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.
