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
Megan Fox was cast in her role before Transformers (2007) was released. Director Robert B. Weide had hoped he would have been the one credited with uncovering this new talent and so after Transformers (2007) was a big hit and Fox quickly becoming an international sex symbol, he remarked he was disappointed, not for her but for the fact he wasn't the one who first brought her to the cinematic stage.

At the party, Sophie Maes (Megan Fox) gathers her hair in her right hand, holds it above her shoulders and lowers herself into the pool. She walks across the pool in water that is just deep enough to wet her bust and as she climbs out of the pool we can see a distinct "tide mark" on her halter-necked dress, above which her shoulders and neck are dry. In the next scene, Sophie emerges from a lift/elevator with wet shoulders and neck. See more »

Pegg List Grows As This Movie Does Not Fail To Deliver The Laughs
Pegg has had a few hits in the past few years, starting with "Shaun Of The Dead" in 2004, movie on to "Hot Fuzz 2007", early 2008 he came out with "Run Fat Boy Run" and now comes this, "How To Lose Friends And Alienate People" which is in many ways one of my favourite comedy's of the year.
The film is about Sidney Yound, a man who writes a failing magazine who makes fun of celebrity's mostly because he is not one of them. Anyway, one of the most successful magazine owners (Played By Jeff Bridges) invites him (Out of nostalgia) to work at his magazine. Sidney is of course excited and moves to America, there he meets a girl currently writing a book, and hilarity ensues.
This film is great and I hope more come out like it in the near future. Pegg has once again given people everywhere another good film and I cant wait to the see the third part of the blood and ice cream trilogy "Paul". I Rate this film 81%.
