Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Source: DVD (SS2)

Director: Nicholas Stoller
Writer: Jason Segel
Release Date: 18 April 2008 (USA)

This film is from the same guys who brought us "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up". First thing that struck me about the film was the cast, duh ... who are these guys!
Jason Segel ... Peter Bretter
Kristen Bell ... Sarah Marshall
Mila Kunis ... Rachel Jansen
Russell Brand ... Aldous Snow

Anyway, the plot goes like this ... a just-dumped Peter (who happens to be a musician who writes jingles for Crime Scene what-cha-ma-call-it show in this movie) takes a Hawaiian vacation, and comes face to face with his TV star ex-girlfriend, Sarah at the resort. Not only that ... he has to deal with her being there with her "new" boyfriend, British enviro-rocker Aldous Snow!!

Best described as ... A comedy about getting dumped, and taking it like a man.

Lots of cool one-liners, including ...

Kemo: Are those sad tissues or happy tissues?

Surfing Instructor: There's only one cure for pain like that.
Peter Bretter: What?
Surfing Instructor: Weed. Ya got any?
Peter Bretter: No.
Surfing Instructor: Well then let's just go surfing!

Gag Me Girl: Hi.
Peter Bretter: Hi.
Gag Me Girl: Hi.
Peter Bretter: Hi.
Gag Me Girl: Hi.
Peter Bretter: Can you stop doing that?
Gag Me Girl: Do you want to gag me?
Peter Bretter: You brought a gag?
Gag Me Girl: Yeah, and handcuffs. So do you wanna gag me?
Peter Bretter: Well, I kinda want to now.

Ps. Warning! Strictly for adults ... lotsa nudity and references to anatomy!
