Forgetting Sarah Marshall
I wrote about Russell Brand
a few weeks ago, and now he's blowing up as he's hosting the Video Music Awards this weekend.
I was able to watch Brand on Forgetting Sarah Marshall
this weekend, and his character, British rocker Aldous Snow, was the funniest thing about the movie. He throws his lines in the most casual, offhand way that made it so funny:
"Excuse me, I lost a shoe, like this one. It's like this one's fellow." (Holds up a shoe.) "It's the exact opposite in fact of that. Not an evil version, but just, you know..."
It also helps that he was the type of guy who thinks that a see-through shirt and leather pants are appropriate clothes for a luau.
The girls are great too. Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars
forever!) plays the title character while gorgeous Mila Kunis, who really ought to be a bigger star, plays the main romantic interest. What a choice.
Anyway, the movie was part of the last bunch of DVDs I got from Quiapo the other day. I was in the mood for stupid comedies, so aside from Sarah Marshall, I also got Walk Hard
, The Promotion
, You Don't Mess with the Zohan
, and the new Harold and Kumar
movie. I also got The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
and Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind
. I also came away with a DVD that had a collection of Robin Padilla films and another with FPJ films. I was going to get Ace Vergel and Jeric Raval collections, but I figured that I should save those for the next trip.
