“Forgetting Sarah Marshall” leaves you with some not so forgettable quotes
Good films emboss our culture with legendary dialog like, "You had me at 'Hello,'" and "We don't need no stinkin' badges." Forgetting Sarah Marshall's gift to our collective phraseology is this gem: "I saw him beat-up a guy with a starfish."
When Peter Bretter's girlfriend, Sarah, dumps him, he flees to Hawaii where he can forget about her. But that's not bloody likely because Sarah and her new flame, rock star Aldous Snow, pick the same resort at which to vacation.
It's the latest, and quite possibly greatest, product of the Judd Apatow and Shauna Robertson factory which also gave us Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
Best suited for 20- and 30-somethings, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is literally a laugh a minute, and like American Pie, if you render-away the crudeness, even quite charming.
A great cast--Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell, That '70s Show's Mila Kunis, SNL's Bill Hader, 40-Year-Old's Paul Rudd and Superbad's Jonah Hill--and a wildly witty script make for an enjoyable 112 minutes, the capstone of which is a Dracula opera performed by puppets.
