The 100 Best Movies Of The Complex Decade

16. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Director: Nicholas Stoller
Stars: Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Russell Brand, Bill Hader, Jack McBrayer, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd

Prior to his charming Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Jason Segal, yet another hilarious neophyte from the Judd Apatow camp, never struck us as a leading man type—funny as hell in Knocked Up, yes, but not an obvious headliner. And, for that matter, we were also sleeping heavily on Mila Kunis—figuratively, though, not literally. Which sucks.

Co-written with director Nicholas Stoller, Segal's warm-hearted comedy of heartaches cleverly and tenderly flips the gender roles in romantic comedies; here, Segal is the jilted, lovesick softie, while Kristen Bell is the quasi-villain.

Packed with one-liners galore, smartly written side characters, and a breakthrough turn from Russell Brand, Forgetting Sarah Marshall proved that date night movies can appeal to both men and women. Especially when they've got Mila Kunis in a bikini.
