Consensus: With ample laughs and sharp performances, Forgetting Sarah Marshall finds just the right mix of romantic and raunchy comedy.

Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It's got an engaging cast and enough laughs to compensate for some shortcomings.

Jason Segel has what Nicolas Cage and Gene Wilder and a precious handful of other witty actors have: The ability to make egregious humiliation and painful neediness a source of limitless mirth.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall does fall under the Apatow umbrella, but writer and star Jason Segel is the real creative force here, creating a fresh, funny script.

With pratfalls, yucks, a crying jag, and what is starting to seem like the requisite flash of nudity, Jason Segel becomes this year's adorably hapless movie schlub.

Halfway through I realized that I'd lost most of my standards, maybe under my seat, and was enjoying the erratic evolution of the nonsense.

So easy to relate to, but it's the film's unpredictable nature, great characters and hilarious script that makes it the comedy of the year.

'Sarah Marshall' remains a film of glorious moments and memorable scenes, lovingly crafted characters and sparkling one-liners.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

Cute, funny movie. Jason segal and Mila Kunis did a wonderful job. Russell Brand is hilarious. Full of fun romantic comedy cliches but well worth the 2 hours.
Albert Kim
Good balance of raunchiness and romance. Funny but it wasn't as funny as I'd like it to be. Still a good time to sit back and relax.
Joshua Wilburn
This is what happens when all the right people come together to do the right project. Funny and very memorable.
Sanjay Rema
Segel and Brand really put on a show while Bell, Kunis, Rudd and Hill support them well. A very funny and well written movie.
