Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) has spent six years idolizing his TV-star girlfriend, Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell). But his perfect world gets turned upside down when he finds himself dumped and alone. An unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown do nothing to help matters.

So Peter decides to clear his head and take a holiday in Hawaii. But ol' Sarah Marshall is staying at the same hotel with her tragically hip new British rocker boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand). Just as things couldn’t get any worse for poor Pete, he meets pretty hotel employee Rachel (Mila Kunis).

Comedy powerhouse Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin) produces this film written by Freaks and Geeks / Knocked Up star Jason Segel and directed by debutant filmmaker Nicholas Stoller.

Judd Apatow's comedies are always watchable and sometimes hilarious, but with the latest to emerge under his aegis, I have to admit it is getting harder to defend them against the charge of misogyny.

Yeah, it's pretty funny. And it's a pretty accurate depiction of a certain feature of male romantic humiliation. But it's also a little -- and this is one of my two misgivings about the movie -- expected.

It's a film with some home truths and offbeat characters in ordinary situations mixed with ordinary characters in offbeat situations. The laughs are there, but it's a shame they're a long time coming.

It's too soppy to truly please Apatow groupies and too vulgar for rom-com junkies. There are some hilarious parts, but overall Forgetting Sarah Marshall is fairly underwhelming.

A tropical sex comedy that’s a little unfocused, but Segal and co throw plenty of funniness at the wall - and most of it sticks.

Straddling the boundary between chick-flick and dick-flick, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is an enjoyable addition to the Apatow comedy canon. It's not as hilarious as The 40-Year-Old Virgin don't expect to laugh out loud but it should save a few arguments about what to see on date night.

If Peter's imperfections are exaggerated, it's to amusing effect: his frequent heavy sobbing fits can't fail to entertain. And that's one of the genius touches of this comedy. It's prepared to expose the vulnerabilities of its hero and humiliate him completely - to the point where you've just got to love him and laugh at him in equal measure.

I cant get you out of my head

A very funny tale about a young guy who is still in love with his ex and tries to get her out of his mind and takes a holiday only to find his ex and her new boyfriend are at the same place plenty of giggles and ohhs that sads along the way all in all a half decent good film

Nice

Whilst this movie may not be as ground breaking or have as many laugh out loud moments as Knocked up it is definitely worth going to see. My favourite thing about this movie is Russell Brand as Aldous snow. He was an absolute scene stealer I just wish his part could have been bigger. Jonah Hill also shines in this movie despite his small role. They both...
