How To Lose Friends And Alienate People


UK 2008, 121 minutes
Dir. Robert. B. Weide
Genres: Comedy / Romance

Topics: Showbiz.


Aroview: Rom-com following the fate of a bumbling Brit journalist who struggles to fit into the celeb obsessed world of trash mags after scoring a job with a high-profile New York magazine.

A fun outing but not quite as cutting as it could have been, this feels occasionally awkward as it treads the line between slapstick and satire. Regardless, at its heart is a fine performance from Pegg who does the fish-out-of-water thing with accuracy and tremendous heart, his engaging everyman a worthy juxtaposition to the cringe-worthy American showbiz culture the film sets up to - but doesn't quite - destroy.
