Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Instant comedy classic that holds up just as well after a long-due rewatch. A premise that could be straight from the era of Sturges or Hawks, meshed perfectly with smart mid-2000's raunch. Perfect cast (Favorite Segal role so far, and Mila Kunis has had a pretty good career so far, but she has yet to return to being this lively and luminous in a performance), and even if you know it nearly line-for-line, little details in every performance make each rewatch worth it. Like the best releases under the Apatow masthead, there's a big heart beneath the dick jokes.
