Jason Segel Has a 4th of July Comedy Most People Forget About

When most people think of Jason Segel, their minds go to The Muppets movie or How I Met Your Mother. Some diehard fans of Segel’s might even think of Freaks and Geeks. But what many people don’t think about is the comedy Segel wrote and starred in that’s set over the Fourth of July holiday — Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ cast celebrates the Fourth of July in the movie 

The feel-good romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall was released in 2008. The movie stars Segel, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Russell Brand, Bill Hader, Paul Rudd, and Jonah Hill. 

When composer Peter Bretter (Segel) gets his heart broken by the unattainably hot actor Sarah Marshall (Bell), he takes a healing trip to Hawaii. But, unbeknownst to him, Peter is staying at the same resort as Sarah and her new boyfriend, Aldous Snow (Brand). Fortunately, Peter has the gorgeous front desk woman, Rachel (Kunis), to take his mind off of the awkward situation. 

Part of Peter’s stay at the Hawaiian resort involves attending a Fourth of July luau. “Happy Fourth of July, Peter!” Rachel exclaims as he enters the event. But, of course, Peter’s fun only lasts a short while until he must watch Aldous serenade Sarah with his hit song “Inside of You.”
