'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'

Oh my God. Someone actually made a really and truly enjoyable romantic comedy! Formulaic to perfection, it's the story of a hapless musician whose TV star girlfriend dumps him for the world's Britishest rock 'n' roll longhair. Here's what makes it work: Jason Segel's script takes this typical rom-com Mad Libs and fills in the blanks with sweet, relatable characters (not a Rob Schneider in sight!) and legitimately funny jokes. This movie dunked my week in delight and then stuffed it down the fun-time esophageal canal of entertainment. (See Movie Times.)
