Forgetting Sarah Marshall

I hope this is a hit. I love Jason Segel with all my heart. First Seth Rogen, now Jason Segel. Will Martin Starr be next?

Yes, the movie dragged a bit. And no, it isn't as good as The 40-Year-Old Virgin or Knocked Up, but who cares? Yes, it was a bit cartoonish but it was damn funny at times. For the record, Veronica Mars is not pretty but the other love interest in the film was definitely easy on the eyes. Rudd was good. Jonah Hill was annoying.

I love the three movies a year from the Apatow factory. This one was a bit lightweight but when you put out fun movie after fun movie, they can't all be Superbad.

And for the record, the Jason Segel naked scenes were not nearly as funny as the penis shots in Dewey Cox.

I wonder if Apatow is even going to try to put out a movie that even attempts to really give a female perspective on relationships. Perhaps Paul Feig should get all the credit for doing such a good job with that aspect on Freaks and Geeks?

Wow pretty bad review for a movie you liked. I loved it, every second of it. Other love interest is the chick from that 70's show. Very hot...except she dated maculy caulkin...gross..

Jonah Hill was not annoying, the side characters were all great.

As romantic comedies go....top notch. Who cares if he hasnt done the female perspective, let some one else do that. Feig is to busy rockin the office

i liked it - didn't love it.

i guess hill wasn't annoying per se but the part as it was written was a bit too much for me after the 7th appearance.
