HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS & ALIENATE PEOPLE (Robert B. Weide) See Movies. Rating: N
Simon Pegg follows Run, Fatboy, Run with another underwhelming comedy.
This one's a blunted, broadened adaptation of Toby Young's memoir of sleazing around the New York magazine scene, which casts Pegg as "Sidney" Young, a London yellow journalist imported to Manhattan by his personal hero (Jeff Bridges).
Immediately lost in a sea of backstabbing office politics and empty flattery, Sidney falls into an oil-and-water relationship with a colleague (Kirsten Dunst) while drooling over a rising starlet (Megan Fox).
It's The Devil Wears Prada with less fashion and more vomiting. Not really an improvement.
