Forgetting Sarah Marshall

After his impossibly beautiful girlfriend dumps him, a slacker schlub takes a vacation in Hawaii where high jinks ensue, he somehow attracts yet another impossibly beautiful woman, and he comes to realize his amazing potential. Apatow devotees and detractors alike will find exactly what they’ve come to expect from anything bearing his name: A level of sophistication and cast of reasonably endearing characters that fall just short of saving this formulaic, broad comedy from itself.
