Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Jason Segal, Kristen Bell, Jonah Hill, Mila Kunis, Russell Brand
Peter (Segal) is heartbroken over being dumped by his TV star girlfriend, Sarah (Bell). He is openly vulnerable and hurt and becomes self-destructive. They end up at the same hotel in Hawaii for separate holidays – she with new rocker boyfriend (Brand) and he alone to cry in his bedroom. It’s extremely hard for him to forget Sarah Marshall when she’s right there under his nose with a major rock star.
He goes on a journey of heart-break recovery and eventually moves on from Sarah, finding inspiration in his music (he’s writing a Dracula musical). But it’s not that easy, and when Sarah wants him back, he messes things up with his potential new girlfriend, Rachel.
Both Brand and Hill are characteristically brilliant. Everything fits together perfectly and all the ‘bit’ parts make this a great movie. The Dracula musical is quirky as hell and is a great way to end the flick. Watch it more than once and you will laugh at bits you didn’t notice the time before.
