Default 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' - High-Def Digest Review

Yes, it took us a LONG time to get to it, but I've been wanting to make sure we covered it. As a little midday bonus for this winter afternoon, we're circling back and reviewing a movie set in beautiful, sunny, Hawaii.

HDD newcomer Drew Taylor has reviewed 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall.' He says this is one of the Apatow Dynasty's crown jewels. This Blu-ray has good video and audio and almost exhausting extras. Recommended.

This was actually a decent flick, and definitely one of the better Apatow affairs.

Pineapple Express you can keep, but I thought this review was pretty spot on - Fun but not perfect i.e. comedic genius.

This film was garbage.



I never wanted to punch a dude so hard in the face than this big *****, Jason Siegel.



Every supporting actor was pretty cool in this flick, except Siegel.

Day one buy for me.....oh wait it's been out for 5 months? Where have I been? J/K, but I did think this was a funny flick, but I don't own it.

This is easily one of the best Apatow films made to date. It's unfortunate that it's worth was lost on the reviewer.

Also, the PQ of this one left much to be desired. I'd say it's closer to 3 stars out of 5.

This film is my third fav flicks of 2008 behind TDK and Walle.
Best Aparow production. I even wrote my own review on it.

I loved it.

I do agree about the skintone though. I didn't remember everybody looking so yellowish when I saw this in the theater. Thought the blues in the water and the sky seemed pretty muted.
