Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

THROWING IN THE TOWEL ON ROM COMS! - Bobbi Jones

8 Points

Viewer Rating:Bobbi Jones has rated Forgetting Sarah Marshall rating: 1 Star

This was billed as a male romantic comedy. Its star, Jason Segal, also wrote the script. I had high hopes. I like the fact that Jason Segal is no Brad Pitt. He's the ordinary bloke who looks in the mirror & thinks he's flexed his pecs when he's actually just jiggled his boobs. He's the guy in the Comfort ad patiently waiting for his date while she tries on her entire wardrobe, before finding that one soft sweet smelling blouse in the washing machine which just needs a belt & a pair of stilettos. He's unobtrusive, stays in the background, holding her handbag while she takes center stage at every function. Then she drops the curtain after 5 years while he's standing there broken hearted with just a towel. And there he lost me & the towel! Full frontal genitalia is not my idea of funny. AND he does it 3 times in this film! (I'd get the name of the Beowulf CGI man who buffed up Ray Winstone's abs, sweetheart!) Someone should have put a leash on Segal's self-indulgent creativity. I suppose the humour will appeal to grown men's inner teenager which never truly dies. We women have been slagged off for years over our chick flicks. Well boys, here's a Dick pix for nights when you feel like staying in & washing your hair!
