Directed by Nicholas Stoller, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is full of witty one-liners and has a rather original love story, plus exotic locations to feast your eyes on.
I can’t promise you exotic locations in each of these good movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy them.
Movies that are like Forgetting Sarah Marshall that I have chosen for you have these elements in common: they are funny, feature a love story and a few quirky elements thrown in, too.
I chose some titles based on the plot and high profile cast. To me, this guarantees a good all-round entertainment.
If you like Jason Segel, who played Peter, the lead character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, you will probably want to see him again in another movie.
His pairing in Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz works really well on screen: he plays the “puppy dog” character who falls in love with her, but she keeps rejecting him.
Even though the storyline is at times predictable, the comedic value of Cameron Diaz‘s performance cannot be underestimated.
She is sassy and unconventional – I guess most of us would have liked to have a teacher like her! Oh, wait! There’s also Justin Timberlake being nerdy and sweet.
Go to this article if you want to watch some other black comedy movies like ‘Bad Teacher’.
Great comedic chemistry on screen between Julia Roberts and Rupert Everett.
Oh, wait, there’s Cameron Diaz in there, too! And Dermot Mulroney (is he the marrying kind? You can also see him in The Wedding Date, 2005).
This film is packed with good one-liners and there’s some sing-along, too.
That makes it a good match to Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which also features music quite prominently.
I simply cannot write a list of movies like Sarah Marshall and not include Friends with Benefits.
Continuing with the stellar cast theme, romance and laughter, here we have Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis who literally sizzle on the screen.
This is more laid back and pared down in terms of storyline, regardless of the fast pace of the dialogue. Youthful, energetic and sexy without being vulgar.

Plenty of comedy and laugh out loud moments in this film, starring and directed by Ben Stiller, and there’s even a tenuous love story in there somewhere.
Sometimes, Zoolander is cartoonish and slapstick in its humour, and that’s where the charm lies in this film.
It isn’t intellectual but it has become a cult classic. And with a cameo from David Bowie, this film winks at popular culture and pokes fun of it.
Summary: relationship guru finds a challenge. Starring Will Smith and Eva Mendez, this romantic comedy is light and fast-paced and has some great comedy moments (my favourite is the food allergy scene).
Music also plays an important role in the film and the soundtrack is catchy – there’s also a scene where relationship guru Hitch, played by Will Smith, teaches some cool dance moves to one of his clients looking for love (played by Kevin James).
These romcoms are definitely feel good movies: with plenty of laughs and a sprinkle of romanticism, they will cheer you up on a rainy day. What’s your favourite from this list?
