How To Lose Friends And Alienate People

3

Simon Pegg's scathing Brit tries to make his way in the US

Spaced’s Simon Pegg. Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Robert Weide. Both star and director of How To Lose Friends have made cult, cutting edge comedies, so why is this collab so toothless?

Playing a cynical Brit journo recruited by a glossy NY mag, Pegg looks uncomfortable as he gurns through a Devil Wears Prada-lite tale that – despite indie credentials – is frustratingly generic. Ample extras.
