Wendy's Films of 2010 #4: Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

"It's like a little holiday with Hitler" may be my favourite line from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a comedy that gives just that little bit more than the typical vacuous, gag-filled trash that seems to fill the theatres.

That isn't to say there is no place for vacuous, gag-filled trash, but this film takes it to the next level, adding well-written characters and enough heart to make it worthwhile. Kudos go to Mila Kunis whose comedic timing and sexy unencumbered attitude mixes superbly with Jason Segel's awkward raunchy humour. Give it a try if you like a little unaffected romance mixed with your comedy and don't mind the odd penis joke.
