How to Lose Friends & Alienate People – Review

I was at a screening of How to Lose Friends & Alienate People last week, because I’m just that special. Good movie, bad title… The cast was the temptation of seeing the movie for me, Sidney Young, Kirsten Dunst, Megan Fox, Gillian Anderson, Megan Fox, Jeff Bridges, Denis Quaid, and Megan Fox. Basically, Simon Pegg’s character (Sidney Young) runs a magazine in the UK, where he starts controversy for a laugh. He receives a call from Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges) asking him to come work for his magazine. The magazine is more or less a celebrity ass-kissing-fest. He meets his coworker Alison Olsen (Kirsten Dunst) and although they are off to a rocky start, there is chemistry. He is determined to “shake things up” as he says, of course he finds trouble along the way. Eventually he meets Sophie Maes (Megan Fox) who is the hot bombshell bimbo that he quickly falls for. I won’t spoil anything, but the story becomes him choosing the path of which he either sells out, or lives by the beat of his own drum. The picture is slated to come out October 3rd of 2008. I would recommend it to just about everyone, except small children. Hopefully, by the time the movie is released, the title will be different though, because…damn. The story is based on a true story, memoirs of Tody Young. Perhaps something was lost in the conversion of memoir to movie. Either way, if you have nothing to do in October, go see it. Megan Fox is in it and she’s hot.
