Forgetting Sarah Marshall is 2008's Knocked Up. Produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Nicholas Stoller, the film stars Jason Segel and Kristen Bell and is about a guy who breaks up with his TV star girlfriend and goes on vacation to Hawaii only to discover she is there in the same hotel as him with her new boyfriend. It definitely looks a lot funnier than it sounds, which is why you must watch this trailer. Forgetting Sarah Marshall looks like a mix of Knocked Up and 40-Year-Old Virgin, but also the movie that The Heartbreak Kid should have been.
Like Seth Rogen before him, Jason Segel was in Knocked Up as one of Rogen's stoner friends and now it's his turn to star. There's just so many things I love about Judd Apatow comedies! Their use of a very no-name actor in the lead who always ends up being incredibly funnier than any mainstream actor. The ridiculous dialogue like "I'm here to murder you" that still comes off so funny. The crude sexual humor like at the end with Bill Hader on the laptop. And of course the regular Apatow ensemble cast including Jonah Hill, Bill Hader (the other cop from Superbad), and Paul Rudd.
