Forgetting Sarah MarshallDirector: Nick Stoller,
In desperate need of a vacation after being unceremoniously dumped by his TV-star girlfriend, a man travels to a lavish Hawaiian resort to nurse his wounds and forget his heartache, only to discover that his ex and her handsome new boyfriend are currently staying at the exact same island hot spot. Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) may be just another struggling musician, but for the past six years he's been dating Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), one of the hottest stars on television. Sarah is everything in the world to Peter, so when she kindly but firmly tells him that they should each go their separate ways, he is absolutely devastated. Later, after attempting to salvage his ego by awkwardly attempting to become a womanizer and nearly losing his job because of a nervous breakdown, an emotionally fragile Peter attempts to put the past behind him by escaping to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu. While at first it seems as if Peter has discovered the perfect prescription for a bad case of lost love, his plan soon turns to dust when Sarah and her new rock-star boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand), turn up at the exact same resort. Though accepting Sarah's lavish new lifestyle won't be easy for the crestfallen Peter, the laid-back companionship of flirtatious resort employee Rachel (Mila Kunis) -- not to mention a continuous regimen of fruity cocktails -- goes a long way in mending the wounds of a broken heart. Forgetting Sarah Marshall was penned by Segel and produced by Judd Apatow. Fun with Dick and Jane screenwriter Nicholas Stoller makes his directorial debut. The cast also includes Paul Rudd, Bill Hader, Jack McBrayer, and Jonah Hill.

Great movie! Takes a funny approach to the miserable time when you do break up with someone!
I procrastinated seeing this in theatres even though everyone kept telling me it's so much better than Superbad (my favorite film of last year). Well I got a chance to view it recently, and it is nowhere near Superbad, in my opinion. It is hilarious and Russell Brand as " Aldous Snow" is my favorite. If you like the movies below, you have to see this, it's the same comedy. Also, be alert to turn away because this movie contains 4 or 5 shots of Jason Segel's member. It adds comedy to the scene, but unexpected. Check this out.
The plot of this movie is a little far-fetched but who cares because it's hilarious. The actors are consistent and create laughs throughout!
I really thought this would be stupid. But it wasn't at all. Every character was great. Paul Rudd's character made me laugh so hard that I cried.
this is a great purchase, as it not only has the original version of the movie, but also the uncut version, not to mention a number of goof ups, and some other interesting footage. jason segel is terrific in the role of "peter bretter" as are the other players. cute, funny, ridiculous movie. you will love it.
While this movie is hilarious it also is true to heart if you ever have gone through one of thos break-ups when your heart gets ripped out of your chest, stomped on, and then thrown back into you with the cords ripped off and all tattered. yeah...anyway this was one of my top films of 08, and is good stuff, its nice to see a funny comedy with good actors that works. If you liked knocked up you will enjoy forgetting sarah marshall...i know i will never forget her..wj
This film featured strong acting turns. The script was somewhat predictable, and took some strictly for laughs detours, but the quirkier subplotting and surprising revelations about some of the characters made the length worthwhile. Overall, a satisfying watch.
I did not originally want to see this movie because I am tired of the appatow productions and not really a fan of Jason Segel or Jonah Hill, but when I rented this the musical ending was totally worth it. A musical about Dracula featuring puppets! Brilliant! Russell Brand as Aldus Snow also did his due diligence. Definitely worthy of adding to the dvd library!
Having never seen it before, I picked up Forgetting Sarah Marshall on a whim, after having a good friend of mine tell me it was pretty funny. At first, I knew it would be somewhat funny and enjoyable, and was also looking for forward to seeing Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis throughout it, (who are 2 very pretty young actresses), but I didn't realize how much I would wind up enjoying it. The only main thing I wasn't a big fan of was seeing Jason Segel's anatomy a couple of different time, but then again, if they can show all sorts of female nudity in different movies, I guess it's only fair that they show some male nudity, so it isn't a big deal. Besides, it's easy to overlook though, because the movie itself is so much more than that. Not only was it meticulously funny, but it was also somewhat charming and even a bit inventive in some regards...and all of the actors do a good job at their roles. I don't want to say too much about the film, or it might spoil some of it, but if you like romantic comedies, or if you just plain like comedies in general & can tollerate a little bit of crude humor & nudity, then this movie is right up your ally.
