Forgetting Sarah Marshall
This is one comedy that I read the reviews and most of the reviews were positive reviews, which made up my mind that I would want to see this film. I managed to catch this film before the film ends run.
"Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel, "How I Met Your Mother") has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell, "Veronica Mars"). He's the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life.
To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand), are sharing his hotel. But as he torments himself with the reality of Sarah's new life, he finds relief in a flirtation with Rachel (Mila Kunis), a beautiful resort employee whose laid-back approach tempts him to rejoin the world. He also finds relief in several hundred embarrassing, fruity cocktails."
After watching this show, I am glad that I did not miss this how. It was great! It was about a guy who was dumped by his famous girlfriend. After which, he decided to go Hawaii to get his mind of the break off. Then, his girlfriend and the new boyfriend was there on holiday as well and it sparks off a whole lot of funny jokes. The movie was on the verge of being lame but it managed to maintain on the funny side most of the times. I was quite surprised by the first 5 mins of the show, the local censors actually left it uncensored! Haha!
The whole cast was not A-lister but they managed to make the movie their own. I was impressed by their natural in acting such movies as well. Overall, I give this movie 4 stars out of 5.
