    Honestly the only reason i went to see this film was to support Kristen Bell aka VERONICA MARS and i was a little disappointed seeing her screen time cut short .. good to see her play a B**** .. the film offers the usual apatow crude humor and plenty of male frontal nudity .. it was funny not hilarious ....

    THIS FILM WAS FUNNY! I would say, whilst it wasnt perhaps as good as previous offerings, there is more than enough to make you laugh. Its not going to win any oscars and there are some cliche'd character types ie token black guy phrases and christian newly weds, however there is plenty of variety in the comedy and a decent enough story.

    Very entertaining comedy, the cast is terrific, especially Jason Segel. The characters are well developed, the writing is terrific. Enjoyable, well done.

    Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a funny movie that has some stellar performances from the entire cast. The good thing is that it doesn't always go down thr typical comedy road of stupidity.

    A funny movie that isn't too ridiculous or too serious. It has an enjoyable cast that work well together on screen. Jason Segal showcases his talents in writing the screenplay.

    I am not typically a fan of raunchier comedies, but Forgetting Sarah Marshall is an exception.

Jason Segel, Kristen Bell, Russell Brand, Mila Kunis, Paul Rudd, and Da'Vone McDonald, are all great in their respective roles. However, the writing here is the strongest part, as it manages to handle the raunchy jokes without letting the film turn into some nonsense teenage comedy. Instead, the film is as mature as needed for the subject. Additionally, the characterization is very good. There is a good amount of depth here for each character, which is surprising given the film's genre. Yet, each character has their own set of things that makes them tick, which is fun to watch. Overall, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a very funny, entertaining, and mature look at relationships. Expand

    Segel makes an engaging impression throughout Forgetting Sarah Marshall, gamely making himself the butt of many jokes that involve Peter's non-macho proclivities.

    If Forgetting Sarah Marshall doesn't reach the inspired heights of "Knocked Up" or "Superbad," it runs a very respectable second.
