Letters: Take Heart, Sarah Marshalls
MELISSA BLOCK, Host:
Now, on to your movie-related e-mail. On Friday on the program, we talked about the promotional campaign for the movie "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and some of you wrote in response to that.
In the film Sarah Marshall dumps her boyfriend for a rock star, and he tries to get over it. Universal Pictures has placed ads around the country with messages like "You do look fat in those jeans, Sarah Marshall."
Ms. SARAH MARSHALL (Resident, Greenfield, Massachusetts): I do not look fat in those jeans. That's all I've got to say.
(Soundbite of laughing)
BLOCK: That's my co-host Robert Siegel, laughing with Sarah Marshall of Greenfield, Massachusetts. She's one of three real Sarah Marshalls we talked to.
One comment came in from Annie Hall of Atlanta, Georgia: I send best wishes to all the Sarah Marshall out there, Ms. Hall writes. Since 1977, my name has been associated with a movie and I've had a more entertaining life because of it. May Sarah Marshall be as good to you, all you Sarah Marshall, as Annie Hall has been to me.
BLOCK: And Christine Hacker Hickman of Blue Springs, Missouri writes, when I call IT support at work it's a series of bad jokes. She goes on, even the bad guy on my son's favorite cartoon is named The Hacker. But I refuse to let it bug me; I even kept my maiden name after I got married.
