Memorable parts of Forgetting Sarah Marshall

-Russell Brand as the louche yet charmingly cool British rocker Aldous Snow. ("I was gonna listen to that, but then, um, I just carried on living my life.")
-The puppet musical Dracula ("Kind of dark, gothic Neil Diamond") and various other musical-theater references and undertones. (See also Jason Segel and NPH doing Les Miz.)
-Jack McBrayer playing basically the same character as he does on "30 Rock," except as a bewildered newlywed.
-The movie opens with a song by Cake and closes with a cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U" in Hawaiian by Daniel Ho.
