How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
Here's a comedy that looks like it might be worth the price of admission and an extra large bucket of popcorn with butter. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is based on the book by Toby Young and stars Simon Pegg who you might know from Hot Fuzz.
The official synopsis reads:
In this hilariously funny fish-out-of-water tale, "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" tracks the outrageous escapades of Sidney Young (Simon Pegg), a smalltime, bumbling, British celebrity journalist who is hired by an upscale magazine in New York City. In spectacular fashion Sidney enters high society and burns bridges with bosses, peers and superstars.

If you rather read the book, here's the amazon link.
Books are almost always better than films because there is more detail, more action, and character descriptions. A screenwriter cannot possibly include everything in the movie version. But some people don't like to read- I can't even imagine that- and will see the movie rather than read the book. Either way, books being turned into movies are really big right now and I hope to feature as many as I possibly can.
