Get Him to the Greek Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a huge breakout for star Jason Segal -- and apparently, for Russell Brand, too. Yes, Brand was funny in the movie, but enough to have his own spin-off? That's the concept behind Get Him to the Greek . Director Nicholas Stoller was apparently so enamored with the character of Aldous Snow, as well as actor Jonah Hill, that he penned and directed this semi-sequel. The weird thing is, Hill plays a completely different character here.

They become sidetracked in Las Vegas, where Snow’s father Johnathan (Colm Meaney) resides. Greene’s boss Sergio (Sean Combs) meets up with the traveling crew, who begin tripping on a drug cocktail known as a Jefferey.

  • Conclusion: Who knew P. Diddy could act? One of the many hilarious revelations from Nicholas Stroller's riotous comedy about rocking out and living it up. I liked 'Get Him to the Greek' a lot more than I thought I would. It reminds me of ' The Hangover ' only, dare I say it, funnier. It's got the perfect balance of over-the-top humor, and sweet, honest life reflection.

Get Him to the Greek (2010)

  • Conclusion: Color me slightly amazed. I was frankly expecting another pretty stupid, lame comedy that had a few intermittent giggles scattered throughout a barren wasteland. Instead, Get Him to the Greek has one big laugh after another. Yes, it's frequently crude and tasteless, but isn't that rock 'n' roll in a nutshell? Brand and Hill make an oddly adorable couple, and the supporting cast is aces.

  • Excerpt: Following in the footsteps of such comedic spin-offs as A Shot in the Dark and, er, Evan Almighty, Get Him to the Greek reprises the character of Aldous Snow, the egotistical English rock star played by comedian Russell Brand who originally featured in 2008�s Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The earlier film was an enjoyable if undistinguished comedy that succeeded thanks to a sympathetic lead performance from writer-star Jason Segel.

Review: Get Him to the Greek

The 8th Circuit

  • Excerpt: Back in 1982, there was a film called My Favorite Year , about a young NBC worker whose job is to make sure his filmic hero is sober enough to appear on a variety show. Now in 2010 we have a movie called Get Him to the Greek about a young music worker whose job is to make sure his rocker hero is “sober” enough to appear at a comeback concert in Los Angeles. Not only are the films rather similar in plot, but in tone as well.

  • Excerpt: 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall fit snugly into the niche Judd Apatow had built at the time, a story about a pudgy and flawed everyman who learned to overcome his selfish impulses and pick the right girl. It was raunchy and outrageous while reconfirming the importance of love and long-term relationships, and it managed to encourage ordinary people like Jason Segel's character Peter to pursue their dreams even while introducing us to the egomaniacal, undoubtedly talented...

Get Him to the Greek Movie Review

  • Summary: Russell Brand's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" character gets a movie all his own. The result is, as you might imagine, too much of a good thing.

Get Him To The Greek

AV Club
3 June 2010
  • Excerpt: As Aldous Snow, the breakout character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall , Russell Brand was a glorious amalgam of rock-star stereotypes: A creature of colossal excess despite his loose attachments to Eastern philosophy and vague “causes,” a thinker as vapid and pretentious as Sting or Bono on their worst days, and a tornado that rips through hotel rooms and other people’s relationships.
