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.
'Sarah Marshall' remains a film of glorious moments and memorable scenes, lovingly crafted characters and sparkling one-liners.
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.
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.
The cringingly wacky scenarios, offbeat characters and comic dialogue serve up a crowd-pleasing, laugh-filled experience.
Audience Reviews for Forgetting Sarah Marshall
The perfect example of a clever comedy that made me laugh more in a silent way (on the inside, if that is possible) than out loud, while pulling me gradually into its story by how touching it actually is, with a deeply honest narrative and a homogeneously great cast.
This is what happens when all the right people come together to do the right project. Funny and very memorable.
[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] 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.
