Forgetting Sarah Marshall Videos & Photos
Peter Bretter has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall. He's the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life. To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous, are sharing his hotel. But, as he torments himself with the reality of Sarah's new life, he finds relief in a flirtation with Rachel, a beautiful resort employee whose laid-back approach tempts him to rejoin the world. He also finds relief in several hundred embarrassing, fruity cocktails. … More

Critic Reviews for Forgetting Sarah Marshall
It's got an engaging cast and enough laughs to compensate for some shortcomings.
With pratfalls, yucks, a crying jag, and what is starting to seem like the requisite flash of nudity, Jason Segel becomes this year's adorably hapless movie schlub.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall does fall under the Apatow umbrella, but writer and star Jason Segel is the real creative force here, creating a fresh, funny script.
So easy to relate to, but it's the film's unpredictable nature, great characters and hilarious script that makes it the comedy of the year.
Audience Reviews for Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Cute, funny movie. Jason segal and Mila Kunis did a wonderful job. Russell Brand is hilarious. Full of fun romantic comedy cliches but well worth the 2 hours.
This is what happens when all the right people come together to do the right project. Funny and very memorable.
Sarah Marshall is one of those Apatow comedies that puts Slot A into Slot B and doesn't try to do much more than that. As a romantic comedy it sometimes relies on too many ideas from other films that share the same plot elements. Jason Segel also wrote the screenplay for the film, I think he is a hilariously funny guy but his character Peter, although likable and often funny is similar to Seth Rogen in Knocked Up and Jonah Hill in the Marshall spin off; Get Him to the Greek. As far as rom com's are concerned it's unoriginal but holds tightly together with raunchy humour that doesn't change it's tone but makes it even funnier. Full of charm and sharp performances, it's not an Apatow breakthrough like Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Knocked Up or Step Brothers it's very watchable and highly enjoyable.
