How to Lose Friends & Alienate People

Simon Pegg has a very particular style of humour, quite dry and very British. His previous successful movie was called Shaun of the Dead and was a spoof of the George Romero's Zombie movies. This time he takes on "The Devil wears Prada" and manages to produce an entertaining movie that falls a bit short of expectations.
Some of the scenes are incredible funny, but others miss timing and stamina. Anyway, fans of British humour will have a good time, others might be a bit bored.

Sidney Young is a disillusioned intellectual who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamour. 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 its 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 - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen, that will either make him or break him
