Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
Jason Segal Shines As A Star
The movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a sleeper in a class of many great romantic comedies. As a film the movie flowed well, and had a seemingly flawless view of the life and struggles of the main character. Whether it be a comedic flashback or a small gesture you barely catch, Forgetting Sarah Marshall has a humorous moment for everyone. I can promise that even if you are not a fan of Judd Apatow this film will make you laugh, and you will forever remember parts of this film. I personally am not a huge Apatow fan myself, however this film was intriguing to me at first because of the actor Jason Segal. You may recognize Segal from the hit comedy show How I Met Your Mother as the character Marshall Erickson. I knew prior to seeing this film that Segal was a funny man, and he seemed like a good enough actor to star in a movie. So this got me to the theater.
Segal's performance in the movie was stellar, and as a fan of his acting prior to the film, this just backed up my beliefs of his skills. His acting led to the viewer wanting to know more about this character, and the struggles he now faces. He makes you feel his heart ache and sorrow, and does a good job of making you somehow relate to this man. As a viewer he immediately grabbed your attention with his goofiness, and from the first five minutes on you view him as almost a friend. Segal brought the best acting to the table in the movie, but he was backed up by a surprisingly strong cast. Not only was the cast newer to film at the time, but most of the names were a pleasant surprise to me as a viewer, and now if I see them in other movies I immediately connect them to this film. I enjoyed Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and if you are a fan of goofy, R-rated, Romantic Comedies then this movie is a perfect fit. See It! This movie also led to somewhat of a sequel in the movie "Get Him To The Greek".
