Peter (Jason Segel) is a Stalker - Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a fun movie with brilliant actors and catchy, hilarious songs. You can't help but laugh while getting "Dracula's Lament," "Inside of You," or "We've Got to Do Something" stuck in your head. There's so many great moments in the film with an excellent supporting cast from Bill Hader, Russell Brand, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Jack McBrayer and so many more. Jason Segel (Peter Bretter) and Mila Kunis (Rachel Jansen) have chemistry that you can't take your eyes off of, but... There's something just beneath the surface of this movie that I couldn't help but notice in my last viewing. 

How is it possible that Peter ends up at the same resort as Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell)? Why does he stay at the same resort after finding out that she's already there with her new boyfriend, rock star Aldous Snow? I always thought that it was a legitimate accident, and just an unfortunate coincidence... But is it really? When you stop to think about all of the coincidences in the movie, you start to realize that if it happened to you and your ex showed up at a remote resort and constantly ran into you and your new partner throughout the next week... you probably wouldn't think so at all.
