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, TheShiznit.co.uk
"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, TheMovieReport.com
"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, Examiner.com
"... 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
