That was actually something I liked about Forgetting Sarah Marshall. There was no character in that film who was entirely a good person, nor anybody who was essentially evil. Just people who made decisions and some were selfish, others were to help others. Sarah was probably the least likeable person, but you could see where she was coming from when she took it hard seeing Peter with Rachel, and also how she apparently was very earnest with trying to make their relationship work.
Did anybody else notice that all of the main characters in that have Hebrew names except for Aldous?

Others are simply annoyed at the position he had to take based on what he believed, and are unhappy with the outcome, while it has its merits, wasn't what was promised or expected initially. He's kind of had to wear the bad lieutenant outfit for that one, even though intelligence pointed to it (even if that intelligence was Powell saying "Ummm, George, they've got them... I'm sure of it. We oughtta do something about it."
