Get Him to the Greek

A comedy about an ambitious 24-year-old intern, Aaron (Jonah Hill),  who has been given a career-making assignment. His mission: fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio (Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs), gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril.”

British rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand, reprising his character from Forgetting Sarah Marsall) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of 'yes men' and scared he’s entered the 'greatest hits' moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral...

Forgotten Sarah Marshall?

Hmmm, this sounds familiar... a young up and comer in the music biz is charged with getting a famously drunken and drugged up rock star to a comeback concert and comic chaos ensues... Anyone recall Richard Benjamin's "My Favorite Year" (1982)? It starred Peter O'Toole as Alan Swann (a character based on Erol Flynn) a drunken matinee idol who is to...

Honestly...

I have to be honest, I couldn't bring myself to watch the whole lot. Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for this type of movie... but honestly? It wasn't as funny as it could have been, or should have been! I mean, it sounds good on paper...

Terrible movie! Shows this world has really gone to a new low. Very lost. Did laugh at one liner - oooh I would kiss her face but that was it. I was rather repulsed and wanted to refund my ticket.

Better than FSM

I thought this was better than Forgetting Sarah Marshall - less angsty and definitely less of the awkward cringe inducing humour. This movie mostly just played for laughs and it was successful at getting them. Should have left some of the relationship wrap up on the cutting room floor though - it detracted at the end. Worth watching especially if you...

About the same as Forgetting Sarah Marshall

I liked this movie, there were funny scenes and good one-liners, but it goes to the same comedy as Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Brilliant

The hotel scene with ensuing chase was sooo hilarious I thought I might crack a rib laughing. Love the furry wall and the adrenaline shot. Out of control! (Big thanks to Flicks for the free ticks)

Good Movie but can wait till DVD

It was a very funny movie and Russell Brand played himself very well and he made for a very liakable character. A few "OMG" moments and overall a good laugh but would wait until it hits DVD as it is not a fantastic movie

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.

Get Him To The Greek won't be to everyone's tastes to be honest - but for a fun night out with the lads, it's the perfect film.

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

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.

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?

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

British comedian Russell Brand, as the gregarious, lizard-hipped, sexaholic rocker Aldous Snow, stole the show so thoroughly in his big Hollywood debut, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that they simply had to give him his own movie to run away with.
