Burning her photo? So not going to get you over her. Showing your penis to all of America?
Sarah Marshall: I feel I've been feeling We're leading different lives.
When I was 15, my parents took my friends and me to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall. To this day, I'm not sure why I thought the latest Judd Apatow-produced comedy was the best Saturday night outing for a church youth group in Savannah, Ga. My conservative parents surely wondered the same thing when, in the first five minutes, a naked, flaccid, dripping wet Peter Bretter Segel gets broken up with by his hotshot actress girlfriend Sarah Marshall Kristen Bell and proceeds to have lots of cringe-worthy rebound sex with strangers. It's safe to say, Mom and Dad didn't go to the movies with me for a long time after that.

Quite the pairing for my initiation into adult film-viewing: one, a terrifying and bleak murder movie, the other, a movie that starts with Jason Segel hanging out with his flaccid, dumped penis for all to see.

Jason Segel is responsible for two of the most cringe-inducing, hands-in-front-of-your-face moments in the recent history of television, both of which occurred during the sole season of NBC's Freaks and Geekson which Segel played bright-eyed burnout Nick Andopolis. Only, he couldn't keep the beat if it were on a leash, and he spazzed out during an audition, finally breaking down and accepting tearful defeat.
Jason Segel, who scripted the movie, plays Peter Bretter, a composer unhappily employed on bland TV theme music and immersed in writing a rock opera on Dracula. She, too, has loftier ambitions and dreams of a film career, but her only cinema role has been in a tacky horror movie about a mobile phone that kills its users. After five years together, Sarah tells Peter she's leaving him for another man.
One day, she suddenly ends it and naturally, it destroys him, leaving him in a pool of despair. To collect himself and try to move on, he packs up and heads to Hawaii for a bit of fun, getting a room at a resort near the beach, only to find out that Sarah is also there … with her new boyfriend, rock star Aldous Snow Russell Brand. Thankfully, Peter befriends the adorable hotel concierge, Rachel Mila Kunis.
