Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Courtesy of GMMR reader, Jen, I was able to catch a sneak peek of FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL last night here in Boston. I gotta tell ya, it was hands down one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I’m talking laugh out loud, tears in my eyes funny.Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) wrote an amazing script and really held the movie for the entire two hours. All the actors, both lead and supporting, were spot on perfect. The movie was nasty, gross, showed a lot of skin (I’m not sure if I’m ever going to watch HIMYM again and not think that yes, I saw Marshall completely naked…a few times), but at the same time it was never without heart…a lot of heart.

Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, and Russell Brand were all fantastic in their roles. As were the supporting cast which included many familiar faces including Seth Rogen in a hilarious bit and SNL’s Bill Hader who was one of the best treats of the movie – he was so damn funny. 30 ROCK fans will just about die when they experience the comedic genius that is Jack McBrayer in this movie. Think Kenneth the Page, but sexually active. Hilarious!! Oh and the always perfect Paul Rudd did NOT disappoint.

The audience erupted in applause a few times during the movie and of course at the end. Which, by the way, if you do see the movie do NOT leave when the credits start rolling. You’ll miss one final scene that alone is worth the price of admission.

Movie critic I’m not, but I really just had to tell you all how great this movie was. I’m definitely going to see it again when it hits theaters on April 18th.

    The local morning show guys keep raving about this movie. They saw it a couple of weeks ago and I feel like I’ve heard so much about it from them. They also had Jason Segal in studio on Monday for most of the show and it was pretty cool. He talked a lot about the movie. I am really excited to watch this one.

    There’s some great clips from the movie (especially the R-rated ones) at forgettingsarahmarshall.com

    I LOVE the one featuring Jack McBrayer

    I still can’t believe we showed that full-frontal scene at PaleyFest!

    But yes, I completely agree. I went to see this last week and really enjoyed it. I actually didn’t like the trailer, but I think the movie is so much better than the trailer makes it look. Jason Segal’s script brings a lot of heart, wit, sharp observation and, of course, puppets. 😉

    I saw a sneak preview on Tuesday, and it was definitely really good. I saw it at my college, so the crowd loved all the crudeness. I can see this movie taking off.

    Geez GMMR,

    I coulda told you it rocked on Monday. Oh wait. I did.

    But yeah, it was great, I agree.

    I was lucky enough to go to the red carpet premiere of this movie and party last night.

    The movie was AWESOME! (Not to mention seeing virtually all of the stars and fun people in attendance- Macaulay Culkin anyone?!)

    I haven’t seen this movie yet (had to watch Harold & Kumar first!), but apparently all the real “sarah Marshalls” are pissed with the ad campaign and are lashing back!
