Trying to clear off my DVR, I saw that I had this one there and realized it's one of those movies I've always wanted to watch, but just didn't. So, I finally gave it a shot, and man I wish I would have watched this a few years ago. I love Simon Pegg movies, he is the best geeky...

It´s not so bad as I imagined. Let says it works. It has a mix of British and American humour (American "humour") , shows very well Hollywood´s little world and makes lot of references to the great Fellini´s "La Dolce Vita", the best film about the "celebrity journalism" from whe...

Kirsten Dunst is the only bright spot in this mess (and even she is not at her best). . Now I know why it took me years to get around to watching it.
Stupid storyline and bad acting. And Megan Fox. Ack!

A male vision of The Devil Wears Prada; How to Lose Friends & Alienate People could be not so good made as Frankel's picture, doesn't have a better writing as the same and be very slapstick. But this one had, not just a nice performance by Simon Pegg, it's much more entertaining ...

All of the cast perform very well and althought it doesn't keep it's promise it's still a fun light hearted movie with a witty script mixed with relaxed humour that's not too over the edge. Doesn't feel much like a Pegg movie to be honest.

I'm not sure I understand why this film gets no love. Simon Pegg took the gig, sure, but this isn't one of his own, so it shouldn't be held to the same standard. I thought it was really funny - lots of slapstick, fish-out-of-water stuff, and critical enough of the socially mobile...

My predicted rating: 3.5
Simon Pegg always manages to bring something new to the table where the storylines are concerned and his unique humour never tires. The great thing about Pegg is that he manages to star in Rom Coms which do not fit the Rom Com mould and appeals to the ...

A decent comedy that I didn't think I would enjoy to be honest. I'm not a big Pegg fan Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz aside. This does have a very strong cast line up that surprised me, especially Megan Fox and Kirsten Dunst fill their roles well. It has quite a few laugh out lo...

The only reason I saw this was because of Simon Pegg (and Megan Fox). Let me say, it's not as bad as critics say. It's funny, great actors, Jeff Bridges is in it for some reason... anyways, if you are in the mood for a mean spirited comedy, go 'Alienate' yourself by watching this...

It was forgetable. Average.
