Must Watch: Judd Apatow's Forgetting Sarah Marshall Trailer

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.

You know I've loved all these comedies so far, and I cant wait for this one, not sure about the Pineappel express but the other one, June looks great too.

I bet the Red Band trailer for this film will kick serious ass. (If/When they release one) 'Pineapple Express' 'Year One' 'Drillbit Taylor' 'Step Brothers' 'I Love You, Man' and 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' will make two more straight years of Amazing Comedies from the Apatow Crew.

OK... I've now seen the 'Drillbit Taylor' trailer. It may not be up to the Superbad/Knocked Up level of comedy, but it could be a decent movie with some good laughs. (hey, it's possible!?)

This looks like it could be great, but as a Brit i must say that the inclusion of Russell Brand as the new boyfriend does not sit well with me. He's all over TV in the UK and most people i know find him very grating as a comedian. Hopefully he won't be too irritating in this.

I'm still wiping the tears from my eyes from laughing so hard at that laptop bit. I think they got another winner...

I find it coincidental that the Kristen Bell's character's last name is Marshall. Any of you who have ever watched How I met your Mother will know what I'm talking about. This movie looks awesome. Tack it onto the list of movies I want to see in 08.

For some reason it seems like an Adam Sandler type film for me.

Jonah Hill's fat mug again?

Remember, Segal--and Rogan before him--were both alums of Freaks and Geeks, too. They go back a long way w/Mr. Apatow.

RUSSELL F*ING BRAND? Take it from someone who knows, America - you do not want to give that man the keys to your country. I strongly advise you to boycott this movie, just to scrap his chances of breaking out* on your side of the Atlantic. *Like a disgusting skin condition.

This was an incredibly stupid movie. The jokes were dumb, and there was lots of gratuitous sex thrown in just to get people to come see it. Because it's not funny enough to want to see it otherwise.
