Exceptional London cop Nicholas Angel is involuntarily transferred to a quaint English village and paired with a witless new partner. While on the beat, Nicholas suspects a sinister conspiracy is afoot with the residents.
Sidney Young is a disillusioned intellectual who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamor. His alternative magazine, "Post Modern Review", pokes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York based "Sharps" magazine it's something of a shock! It seems "Sharps" editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young's disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from derided outsider to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes. Initially helping him out at Sharps is colleague Alison Olsen, who has her own secret. Wither their friendship? Written by

When I was a kid, I used to think there was a special place where all the movie stars lived. A kind of "Shangri La". And if you could just get inside there, you'd be happy. Forever.

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People kept me as a friend!
I really like that Kristen Dunst has been getting out of her usual pretty teen roles. She's definitely been branching out these past few years I was unable to tell if Megan Fox was a really bad actress or if that was her role. I guess her role was just to stand there and look pretty but it seemed like she was trying too hard.
How to Lose Friends and Alienate People was great! Very funny. It had a darker humor and it was pretty heavy but there were so many very funny and unexpected moments.
I absolutely hated the main character at first but you were supposed to. He grows on you just like he does with everyone else in the film. He is endearing once you get to know him more but he is very obnoxious and outrageous at first.
There was this very sweet underlying story about regular people just trying to achieve their dreams.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. I haven't really seen anything quite like this in a while and I just love that type of humor.
