San Francisco Chronicle

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

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
This is very much Brand's movie, with Hill playing a surprisingly subdued straight man. Still, the strong supporting cast - including Rose...

Philadelphia Inquirer

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

Entertainment Weekly

By 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...

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

Boston Globe

By 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...

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

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

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

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

Depressing and sadistic

By juliepci
I'm not a prude - I don't mind some raunchy humor, I don't mind some bad language, and I understand naked women are put in most movies because of some union rule in Hollywood. This movie is a new...


By Pr0fessor
I had such high hopes for this movie. Trailers rocked! But this SNL sketch wannabe was too long, too stupid, and just not funny enough to warrant the $50 for ticket, parking, popcorn and soda. I...

bad movie

By scare_d_kat
I dunno know what was worse, the movie or the free "sex show" I had going on in front of me since I guess they though the movie was bad too....

Way passed what I expected

By redyeah
Coming in to this movie I expected vomit, tripping out, and a bunch of laughs. What I got was that and so much more. Who would have thought Russell Brand actually knew what he was doing? He makes...

Raunch prevents my opinion from being GO

By keatsgirl
Underneath,this is smart comedy. Why do they have to get so REPETITIVELY vulgar.We don't need it,and a depraved minority loves it. Especially Byrnes character!Great lesson if you can get past the...

Just Okay

By deftones916
I liked this movie for the most part. Funny and moves well at some points, Tedious and slow in other parts. I feel like too many of these "party" movies are getting a little soft around the edges....

Get Him to the Greek

By Debbie1968
The movie was absolutely hillarious. All of the actors were great. I laughed so hard I could barely catch my breath. This is a must see movie....

Get Him to the Greek

By moviegirlinpdx
Didn't find this movie too enticing, there were a few scenes that had me laughing pretty hard - Sean Combs was key to the movie, and I thought Russell Brand was cast well in his role as Aldous Snow. ...

Very funny

By egary
By the time this movie hit it's climax, my stomach hurt from laughing. Judging by the crowd we saw it with, everyone else felt the same. It really gets off the wall, go see it....
