So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.

This is very much Brand's movie, with Hill playing a surprisingly subdued straight man. Still, the strong supporting cast - including Rose Byrne and Elisabeth Moss as the guys' girlfriends - easily holds its own.
75
A clever rock-world satire, with some lively take-offs on the TMZ-gossip magazine circus, but it's also too long, and by the time of the inevitable Las Vegas sequence, it starts to grow repetitive.

Great? No. Great fun? Oh, yes. Like Sergio and Aldous, this movie messes with your mind, then tickles it.
75
Under the cover of slapstick, cheap laughs, raunchy humor, gross-out physical comedy and sheer exploitation, Get Him to the Greek also is fundamentally a sound movie.
75
Extremely raunchy, Get Him to the Greek is also very funny
70
The funniest bits in the movie are, by and large, the small, offhanded gags stuffed into the corners.
63
The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.
55
Brand's character, who combines Bono's moral sanctimony with Keith Richards' supernatural hedonism, ultimately doesn't add up.

Before it goes off the rails into strained sermonizing, this sorta-sequel to 2008's delightful "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" gets in big laughs.
50
Never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.
