Forgetting Sarah Marshall

You can check out this movie at it's official website- http://www.forgettingsarahmarshall.com/

Or you can read my review here.

I loved this movie! In the first five minutes the wholesome, do gooder image that Marshall from the show 'How I Met Your Mother' has cultivated over the past seasons was completely shattered when we are treated to a full frontal shot of him. Entirely. Naked.

It was actually extremely funny, and a tiny bit uncomfortable. The premise of the movie is that Peter (Jason Seger) gets dumped by his tv star girlfriend (played by Kristen Bell) and to get over her after weeks of suffering, he goes to Hawaii.

Unfortunately for them both, he goes to the same place she is staying- with her new guy- whom she was also with for the past year. Ouch. Mila Kunis plays a cute dysfunctional customer service front desk clerk who takes pity on him and books him into the best suite and even though he could just leave, he stays- comedy ensues.

There are a ton of small funny things that I won't spoil for you, but all in all I laughed (a few times out loud) and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I do not suggest you watch it with your parents or anyone that it would be uncomfortable to see a naked man with- seriously, it gets tiny bit graphic... but in a well intentioned hilarious way...
