The premise itself lends hilarity to the picture. Jason Segel plays the role of a musician who is a sensitive, comical, and dependable man. Kristen Bell plays Sarah Marshall, his ex-girlfriend and the ultimate heartbreaker. Russell Brand plays her boyfriend as well as a world famous musician. Each character possesses surprising quirks. Jonah Hill plays an ambiguous waiter who is both stoned and in love with Russell’s character. The jaw-dropping Mila Kunis plays the woman at the front desk who falls in love with our hero to be. Together they unleash their inner emotions, surf, drink, dine, explore, fornicate, and break hearts. The setting is Hawaii at a world class hotel which Jason’s character stays in for free due to the automatic sympathy from Mila.
This film contains original humor, brilliant writing, excellent jokes, and acting that is superb. The audience is guaranteed to laugh, to feel anguish, and potentially they will weep. Judd Apatow films are becoming industry cult classics that will cement his legacy and that of those around him.
Jason Segel’s character is a musician obsessed with creating a Dracula puppet opera show that turns out to be both the most bizarre spectacle ever witnessed and the most hilarious onscreen musical since Guys and Dolls, although there is no direct comparison.
Overall, although it would be a tragedy to spoil the storyline twists or to deliver the same comedy from the film in this review, it should be noted that I want you to watch this film without reservations, without hesitation, and if you are unattached or with a lovely significant other, watch this film immediately. If you are raw or fresh from a break up go watch 88 Minutes and enjoy some rest.
