Forgetting Sarah Marshall ★★★

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a better film than it is. It's a sweet movie, a tender movie, a funny movie, a moving movie, a light movie, an emotionally charged movie. And yet, it isn't a sweet, tender, funny, moving, light, emotionally-charged movie. The elements never quite blend, but rather the film spins from one to the next, keeping the ingredients separate. It's a good movie, made up of great parts.
