Romantic Comedy - This is a very raunchy romantic comedy aimed at adults. There is a
sweet romance at the core, but it is not for one easily offended by
nudity and constant sexual content and references.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words, 19 S-words, 2 GD's, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with related nudity; some non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Hits; an animal stabbing. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Raunchy verbal and physical jokes.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good Forgetting Sarah Marshall is surprisingly sweet.
USA TodayFull Review Good As one might expect from a movie with the Apatow stamp, the subject matter is racy, the laughs rowdy and the dialogue ribald. But there's an unmistakably gentle heart beating staunchly beneath the raunch.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 88 moviegoers:
TEENS:Nearly all the females enjoyed this movie very much. A few of the guys weren't too impressed but most enjoyed it. Recommended.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Nearly all the males and females rated "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" very high. Highly Recommended!
ADULTS:The adult reviews certainly aren't bad but they aren't as high as those of the younger moviegoers. I suspect older moviegoers were much more sensitive to the very high sexual content. If that doesn't bother you then I highly recommend "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."
Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall (Kristen
Bell). He's the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life.
To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand), are sharing his hotel. But as he torments himself with the reality of Sarah's new life, he finds relief in a flirtation with Rachel (Mila Kunis), a beautiful resort employee whose laid-back approach tempts him to rejoin the world. He also finds relief in several hundred embarrassing, fruity cocktails.
