Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall ★★ 2008 (R)

Apatow produced this raunchy arrested male development comedy that stars (and was written by) second-banana Segel. Slacker couch potato Peter is an underachieving L.A.composer of TV music who's devastated when he's dumped by ambitious starlet hottie girlfriend Sarah (Bell). The woebegone Peter eventually decides to vacation at a Hawaiian resort but—ta-da!—finds Sarah and her new beau, self-absorbed Brit rocker Aldous Snow (Brand), are also guests. Despite frequent humiliations, Peter sticks it out, supported by brunette beauty Rachael (Kunis) and various odd hotel encounters. Segel is game since he gets naked (twice) and does a lot of crying and moping, but you're more likely to say “get over it already” than be amused. 112m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
