You need to see "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"

'Cause this? Is one funny movie. I was sort of so-so on seeing this one, I'm lukewarm on the Veronica Mars chick, and Russell Brand? Why is everyone going GaGa over this guy? I saw the trailer in the theater, and thought "really stupid movie."

In my opinion? I was wrong.

I totally get it. Everyone in this cast was really funny. The chemistry between them was such that you know they had the best time working on this film - and I laughed a lot. I laughed even harder the second time through the next night. I think this may be one of those movies that you can watch over and over again through the years and it just gets funnier. I GET the Russell Brand thing now. He's the character that could have been one you'd hate... but he's so charmingly offbeat and funny - even though he's just a disgusting character - you really like him. Something that could have been just bad dialogue from someone else is hilarious from him.

I won't lie. This is a vapid movie full of juvenile, raunchy, filthy humor - and tons of sex. (I am truly surprised they could come up with enough material for a G rated trailer.) Not something for family movie night for sure - I'm going to be taking it off my iPod next time I sync it because I fear my children might somehow see it and be scarred for life. I can't say I didn't laugh, because I'm a girl who is amused by really classy high brow humor like that.

Don't be ashamed... I flung it out there for the world to see. I heart trashy comedy. Besides, I learned about 14 years ago that if I wanted to enjoy movies with Husband that even had a hint of chick flick in them then boobs and low brow humor needed to be involved.
