Best Judd Apatow Film (since 2007)

Considering Get Him To The Greek comes out on DVD on September 28th, what does everyone consider to be Judd Apatow's best film since 2007 (the year he start developing a serious cult following in my opinion)? The poll applies to anything he's written/directed/produced...

From reading some other threads, I'll assume he's too busy bedding a bird.

Seems like a weird date to start with. Forgetting Sarah Marshall for me too.

Funny People. Aside from some of the scenes with Sandler and Mann, I absolutely loved the film.

Yeah, I picked that date because that's when his name really started to become connected with his movies... if you know what I mean.

Superbad for me, although I have come to dislike almost every actor in it.

From the above options, I'll go with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, although I haven't seen Get Him to The Greek, yet.

/\ Yeah, I'm looking forward to it, just haven't been able to get out to the theatre much the past few months . I'll probably grab it from Redbox when it becomes available.

Yeah if you liked Forgetting Sarah Marshall you'll dig Get Him To The Greek for sure.

I liked GHttG but it wasn't half as funny as FSM.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I was disappointed with both The Pineapple Express and Funny People.

Superbad is terminally unfunny.

It was a toss-up between Knocked Up and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but I went with KU in the end. I enjoy a large cast of schmoes.

I specifically liked the music that Jason Segel wrote for FSM, I thought it was bloody well hilarious and brilliant. But I gotta say, I thought Get Him to the Greek's storyline was slightly more entertaining. It's a toss-up in the end.

Re: Best Judd Apatow Film (since 2007)

Pineapple Express, by a fucking landslide! It's not even in the same league as the rest, which are inconsequential little films by comparison. It's the only movie in the bunch directed by a real director with vision. It's really just a brilliant fucking movie, with a fantastic performance from Franco along with great bit parts from Danny McBride, Gary Cole and a bunch of others.

It's like the American Hot Fuzz, and I'd seriously say it's almost just as good as HF.

And Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a boring piece of shit.

As much as I wasn't the biggest fan of Pineapple Express, I will agree that Franco was quite brilliant in that.

I would've started the poll with The 40-Year Old Virgin and would have voted for that. Of the choices, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

I guess the main reason I didn't put it in was because I didn't think anyone would vote for it! My bad...
