from Apatown, this is patchy, but home-run hilarious from time to time. If only it didn't detour into darkness so often.
June 16, 2010
Though it drags a bit at times, and -- like other Apatow films -- concentrates on the gross-out elements, the film has a lovely central core in which the importance of love and long-term relationships are stressed.

W.C. Fields warned, "Never work with children or animals." Russell Brand and Jonah Hill can add, "Never work with P. Diddy."
June 11, 2010
Brand can seem simultaneously randy and strung-out and is often very funny. Hill is surprisingly touching, which is quite a feat given the number of orifices he is required to display.
June 11, 2010
Get Him to the Greek ticks all the boxes. It's a satire on rock'n'roll, with Russell Brand as a drugs- and booze-addled English rock star who's trying to restart his career and get back his lost love, model-turned-singer Jackie Q (a Cockney Rose Byrne)
June 7, 2010
The movie's story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention.
June 4, 2010
Making Aldous regret his wicked ways is a buzz-kill of major proportions.
