#206: Forgetting Sarah Marshall / Sarasota Film Fest / The Visitor / Top 5 Vacation Movies
Just when you feel like you're not getting enough full frontal male nudity, ribald oral sex jokes and Paul Rudd in your life, along comes the perfect remedy in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," the latest comedy from producer Judd Apatow starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell. Adam and Matty take a moment to deconstruct some of the recurring themes in the Apatow canon from an auteurist perspective and laud Kunis for a breakout, Bacall-esque performance. Plus, team Filmspotting emerges from the beaches of Florida minted with a fresh sun-burned glow and some thoughts on their experience at the Sarasota Film Festival and their all-time Top 5 Vacation Movies.
Plus, a conversation with Richard Jenkins and Hiam Abbas, stars of the new film "The Visitor," from actor/writer/director Tom McCarthy ("The Station Agent").
Also on the show: Massacre Theatre and The Matadors, our Pedro Almodóvar Marathon Awards.
Music by The Josh Davis Band courtesy of Authentic Records.
