  • Writers: Jason Segel
  • Genres: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Composer Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) has spent five years adoring his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), despite living completely in her shadow. He even works as the composer for Sarah’s CSI-type crime drama, co-starring William Baldwin (as himself), Crime Scene: Scene of the Crime, a job that dramatically underutilizes his talents. One day, Sarah comes to Peter’s place after he’s had a shower to tell him she’s breaking up with him and there’s someone else. Peter tries to talk her out of it and goes as far as to refuse to put his clothes on, but it doesn’t work. Devastated, Peter impulsively starts having sex with random strangers, but he is still unable to overcome his grief. Upon advice from his stepbrother (Bill Hader), he decides to take a trip to Hawaii and stay at a resort Sarah once mentioned; when he goes there, he is confronted by Sarah and her new boyfriend, the articulate and narcissistic (though newly “straight edge” after a stint in rehab) British rocker, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand). The sympathetic receptionist, Rachel Jansen (Mila Kunis) bears witness to the awkward meeting and gives him an expensive suite on the condition that he cleans up after himself.

During the credits, a preview is shown for Sarah Marshall’s new show with Jason Bateman — a detective crime drama similar to her last one, called Animal Instincts, wherein she plays a detective who is also an animal psychic.

Trevor, Max’s snitch, supplies him with information that leads him to three drug addicts in an empty train station. They attempt to hold up Max in a bathroom; instead Max interrogates one of them about his family’s murder, with no results. Next he visits Trevor’s apartment where Natasha Sax takes an interest in him. Natasha and her sister Mona Sax get into an argument and Natasha disappears. Max goes looking for her near a back room where people are using the drug “Valkyr” and is silently confronted by Jack Lupino, but Natasha takes him away. Max noticed Natasha’s tattoos and wants information so he invites her back to his apartment. However, after Natasha tries to seduce him and makes insensitive comments about his wife, Max kicks her out.

The next morning Natasha turns up dead with Max’s wallet at the crime scene. Max becomes the prime suspect with his old partner Alex Balder on the case. Alone in his office, Alex notices the tattoo on Natasha’s arm is similar to one found in the case file of Max’s wife. Alex tries to contact Max, but with no luck he quickly leaves for Max’s apartment. Max arrives to find the door is ajar and his place a mess with Alex dead inside. Someone attacks Max and knocks him unconscious.

After the film credits Max is shown arriving at a bar where he meets with Mona. She shows him a newspaper article about Aesir’s stock prices rising, next to a photo of Aesir CEO Nicole Horne.
