How To Lose Friends & Alienate People...

Indeed, I'm quite late in blogging up these thoughts, but what do you expect from of a 2-out-of-5 movie? Yep, Total Film had it pegged right (pun not intended)...there's a couple of giggles but that's your lot. You don't give a bollocks about any of the characters, Pegg's protagonist is essentially an unlikeable tosser until the end (by which time it's too little too late) - and then support wise, there's not much to chew on either from a series of dull or phoned in performances from those surrounding Pegg's character.

The vapid and soul-sapping world of a high-profile magazine that sucks up to pretentious MTV-suckled 'filmmakers' turns you off immediately and keeps you switched off throughout and well ... that's about it really ... it's a bit of a chore to sit through, barely raises a mere giggle from start to finish and is generally just a disappointment considering the potential it could have had.
