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
Part of the films marketing involves a spoof trailer for an erotic Mother Teresa biopic, in which Megan Fox's character Sophie Maes appears as the young and passionate Teresa. See more »
In the opening crane-down shot at the open air party (about half way through the movie) you can see a tiny "hair in the gate" at the bottom-center of the screen. It is still there in the subsequent shot, but has obviously been removed in time for the next one. See more »

Look at that. All night long, people have been treating us like royalty. In London, the journalist's motto is, "Everybody hates us, and we don't care."

Amazing performance from Simon Pegg who just gets better and better with every role. As usual he plays the part of a very cringy character who makes you want to hide behind your cushion in embarrassment for him sometimes, but thats what Pegg is all about.
The laughs were regular and eye watering and everyone of them aimed at Penn. The movie was very cleverly put together where every character plays a very sophisticated and serious part with Penn being the only humour involved which is a huge credit to the Director Robert Weide.
And I cant let this one go without a quick round of applause to Gilliam Anderson who shone throughout. Highly recommended to all.
