This was a very funny movie with a couple of gorgeous ladies for eye candy. Mila Kunis is very loveable as the laid back/crazy island chick that tries to help Peter get over his ex. The only problem is that its kind of hard to do when she shows up at the same resort with her "new" boyfriend, Aldous Snow. Speaking of Aldous, what a great character. Russel Brand is a hilarious comedian/actor and the new movie about Aldous is pretty damn funny too (Get Him To The Greek). After you watch this and like his character, you'll want to go check that movie out next.
If you're not into the whole typical relationship dynamic in movies (i.e., boy loves girl, boy loses girl, boy tries to get girl back) you should still give this one a chance. There is enough comedy throughout to keep you interested. There are even a few musical performances that are entertaining to say the least. Who thought a muppet musical would be a good idea?
Quick summary if you don't like to read long reviews: hilarious scenes, cool music, some sex scenes (without nudity in them), and a little brief nudity as well...All in a beautiful, tropical paradise.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a rare breed of comedy. It's a romantic-ish comedy that will please women and not make men cringe in fear if their girlfriend or general significant other asks them to see it, plus they don't have to be afraid to ask to see it because it will please women too. It's signature Apatow and Co. It has raunchy sex comedy, but its also heartfelt and you feel genuinely sorry for our protagonist. I was uproariously laughing from start to finish, but Forgetting Sarah … more
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of those films you approach with low expectations. Despite an intriguing cast -- I've enjoyed both Kristen Bell and Jason Segel on TV -- it just didn't look much different from the constant flood of romantic comedies that threaten to overwhelm the cineplex with a tropical tsunami of blandness. Forget that. It's hilarious. And quirky. SO quirky. We can lay the credit for the film's quirkiness to Segel, who wrote the movie before starring in it. … more
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a favorite of mine. It's a movie I can pop into the DVD player and watch multiple times during a month. The humor in this movie is different from the newer comedies. I feel as if newer comedies now days are down right stupid. Anchorman, 40-year old virgin, etc. I don't like stupidity and I don't think it's funny. But Forgetting Sarah Marshall is actually funny. The dialog isn't just a stupid word and everyone thinks its hilarious. It catches … more
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a half and half sort of film. What's good is very good, and what's bad is pretty bad indeed. Here's what I liked: Jason Segal as the guy who gets dumped. He was the picture of morose self pity and the story's beginning, and his performance grew more subtle as the plot progressed. Essentially, it's about a nice but shallow guy who learns from his pain to be a more self aware, emotionally connected man, and Segal demonstrated … more
Yet another venture into familiar Judd Apatow territory. This time it's a telling the tale of some laid back slacker who's trying to get the girl, but is cursed by a lack of cheekbones and buldging muscles. Only this time it's in Hawaii of all places. Our lead is Peter who composes music for a TV cop drama and for five glorious years dated the show's star Sarah Marshall. That is until she dumped him and started dating a rock star, Aldous Snow(great name). Now they are … more
Each time a movie comes out by the guys of the Judd Apatow gang we're immediately bombarded by reminders that Apatow is behind such films as The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up. In 2008 there were two films in particular that came around. In the late end of the year was Pineapple Express. That's the one everyone saw. In February 2008 however, Forgetting Sarah Marshall hit the theaters. It wasn't directed by Apatow, he sat on board as a producer. But of all the … more
I rented this movie and was thinking it was going to be a brainless teenager movie but I was pleasantly surprised. All of the actors were excellent and the scenes were beautiful. Russell Brand is quite a quirky kind of guy but hey Katy Perry is dating him he cant be all bad. He is pretty funny in this movie and so is the guy who is off to forget about his ex girlfriend Sarah marshall. His puppet show at the end and the songs were really a plus and made this movie even better because … more
