How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

Thursday, August 7 by

It’s kind of like Th Devil Wears Prada, except it’s not for complete idiots. Simon Pegg plays a fictionalized version of real-life writer Toby Young who worked his way up through the magazine ranks, getting into hilarious situations along the way. Having worked in publishing for most of my adult life, I can tell you honestly that the things that happen aren’t so much funny as they are soul-crushing and terrible. But, don’t let my pain prevent you from having a good laugh. With a cast that include Simon Pegg, and Jeff Bridges, there’s a good chance it’ll be funny. Oh, and is has Megan Fox. Just sayin’.
