June 4, 2010
Cheerfully profane in the manner of a dormitory bull session.
June 4, 2010
This is personality comedy, and Brand and Hill have it to spare.
June 4, 2010
A veering, careening joy ride of excess and heart.
June 4, 2010
A little bit of Russell Brand can go a long way, but Greek is a fine vehicle for his mock rock-god persona.
June 4, 2010
If the film hadn't made a beeline toward the "serious movie with a message" category we could have had another Hangover or Tropic Thunder on our hands.
June 4, 2010
You see the serious stuff as just another bad joke.
June 4, 2010
One of the most surprisingly enjoyable and consistent comedies of the year.
June 4, 2010
It's the classic buddy-road trip structure. A repressed character and a raging id go on a journey and we get all kinds of bad behavior and then some lessons learned
June 4, 2010
A few too many grossout gags, but this is inspired lunacy, with P. Diddy (!) delivering one of the funniest performances of the year.
June 4, 2010
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.
June 4, 2010
Some of the raunchy bits are amusing, but others prove that funny doesn't automatically follow from dirty.
June 3, 2010
So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.
June 3, 2010
The setup isn't especially interesting or original, but the movie gets better as it goes through its paces.
June 3, 2010
The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.
June 3, 2010
Get Him to the Greek displays the bawdy-sweet mixture that is the signature of the Judd Apatow school of screen comedy.
June 3, 2010
Get Him to the Greek has some big laughs, and it scores an endless source of points by skewering the rock-star lifestyle.
June 3, 2010
There's no buildup, no narrative arc, just one scene of comically debauched partying after another.
June 3, 2010
Nobody goes to an R-rated man-love comedy for spiritual renewal. We just want more outlandish gags. Down with the uplift; up with the suppository jokes.
June 3, 2010
Looking for a buddy comedy with wit, heart and scatological charm to spare? Get thee to this Greek.
June 3, 2010
Aside from the useless gross-out scenes, Stoller and a perfectly tuned Brand get every detail right, including the seductive egomania of celebrities and the predatory fawning of their handlers.
