Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is another laugh out loud film from the guys who made The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad. This one is very fun, often hilarious and pretty well acted. Jason Segel is good in his film starring role, he's funny and quite charismatic as well. Kristen Bell is good but her role (as the title character), seems really short. Mila Kunis is very good and extremely charming, giving her best film role to date as the sweet receptionist who nobody's fooling. However, The standout of the film is Russell Brand who steals every second of every scene he's in and actually seems to have been given the funniest material. The Supporting characters such as Johan Hill, Jack Mcbrayer, Davin Mcdonald and especially Paul Rudd, are funny as well. ...oh, The Direction and Screenplay are fine as well. Forgetting Sarah Marshall is impossible not to like.
This film has many uproarious scenes, but the scene where Segel sings "Dracula" had me in tears.
