Russell Brand’s Aldous Snow, the peculiar rocker from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, now has his own movie. Jonah Hill also returns—in a different role—as a record exec who must rush Snow from Great Britain to an engagement at a Los Angeles rock concert. Sorely missing is Jason Segel, who starred in and wrote Forgetting Sarah Marshall, because Brand and Hill ultimately both prove that they’re better taken in small doses. The movie gets off to a good start, with Brand and Hill getting some laughs, but the film runs out of gas before the duo hits the United States. Sean Combs steals the movie as Hill’s boss, a fiercely intense honcho addicted to The Biggest Loser. The movie ignites every time Combs appears, which doesn’t happen enough. I’ll say this for Brand: He makes for a credible rock star. His musical performances are often impressive, and Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker even wrote one of his songs.

Indy Week Judd Apatow's Get Him to the Greek Get Him to the Greek lacks the emotional edge that characterizes the best Apatow-produced comedies, though it's still a very crude, very funny romp that shows Russell Brand can carry a movie. by Zack Smith 06/02/2010

Charleston City Paper A supporting character is hit-and-miss in Get Him to the Greek I get why the concept of a "spin-off" movie like Get Him to the Greek seems like a no-brainer — in theory. If you look at television, there's a history of taking supporting characters from successful comedies and launching them into equally successful starring vehicles, like The Jeffersons from All in the Family, Rhoda from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Frasier from Cheers (we'll conveniently ignore AfterMASH and Joey). by Scott Renshaw 06/02/2010
