If ya want to see this guy naked....
...Then go ahead and see "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". Kristen said it best, "full frontal in the first five minutes" Yes full frontal, and as if the initial shocker wasn't enough they did it again and again, all at the very beginning of the movie. The part that made me feel so bad was that there was this 70 year old man in line trying to pick out a movie and he was asking me whats this movie , whats that movie. And I had no clue so I was like I don't know and then he said I want to see "Baby Mama" and I looked at my cousin Katie, because it wasn't on the board and since I made this my problem I needed assistance so she helped me, and explained to him that it wasn't out yet! Then he comes back up to me a minute later and said "I am so sorry, but what is "Forgetting" - because on the board they only show half the title.
I said "OOOOHHH, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, thats what we are seeing!" in my normally perky helping voice!
He asked "Yea is that a comedy" and I said "Yes"
So after a little time passes, and all of us Girls finally meet up for our monthly movie and dinner - and we walk into the theater I see him sitting there front and center - well into the first five minutes of the movie I was regretting my decision to be so helpful. I just encouraged a Senior Citizen to watch a movie that has probably had a tramatic effect on his life, ok I am so dramatic but I can at least guarantee it ruined his movie going experience! I fealt like a misguided youth, even at 31...
Well the movie was so strange like "Superbad" but even worse. At least I could laugh at "Superbad". This had its ok moments and then it disgusted me again and again and again. Sometimes I have to see these movies a few times before I get the laughs, but If I don't ever see this again it will be ok with me!
There was only one part of the movie that had me in stitches (thats an over exageration for my giggle) and I can't even believe I remember it! I can't believe I am even going to share but this dorky newlywed character said" If God was a City Planner he wouldn't build a Playground next to the sewage dump" ahhhhh words to live by! LOL!!! - and that was the only real laugh that "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" got out of me!
