Wanna attend the top secret AICN pre-SXSW Screening-party for FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL with Kristin Bell, Jason Segel +...?

Hey folks, Harry here... This post is for SXSW Attendees that read AICN Only! On March 10th - at the SXSW Film Festival - a highly anticipated Judd Apatow produced comedy called FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL will be being screened. What nobody knows - as of yet - is that there is a top secret by invitation only AICN / UNIVERSAL / SXSW pre-party for FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. There will be 50 people at this party. A few AICN staff... the winners of this contest... and the stars and director of FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. Here's the rules. You must have a SXSW Badge or Film Pass to qualify. This will be checked at Admittance to the party. FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL is all about trying to forget an Ex, that's impossible to forget. Without mentioning names of the guilty/innocent - write up - briefly - the most heart-breaking/comical breakup of your life. - These stories will appear - without your names - at the end of this contest. You can be male or female - as break-ups happen to us all. Send the stories to HK at AintItCool.Com The deadline is this coming Wednesday. ------------------------------------------- What's going on at this party? Well - you will have the chance to mingle with Director Nick Stolller and the cast: Jason Segel, the titular Sarah Marshall (Kristin Bell) and Russell Brand. There could very well be other members of the cast, these are who have confirmed... thus far. There will be an open bar and food at this shindig. In Addition - if you get in to this party - your seat will be reserved for you at the Paramount Theater screening later on. The party will take place from 5pm to 7pm. The location is close to the Paramount Theater - and like I said - your seats will be held for you. I'll email the winners back with the location of the party.

    Didn't AICN already do this contest

    by beetlegeuse

    ...resulting in sad, pathetic, almost funny, but too sad to be funny, stories of geeks' girlfriends sleeping with other guys and breaking the geek's heart in the process. I read a couple of them and had to stop because the self-pity was overwhelming. It happens to everyone get over it, get over yourself, get over her and on to the next. New Contest Please!

    Russell Brand

    is such an unfunny son-of-a-bitch it can probably cause physical pain.<p> If he gets any kind of acting career off the back of this, boys, it's time to burn down Hollywood.

    In the *very* limited clip or two I saw of him being interviewed, he seemed decently funny. That said, you may turn out to be totally right; he looks kinda like a Big Show with hair.

    I just want her to be either at NY ComicCon or WizWorld Philly

    by Pennsy

    Realistically, those are my only chances, close-to-home-wise, to see her again. And I'm disappointed there wasn't a talkback on why she's still without a contract for Heroes' season 3. They're 'negotiating' to have her in one (and just one?) story arc. Hell, Ray Charles can see how that one's gonna end - with Elle as Sylar-fodder. There's a scenario I've cooked up which has Elle as next season's Biggest Bad. But that's not gonna happen. We may be on the countdown clock to her departure from the show. And if she leaves, it's a deal-breaker for this particular fan.

    by Pennsy

    Bell has to sweat it out on whether she's back next time while Micah, West, Mohinder, Monica, Molly - and freakin' Maya's job security is assured. Horseshit. These folks dragged the story to a halt, almost and should be on the out-the-door list before you even THINK about getting rid of Elle.

    ...Cant you get hold of something a little more interesting to watch? Or is this just like another Apatow test screening. I swear to god, I always feel like I'm the last person to see one of his movies by the time it comes out.

    If you really want to see a boring thread, head over to the Ellen Page/SNL TalkBack. "You're a stupid liberal" "You're a stupid conservative" back and forth for literally hundreds of posts. Delightful.

    Yes yes yes yes yes I am with you 1000%. A title like that turns me off to the film 99% of the time. I'll see this one, but only because of who made it/is in it.

    I would see a movie called "Slapping Jackie" any day. That's a great title actually.

    There's a test screening of this film coming up then, too. I can't make it, but I guess there's a chance that some AICNer will.

  • March 3, 2008, 8:02 p.m. CST

    Tell us more, Mullah...

    by Pennsy

    And in the interests of full disclosure, yours truly made E! Online's Kristin dos Santos weekly viewer mail today. I sent a question to her, never thinking it would actually be read, let alone answered, and it was the first question of the Q&A (!!). <p> (don't hold it against me, OK?). That was the first time I *ever* sent a question to any E! on-air employee.

  • March 3, 2008, 8:39 p.m. CST


    by Mullah Omar <br> <br> Sign up there and wait for the occasional invitation offer to roll in. If you accept the offer before a screening fills up, you go see a preview. I got an invitation to FSM earlier today (and previously for a Feb 27 screening - I couldn't make that one, either). I typically get at least 3-4 invitations per month, though people from other demographics probably get invited to different flicks.

  • March 3, 2008, 9:49 p.m. CST

    Thanks, Mullah...

    The Wedding Crasher Incident

    I was going out with this girl and I was all set to propose to her after we went to see the Wedding Crashers. Well on the way out of the theater she was hit by a car that was driving a "just married" couple, and died instantly.

    i don't hate bell at all.....b-b-b-but

    by slappy jones

    seriously what is the fascination people have with her? I am trying to be careful as I really don't hate her at all ..shes a moderately talented pretty girl who is kind of bland. I only mean that in that I just do not see what she has done to makepeopl rave about her the way somefolks do. I have friends who swear she is going to be this huge star and they think she is incredible. I liked veronica mars she was fine but she didn't transcend the material and make it anything more than what it was. A cleverly written little detective show. But is she really that much better then any other run of the mill tv actress out there?? lets face it she was good in veronica mars but she was absolutely terrible in heroes. thats par for the course with that show as everyone is pretty bad but I just do not understand this extreme fan base she has.

    by Mosquito March

    At first, I wasn't that into Bell. She seemed beady-eyed and kinda bland, like you said. But, the more I got into VERONICA MARS and got to like the character, the more it seemed like there was probably an actual brain inside the actress's head, and that made her stand out from all the other blonde TV chickies currently riding the airwaves. Then she convincingly played a doomed con artist on DEADWOOD, and it seemed like she could do things other than VERONICA. That said, I haven't seen her on HEROES. I watched the first season and didn't care enough about it to keep going.
