Forgetting Sarah Marshall (Hulu, Peacock)
Released in 2008, Nicholas Stoller’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall, shortly grew to become a must-watch when it comes to breakup films, however not due to a miserable and heart-wrenching telling of infidelity and heartbreak (although these are each featured right here). Instead, the film, which stars Jason Segel (who wrote the screenplay) as composer Peter Bretter, a man who escapes to a Hawaiian resort to attempt to neglect his actress ex-girlfriend Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), is a sequence of hilarious jokes and vignettes that inform the story of rebirth and new love at somebody’s lowest level. And with a forged that features Mila Kunis, Russell Brand, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, and nearly each superstar within the early 21st Century, there’s lots to absorb throughout this raunchy comedy.
