  • Russell Brand is, for once, well cast in the role of vague, vain singer Aldous, who's also the object of obsession for a waiter and aspiring musician in the Hawaiian resort.

  • 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.

    October 18, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's got an engaging cast and enough laughs to compensate for some shortcomings.

    October 18, 2008 | Rating: B-
  • 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.

    I was going to only give this two and a half stars but then Dracula the Musical.

    I can't believe I've wasted two hours of my utterly short holiday break to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Definitely not my kind of movie.

    From Judd Apatow and Jason Segel comes the outrageously hilarious comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The story follows Peter Bretter who goes on a Hawaiian vacation in an attempt to get over his break up with famed television star Sarah Marshall, only to find that she's also vacationing there with her new boyfriend. The cast is especially good and includes Jason Segel, Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, and Russell Brand, who all deliver excellent performances. In addition, the writing is well done and feels genuine; partially because of how raw and savagely honest the humor is, which really works for the film. However, the directing is a bit weak and not all of the humor works. But despite a few rough edges, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a wickedly fun romantic comedy that goes all out.

    This is what happens when all the right people come together to do the right project. Funny and very memorable.
