|Title:||Forgetting Sarah Marshall|
|05.01.08||Alamo Village|| As expected, I liked this quite a bit. I loved how in addition to it adhering to the rules of this kind of genre (Swingers) and keeping it a romantic comedy, it also deviated enough to make it feel at least somewhat realistic instead of completely formulaic.|
I also love how the new boyfriend is more than he has to be and you actually end up liking him and laughing with him rather than at him.
This seemed like a real fun movie to make (Hawaii!) so it's lucky that it's also good, probably due to Jason Segal and his script. The editing is also very well done... most of the inserts and flashbacks are just as long as they need to be and use the cut for emphasis nicely. I know therre's a ton of material missing that will probably end up on the DVD, but this theatrical experience was nice and tight.
Yeah, I liked this a lot. Solid comedy.
