Excerpt: Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time, so When Get Him to The Greek came around i knew it couldn't have been a let down also considering they took Jonah Hill's character and Russell Brands from Forgetting Sarah Marshall and used it for this movie..Get Him To The Greek brings back Aldous Snow who has now relapsed on drugs and alochol after he has a fall out with his record label.

Excerpt: "Get Him to the Greek" is one of the year's best films. With a star making performance from Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. A razor-sharp wit that is reminiscent of some of the best comedies of the last 30 years like Hannah and Her Sisters, What's up Doc and Sleepers. With all the hysteria and grossness of a Monty Python skit and it's great predecessor "Forgetting Sarah Marshall".
Summary: This movie was great. I expected considering how much I enjoyed Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and how much I enjoy Jonah Hill in general. I was not disappointed. The only reason that I did not give this movie a higher rating was because it was so ridiculous and unbelievable. I could not stop laughing out loud in the theater and neither could the rest of the audience (which was decent sized for a mid week night time showing after release).
Summary: When I saw the trailers for Greek, they looked moderately funny. I hadn't seen Sarah Marshal, so I had no idea what that was all about. But, reviews were good and I thought, hey, what the heck. What I found was a very funny Apatow-filmish take on the rock n roll film. All the elements of a usual Apatow troop film are there: focus on unusual moments, sex drugs and gross out humor, friendship and some serious moments, and the breaking down of typical film trappings.
Summary: we thought it funny, lots of laughing in the cinema too so guess other felt same. a good brain-rest, relaxing, painless kind of film. unsophisticated, unpretentious, easy. what is the word - entertaining.
Summary: 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 like Russell Brand.
Summary: Great movie. Plenty of laughs. Storyline not so strong but who cares when you're rolling around the floor in fits of laughter. P-Diddy was surprisingly outstanding in his role as Sergio the Record label exec. Jonah Hill and Russell Brand were both excellent. Very funny flick. Go see it.
