Saw this while snooping for info in the Philadelphia papers to see whats up with the Democratic race.


http://blogs.phillynews.com/inquirer/flickgrrl/

That's Jason Segel, screenwriter and star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, bellying up to the bar, giving new meaning to the word "highball" and proving that there is gender parity in at least in one small corner of Hollywood . Segel -- like his producer, Judd Apatow -- believes that Hollywood should objectify men as well as women, although except for Kathy Bates in the hot-tub scene of of About Schmidt I can't immediately think of female nudity in the service of comedy, can you?
To continue the spring-fever theme of the prior post, here's a link to "Boys in the Buff,"I a pictorial feature from the Los Angeles Times about actors who drop trou. (Hat tip, Anne Thompson.) I agree with Thompson that Ewan McGregor is missing from this list, and so is Richard Gere. But none of them made my heart race as fast as Denzel Washington in the opening sequence of Devil in a Blue Dress , where he slithered across a room in an undershirt and pleated trousers. The woman sitting behind us in the theater -- and this was the weekend of the first O.J. Simpson verdict, if I remember correctly -- sighed libidinally, "They say that this is a divided country; I say that Denzel can unite us!" You said it, sister! What do you say?

Oh Oh - there's a taboo tiki in the bottom left corner! Oh, and I don't think I would care to sit on that stool!

The barstools are beautiful, though. Nothing a little recovering can't fix....

Saw the film today - there's a bit of tiki in it, although they do seem to confuse pineapple juice + Malibu with a mai tai when he refuses it one morning.

Music wise there's a bit of interest - close attention in a bar scene yields a Hawaiian-language version of Extreme's "More Than Words" being played by the house band (the performers are not credited in the credits, though), and if you stay through the credits, Daniel Ho's version of "Nothing Compares 2U" plays. Swear I heard some Alfred Apaka in there too, but the music credits roll by swiftly.

As a film, we rank it better than "Superbad" and on par with "Knocked Up" as far as Apatow-produced ventures go. We quite enjoyed it!

Cheers,
Rupe

Side note -
Jason plays a character named Marshall on "How I Met Your Mother", and the film he wrote is "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

Coincidence... or conspiracy?

I want to believe,
Rupe
