Rachel Meets Peter: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

This week on YHMAH, Joey and Amanda watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and somehow manage to review a Judd Apatow movie before a Penny Marshall, Woody Allen, Rob Reiner or John Hughes movie.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall







But writer/star Jason Segel is a relatable, flawed lead opposite both Kristen Bell as the titular Sarah Marshall, and Mila Kunis, the babely customer service lady; Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a gem. Not only because it’s the first taste of Jason Segel’s Muppet obsession, but it’s a sad break-up movie with a hilarious all-star cast that will keep you laughing and maybe even crying.

Joey and Amanda try to guess which of them is the bigger sad sack, and Amanda needs more information about Rachel’s (Mila Kunis) plans for going back to college before she can decide whether Rachel and Peter stay together. 10/10 would recommend watching again.
