Get Him to the Greek
Aaron Greenberg gets things done. The ambitious 23-year-old has exaggerated his way into a dream job just in time for a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.'s Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a $100-million tour. His warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril. British rocker Aldous Snow is both a brilliant musician and walking sex. Weary of yes men and piles of money, the former front man is searching for the meaning of life. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is Brand's movie all the way: he's the one snorting the drugs, throwing the tantrums and getting the lion's share of the laughs."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Making Aldous regret his wicked ways is a buzz-kill of major proportions."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Get Him To The Greek is absolutely hilarious. With great music and amusing chemistry between the two leads, it's definitely a must-see."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"The jury's still out on Brand as a leading man, at least on this evidence, but chances are you won't find a vehicle better suited to his comic sensibilities than this one."
‑ Ali Gray,
"To put it in rock 'n' roll terms, you'd go to the gig but you wouldn't buy the t-shirt."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"Brand can seem simultaneously randy and strung-out and is often very funny. Hill is surprisingly touching, which is quite a feat given the number of orifices he is required to display."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Cheerfully profane in the manner of a dormitory bull session."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"While it's not the classic comedy that you haven't lived until you see it, 'Greek' is more than good enough for a few, goofy laughs."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Diddy's scene-stealing work proves that he should really take a break from trying to prove his Serious Acting Chops and do more comedy."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"For the music lovers: If Superbad, Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall are Radiohead's The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A, Get Him To The Greek is their Amnesiac."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"The movie's story is conventional in shape, but it has passages of crazy exhilaration and brilliant invention."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"This is personality comedy, and Brand and Hill have it to spare."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"What we end up with here is a tonally confused film with jokes that mostly miss and some good performances from the leads."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"... Likely to be one of the year's best comedies."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Quite sadly Get Him to the Greek just doesn't work in the way it was meant to. Despite an ambitious metaphor, the film is far too mean-spirited to tickle our funny-bone."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
