Critic Reviews for Forgetting Sarah Marshall

All Critics (183) | Top Critics (44)

  • 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.

  • It's got an engaging cast and enough laughs to compensate for some shortcomings.

    Oct 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.

  • 'Sarah Marshall' remains a film of glorious moments and memorable scenes, lovingly crafted characters and sparkling one-liners.

    Apr 25, 2008 | Rating: 4/6 | Full Review…
  • Jason Segel has what Nicolas Cage and Gene Wilder and a precious handful of other witty actors have: The ability to make egregious humiliation and painful neediness a source of limitless mirth.

    Apr 18, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Halfway through I realized that I'd lost most of my standards, maybe under my seat, and was enjoying the erratic evolution of the nonsense.

    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.
