Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)


What a funny film! "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" had me in stitches from beginning to end. We have seen the plot line before, guy gets dumped by a girl he idolized and goes through hell until he meet that special girl, who opens his mind and sets his heart free, causing him to realize how imperfect his former love truly was. One example of this is "Along came Polly". But what really got me with this film was how believable and yet totally parodied the character were. There are some classic scenes through out this film, keep an eye out for the Dracula Rock Ballad in particular! The cast is awesome in every role, the comic timing is super fine tuned and the film ties it all up with a whole lot of heart! "Finding Sarah Marshall" is a film I think almost anyone will enjoy!

The Plot:

Peter is a composer and a likable sad sack who's devastated when his girlfriend of five years, Sarah Marshall, the star of a cheesy CSI-style crime show, dumps him. He weeps, he rails, he mopes. Finally, his step-brother Brian suggests Hawaii, so Peter heads for a resort on Oahu where, as he's checking in, he sees Sarah and her new beau, Aldous, a polymorphous perverse English rocker. The weeping and moping starts again, until Peter is rescued by Rachel, a thoughtful hotel clerk who invites him to a luau and to hang out. Although he constantly runs into Sarah and Aldous, Peter starts to come alive again. Will Sarah realize what she's lost, and what about Rachel?
