Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This spinoff of Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a very raunchy comedy aimed at young adult males. Fans of Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, and Sean "Diddy" Combs will be very please. Non-stop sexual and drug content as well as profanity make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ...Get Him to the Greek turns out to be the funniest hard-R comedy since The Hangover.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good What I'm backing into here is that 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.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The concept is inspired, and the movie has some very funny moments. But about halfway through this long weekend, the frantic tale grows flimsy.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 39 moviegoers:
I was very surprised by the very light turnout for this movie. From three showings we were only able to collect 39 reviews.
TEENS:Eight of the ten males and three of the five females loved it. The others didn't care for it. From looking at the other reviews, it's obvious this is, primarily, a teen and twentysomething male movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Males enjoyed it very much. Five loved it, one rated it above average and one didn't care much for it. The three females rated it above average (1) and average (2).
ADULTS:Neither the male or female reviews are very good. Approximately half enjoyed "Get Him to the Greek" very much. The remaining half were divided between average and below average. These aren't terrible reviews but aren't strong enough to recommend this movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Aaron Green (Hill) 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 (Brand) 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. But that doesn't mean he can't have a few orgies while he finds it. When he learns his true love is in California, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back…right before kick-starting his world domination. As the countdown to the concert begins, one intern must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.
