Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Richard Roeper called this one of the ten funniest movies he’s ever seen, but I don’t see the same thing. It’s still a pretty good flick, written by and starring Jason Segel. Mila Kunis, from That 70s Show does a surprising, Nia-Peeples-like turn as the love interest in Hawaii. She manages to play small but fill up a lot of screen. Very appealing and attractive. I like the way the film doesn’t take too any easy ways out, giving us direct, one-on-one interaction between the principals in all their combinations. There are some pretty scathing statements about television, too, that I found amusing, ‘though they certainly aren’t the emphasis here. One scene involving a gigantic chessboard really had me laughing.
