Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall(2008)

Grade: A+

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is one of the best chick flicks of all time; its one that both guys and girls will love. Forgetting Sarah Marshall is about a nice guy Peter (Jason Segel) who is an awe of his tv star girlfriend Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell) and is left heartbroken when she breaks up with him after being together for 5 years. In order to try and get away from the heartbreak he books a holiday to Hawaii, but coincidentally bumps into Sarah and her zany new lover, British rock star, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand). Forgetting Sarah Marshall is HILARIOUS; I could not stop laughing. Russell Brand made me laugh so much; people can slate him as much as they want, but that man is a fantastic comedian.

There were some great performances, especially from Segel and Bell. Bell is subtle and not too over the top as the bitchy Sarah Marshall, yet still makes her highly unlikeable. Mila Kunis is always charming and highly likeable; she plays the understanding reception at the hotel that Peter develops a crush on. Bill Hader also made me laugh a lot in this. This film is unforgettable and definitely one of my all time favourites. As well as funny and raunchy moments there are also plenty of sweet moments. All in all there are so many memorable moments and its a film I can watch over and over. I highly recommend this!
