Forgetting Sarah Marshall – 4 stars

Forgetting Sarah Marshall harmonizes the best of The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up while jettisoning some of the excesses of the latter.  Jason Segal retreats to Hawaii to get over being dumped by his girlfriend, Sarah, who just happnes to be vacationing at the same resort with her new flame, Brit rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand).   All the characters are a scream, from Paul Rudd’s crunchy surf instructor to Bill Hader’s supportive friend, but this is Brand’s movie and he absolutrely kills in every scene.  He’s so good that when he’s not in a scene, the movie can drag a bit.
