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.

  • 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 Blu-ray Review

23 September 2010
  • Summary: I admit it, I am smitten with Russell Brand. No, not that way. This gangly, frankly odd appearing and behaving individual, who looks like he could have sprung from the fertile, fishnet-stockinged loins of Tim Curry's Frank-N-Furter, is one part Eddie Izzard and one part Rabelais. I had seen Brand in a couple of supporting roles in films, but he really hadn't made that much of an impression until I caught one of his standup routines on television one night and was simply...

Review: Get Him to the Greek

The 8th Circuit
15 June 2010
  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • Summary: Catwoman , Wolverine , Elektra , Evan Almighty , The Scorpion King . Spin-off movies don’t exactly have a great record with most lacking a decent script and invariably looking like they were cobbled together in a big hurry. However, while Forgetting Sarah Marshall might also not have been the most obvious movie to inspire a spin-off, like Madagascar ’s Penguins (who’ve ended up with their own TV series), the producers have wisely chosen to focus on Marshall ’s...

Get Him To The Greek

Empire Online
27 January 2011
  • Conclusion: 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.
