    Judd Apatow manages to package up the seediest and most repulsive aspects of the comedy genre and make it sell. Clearly he's a more clever man than his films suggest, but if you judged him on the basis of this effort (which he financed) it would be very hard to find anything redeeming about him.

    This hideous film stars Jason Segel (who's also the film's author) as a lazy 30-something male who composes incidental music for TV dramas. For some preposterous reason, his character spends a lot of time unclothed (sparing the viewer no detail), which makes him unlikable and, surprisingly, rather boring. No wonder he loses his girlfriend, the Sarah of the title, to a British rock star (the consistently unfunny Russell Brand), giving him the excuse to sleep with countless women to "get over her". This, he finds, isn't the way to cure his upset, so he takes himself off to Hawaii to forget Sarah Marshal.

    It's surprising how many films try to make their audience laugh using unlikable, loathsome characters. I didn't much mind Russell Brand as a comedian. I never found his over-exaggerated, filthily executed delivery style at all amusing, but at least I was safe by avoiding his stand-up shows. Now he's turning up in romantic comedies, playing a horribly annoying English celebrity (aka himself) without any of the charisma his fans claim he has. Jason Segel isn't really any better. His depressed, beaten-man-faced humour is less obnoxious than Brand's habit of alienating the audience, but does nothing to improve the tone of the film.

    Kristen Bell is an average actress at best, but even she seems short changed with the weak script and 1-dimensional characterisation. But if you have watched any Judd Apatow comedies before you'll know that in the world these movies present, females are there for one reason: sex. So between the scenes of laddish humour, women are used as objects for indiscriminate bed bouncing. This is sick minded, misogynistic and irresponsible, considering this is the type of trash that is aimed at teenage boys. I would worry about any guy who finds a connection with the onscreen male characters or starts to view them as soul mates or role models. The levels of nastiness displayed in this romcom are more nauseating than many sickeningly gory horror movies.

    If Judd Apatow continues to send these tokens of lowlife smut out into cinemas, and audiences keep going to see them, we will undoubtedly end up as morally bankrupt as the people that make them. Save yourself while you still can.
