@amberduffer agreed lots of laugh out loud moments and great cast 9/10 great movie
One of the funniest movies ever...The cast & the story are both awesome!
This is going to be the best movie coming out this year. Debut writer Jason Segal is a brilliant actor and then u have Judd Apatow who is just fantastic. Lastly one of the best aspiring actreses in hollywood at the moment Kristen Bell is just fantrastic. I cant wait for this film.
Welcome Jason Segel to the new pack of great comedic writers/actors. I recently saw a screening of his new movie and left the theater more than impressed. Apatow's crew has been running on fumes as of late, while getting more media exposure at the same time, which could have amounted to more sub-par films. Thus, it was a perfect time for Apatow to push Segel to branch out and run with his own ideas. Forgetting Sarah Marshall falls somewhere between 40-YOV and Knocked Up on the scale of hilarity. When the movie started a little slow, I wondered if it was simply an excuse for Segel to see his penis about 4 feet long onscreen. It didn't take long, however, for FSM to find its way. Segel can pull off hilarious moments by taking a humble, almost self-deprecating approach to comedy (This is probably due to Apatow, as he has instilled this talent in most of his crew. Segel ranks up there with Rogen when it comes to this style, however.) Once Segel heads to Hawaii, the movie sky-rockets. While Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Bill Hader, and the ridiculous Jack McBrayer provide a couple enjoyable scenes, the weight of this movie fell on the shoulders of Segel and Russell Brand. This crew made a great find when they decided on Brand. He and Segel complement each other, never competing for face-time (!), but in a way that only makes the movie funnier. Needless to say, Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis fit the good/evil balance for the women commonly seen in Apatow's films. Bell played her part well and everyone I talked to was surprised and impressed by Kunis. The story was pretty well-balanced and flowed really well. One great thing about Apatow's crew is that they usually carry a decent plot throughout their hilarious movies, and FSM was no different. I can't say enough about Segel's show-stopper at the end of the film (that landed him his next writing gig, no surprise). My only gripe is that Hader and Rudd never seemed to be turned loose. Rudd has to be next in line to land the lead in one of these films. I expect to see more of Brand after this film, as well.
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox StoryWalk Hard is, hands down, one of the funniest, most underrated films of 2007. In fact, I think the only 2007 film that competed with Walk Hard simply in the amount of times I laughed was Blades of Glory - and considering that I cried from laughing so hard in that Will Ferrell skating flick, that's high praise indeed. While watching Walk Hard, I was very heavily reminded of Airplane. They're both stupid-yet-simultaneously-smart parodies that obviously enjoy spoofing the crap out of a certain genre, and also throw out as many jokes as is possible to see what will stick. Since Airplane! was released, many 'stupid parodies' followed that tried to recreate that movie's manic energy and constant barrage of jokes, but I'd say that Walk Hard is the only film of that subgenre that has matched Airplane. I never thought that would happen, but it just did. Walk Hard works so well because the script is actually smart and rather accurate in making fun of the genre - which is, in this case, musical biopics. However, along with containing subtle, tongue-in-cheek jokes that exagerrate some of the cliches in biopics, Walk Hard contains plenty of off-the-wall, ridiculous humor. This nice balance between subtle and crazy humor makes for one entertaining, hilarious comedy - and it's one of the rare movies that only becomes more and more amusing as it goes on. By the end, I wanted more - which is rare for a present-day comedy. Hilarious stuff right here. FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALLForgetting Sarah Marshall is my favorite Apatow production yet - just edging out Knocked Up. The film's storyline may be a tad predictable, but the characters and sense of humor is anything but predictable. This is an incredibly loveable, raunchy comedy that has only grown on me since watching it - and it seems like one of those movies that I'd only love more on a second viewing. It also happens to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I'm not sure that I've ever seen so many amazing, hilarious people in one movie. The seriously awesome cast, along with the clever script, is what makes Sarah Marshall just so damn funny. Starting off - Jason Segel was a perfect leading man. He was amusing and likeable, and his much buzzed-about nude scene was hilariously awkward. Russell Brand as a ridiculous rocker and Mila Kunis as a sweet-but-tough love interest are also outstanding. However, the rest of the cast is also amazing - including Kristen Bell, Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, and Liz Cackowski in a small but hysterical role as Bill Hader's nosy wife. It's as if all the actors and actresses in the film were competing to see who could be the funniest - and there really wasn't a weak link. Anyways, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is absolutely, completely hilarious and likeable. It also happens to have one of the wackiest, most bizarrely amusing last 10 minutes I've ever seen. An awesome movie that I can't wait to watch again. You will definitely laugh while watching this one.
Smokin hot The one thing I love about all the Apatow movies is that throughout all the sexual humor and jokes is heart. Forgetting Sarah Marshall has heart but not as much as 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up. I think that's what separates this movie from those two because this isn't on the same level as those. However, this movie is still god damn funny. I laughed out loud a lot. My favorite character was Sarah Marshall's new boyfriend, Aldous Snow. It's strange because you hate this guy and love him at the same time. He brings some really funny moments in the film. Most of the Apatow gang appears in this including Paul Rudd as a pothead surf instructor and Jonah Hill as a creepy hotel employee. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. To sum it up I'll just say one thing. Dracula Puppet Musical. Nuff' said.
FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL A- Worst. Screening. Ever. After failing some half a dozen times to project a clear picture without boom mics making an appearance in every scene, 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' finally played to a theater packed full of its target audience. 600 college students. Well, it was worth the wait. 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' is almost certainly another classic straight from Apatow's seal of approval. It's brilliant. Gold, yet again. It takes another familiar formula, but 'Sarah Marshall' pulls it off like few could ever dream of. Laugh-out-loud funny, incredibly raunchy, but with a great story to be told. This is a must-see, and I doubt there will be a funnier film this year. Apatow's acting troupe are clearly set for life. Whether it's a starring role or a small supporting appearance, Apatow has never faltered to remain faithful to his 'family', many of whom have been with him since the short-lived 'Freaks and Geeks'. And this time around, it's Jason Segel who gets the opportunity to showcase his talents by writing and starring in his own vehicle. Segel has absolutely no problems carrying 'Sarah Marshall', and no about qualms baring all. Literally. Segel pushes the envelope for what's allowed in an R-rating, and it's truly unforgettable. Segel, you've got nothing to be shy about. Apatow, who produces 'Sarah Marshall', continues to set the bar for the sex comedy. Like 'The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', and 'Superbad', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' continues to restore the genre to glory by delivering nearly two hours of sustained laughter. It isn't afraid to knock down barriers rarely explored in film, and it's why these films continue to be so fresh and so enjoyable. It takes the basic ingredients and runs with it to new heights. To all those in the Apatow posse, don't stop doing your thing. Please. Forgetting 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' will be a tough thing to do. A great film, from its penis-flopping beginning to a Dracula musical. What more could you ask for? You won't forget it anytime soon, and why would you want to? With a star-studded cast and near flawless execution, 'Sarah Marshall' is every bit as good as anything we've seen from Apatow in the past, and once again delivers something you do not want to miss. Like the film says, "God put our mouths on our heads for a reason." Well... maybe that means something else entirely, but our mouths do get quite a workout.
Delightfully funny, Segell outdoes himself in how i met your mother-like hilarity.
I watched a screening of this tonight, and while it did have its funny moments, overall I was disappointed. Was there really a reason for the full-frontal nudity? I thought that it was pointless and took away from the movie. I think it was only added in for shock-value, but wasn't nessecary. The storyline was very generic and lacked creativity. Girl leaves boy, boy goes crazy from depression, girl and boy run into each other again, boy falls in love with new girl. Add in some male nudity and generic jokes, and you have the synopsis for this movie. And I normally like these kinds of movies alot, but not this one.
Another classic Apatow, with the biting wit and laugh out loud humor you would expect. However this film has as much, if not more heart than other Apatows. It really excels at making every character human (including Sarah Marshall), more than Knocked up did, and really is a very mature, realistic view at the end of a relationship.
Overall, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is by far one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen. The cast is fantastic & probably my favorite in an Apatow comedy. Also, you can definitely add this one, another comedic gem to Apatow's already outstanding resume. If you are a fan of his, you will more than likely love this one as much as I did. Best movie of the year... DAMN STRAIGHT!!! PEACE OUT!!!
Predictable but is funny without a doubt. Some of the best scenes are already in the trailer but to be fair those pieces are hilarious. I'd rate it slightly below Knocked Up but that's not an insult; this is an exceptional romantic comedy.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall was better than what I expected. It was a great comedy that didn't have the "same old stuff". The movie dared to do different things and because of that, was an all out laugh movie. I don't remember the last time I saw a movie and laughed so much, I was still smiling when I walked out of the theater. This movie is a must see!
The funniest movie I have seen so fat this year. It does not quite reach the same level of greatness as Knocked Up, or The 40 Year Old Vigin, but it comes pretty damn close.
A really likeable comedy that may not be as laugh out loud hilarious as other Apatow-gang flicks but is just really entertaining....sure at first you can tell the editing is pretty sloppy but Jason Segel's character of Peter brings it altogether in the end, Segel delivering a performance that is so damn likeable that he may just be the everyman that Seth Rogen wishes he could be...dont get me wrong Rogen is hilarious, but Segel has that quality that you feel like you see some of yourself in his personality...Overall, despite some editing and direction problems, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is just really likeable, providing a vehicle for Segel which will no doubt lead to more comedic starring roles
One of the first scenes in Forgetting Sarah Marshall will leave some unexpecting viewers shocked. Not since Borat do I remember so much full frontal male nudity in a mainstream film. If this "turns off" some viewers, don't worry because this occurs mostly in the beginning and one scene in the end. Following the tradition of many Judd Apatow's productions, FSM does not disappoint. It uses the same formula of raunchy humor and "heart." Like Knocked Up, it includes an attractive successful female together with a mediocre man. It also sadly gives few funny lines to its leading female characters. Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell) is portrayed as a cheating, bitchy prude. The supporting cast makes up for this which includes Bill Hader as his brother from home, Jonah Hill as a starstruck waiter, Jack McBrayer as a religious newlywed struggling with his sex life and Russell Brand as a sex-crazed rock star and also Sarah Marshall's boyfriend. Some reviewers have said that FSM is too predictable. Although this is true, it does not deter from the quality of the picture. There aren't too many comedies that are unpredictable and most people watch comedies for the humor, not for a complex script. I did have issues with the structure and flow of FSM, which were like a hodgepodge of events. Still, this is the best movie of 2008 thus far.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Street Kings is a cop drama that hasn't received much love at all. Everyone that I know that has seen it... really enjoyed it. I gave it a shot & may I add that it was pretty damn good. Keanu Reeves plays a rough-n-tough L.A. cop. His performance is excellent & probably the best of his career besides The Matrix movies & Speed. The rest of the cast is great & everyone put on a strong performances, especially Chris Evans from Fantastic Four fame. Overall, this is a pretty gritty cop drama that kept me interested from start to finish. Not perfect, but very well done for director David Ayer (Training Day), the entire cast & the rest of the crew. :)
GOOD is this film
