Synopsis As ego-driven British rocker Aldous Snow in FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, Russell Brand stole scenes from people who were supposed to be the film’s stars. Now, Aldous gets his own film produced by Judd Apatow. Jonah Hill stars as a record-label intern who must take the easily distracted Aldous from London to California for a gig. GET HIM TO THE GREEK also stars Rose Byrne, Sean Combs, and Elisabeth Moss.3 stars out of 5 -- Brand is seductive to watch as he vamps his way across the various stages here, both public and private, working the hair-tossing insouciant artist thing to excellent effect.GET HIM TO THE GREEK manages to sustain its hepped-up, manic energy for surprisingly long stretches....Byrne, in addition to being a good sport, has marvelous comic timing...4 stars out of 5 -- Both Brand and Hill communicate as much with their facial expressions and bodies as they do with words....Brand shows flashes of genuine dramatic depth.[Hill] makes the perfect foil, as passive and impressionable as Brand is reckless and impulsive... -- Grade: B3 stars out of 4 -- The movie is funny in the way of THE HANGOVER about what trouble lads can get into when their senses are whirling.It has a rambly, realistic tone, with one orgiastic mishap spilling into the next, and that tone keeps much of the action popping with surprise. -- Grade: B3 stars out of 4 -- Brand's legit rock vocals make Snow's songs about venereal disease and bangers and mash actually kind of awesome.3 stars out of 5 -- Brand displays a winning ability to seem completely real, and he's at his funniest whenever Snow is being horrendously pretentious or incandescent with mock rage. Hill, meanwhile, is the perfect foil...3 stars out of 5 -- There are some wickedly funny lines, gross-out gags, parodies and cameos....The show is stolen by Sean Combs, playing the volatile label boss...[T]he result is a welcome complication of the post-SPINAL TAP bozo archetype....[Hill] impresses as a foil to a famous and dangerous egomaniac...3 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's P Diddy who races off with the comic spoils as angry producer Sergio...
