More Info:
  • Mick LaSalle

    So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    This is very much Brand's movie, with Hill playing a surprisingly subdued straight man. Still, the strong supporting cast - including Rose Byrne and Elisabeth Moss as the guys' girlfriends - easily holds its own.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    As an encore for Brand's Aldous, it's a welcome return. And for Hill, it's a chance to really shine.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • John P. McCarthy

    What transpires gives fresh meaning to ‘sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.'

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • David Denby

    The movie’s story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Under the cover of slapstick, cheap laughs, raunchy humor, gross-out physical comedy and sheer exploitation, Get Him to the Greek also is fundamentally a sound movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Extremely raunchy, Get Him to the Greek is also very funny

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Great? No. Great fun? Oh, yes. Like Sergio and Aldous, this movie messes with your mind, then tickles it.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Turns out to be the funniest hard-R comedy since "The Hangover."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Molly Fitzpatrick

    If "Sarah Marshall" spawned Aldous Snow, maybe there's room for a Sergio Roma vehicle?

    Premiere Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    What’s missing in Get Him to the Greek are the supporting characters that made "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" so engaging.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The mercurial Brand is spot on as the mercurial Aldous, putting over outrageously titled tunes with panache.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A clever rock-world satire, with some lively take-offs on the TMZ-gossip magazine circus, but it's also too long, and by the time of the inevitable Las Vegas sequence, it starts to grow repetitive.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The movie is like an old vinyl LP; the best cuts are on the first side, there's a bangup finish and a lot of filler material in between.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Hill, dialing back on the pissy vulgarity of his supporting roles in "Knocked Up" and "Funny People," makes the perfect foil, as passive and impressionable as Brand is reckless and impulsive.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The funniest bits in the movie are, by and large, the small, offhanded gags stuffed into the corners.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Get Him to the Greek, is a mess, but an amiable and occasionally uproarious one due mostly to Russell Brand’s reprising of his role as Aldous Snow.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Get Him to the Greek displays the bawdy-sweet mixture that is the signature of the Judd Apatow school of screen comedy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Barring a few lapses, the gags fly by in rapid-fire fashion, and enough of them connect -- thanks in part to the amusing mix of Hill's hang-dog demeanor with Brand's lanky, relentless hedonism.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    As in "My Favorite Year," the laughs all come from seeing a nervous innocent pulled into the star's debauchery, the heart from our growing realization that debauchery is just emptiness with the volume cranked.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Brand can seem simultaneously randy and strung-out and is often very funny. Hill is surprisingly touching.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The volume is pitched high, perhaps so you won't notice how lackadaisically structured the picture is. Get Him to the Greek isn't really a story but a collection of comic set pieces.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Mostly, this frantic film is yet another attempt at “Spinal Tap” silly. At times it goes for the heart of “Almost Famous,” and its sense of rock is that of a barely acquainted observer.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    If the movie’s all too predictable in its broad outlines, it’s scurrilously funny in the details, and it pushes its two leads and one of its supporting actors in entertainingly fresh directions.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    What it does have going for it are its lead actors -- Brand and Hill both know exactly how to deliver a punch line -- and a lead character who represents one of the best bits of rock 'n' roll satire since "This Is Spinal Tap."

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    It's not quite infectious, but some of the high notes manage to drown out some of the guttural lows.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    Like most of the recent exports from Apatown, Get Him To The Greek -- aka Russell Brand’s My Filmy Wilm -- is patchy, but home-run hilarious from time to time. If only it didn’t detour into darkness so often, this could have been a genuine treat.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    When the movie remembers to be the drug-spiked, hard-R comedy you hope for, it’s more than just a fun romp (and, incidentally, superior to "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," the rom-com from which its Britpop libertine spins off).

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The seriously out-of-control hard R dude is writer-director Nicholas Stoller, who apparently has major trust issues with his odd-couple stars, women and the audience. Did I forget anybody?

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    There's no buildup, no narrative arc, just one scene of comically debauched partying after another.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Brand's character, who combines Bono's moral sanctimony with Keith Richards' supernatural hedonism, ultimately doesn't add up.

    NPR Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Before it goes off the rails into strained sermonizing, this sorta-sequel to 2008’s delightful "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" gets in big laughs.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Aaron Leitko

    Unlike its forebears, "Greek" lacks a truly sympathetic central character to hold things together when it's time to get sappy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The film feels like a collection of sketches instead of a mad, three-day, drug-and-sex-infused whirl.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    An uneven but surprising movie, often outrageously funny and just as often completely flat. Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Shaggily amusing but familiar and way-too-long.

    Time Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    This final act goes on far too long and devolves into such a miasma of pap that it's clear Stoller had no idea how to wrap things up.
