Double-bill of comedies. In 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' (2008), when struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) is dumped by his long-term girlfriend, TV star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), he goes into a downward spiral.
After a clumsy attempt at becoming a lothario backfires, he almost loses his job when he has a nervous breakdown.
In a last ditch effort to put the past behind him, Peter heads for the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu for a well-deserved holiday.
Everything goes swimmingly until Sarah turns up at the exact same resort accompanied by her new boyfriend, the wildly successful rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand)...
In 'Knocked Up' (2007), slacker Ben (Seth Rogen) and up-and-coming career girl Alison (Katherine Heigl) meet at a bar and end up having a one night stand.
Eight weeks later, Ben is shocked when Alison asks to meet up with him and reveals that she is pregnant.
Despite having little in common, the two decide that they have to at least try to make some kind of relationship work for the baby's sake.
