About the Movie

Sidney Young is a disillusioned intellectual who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamour. His alternative magazine, Post Modern Review, pokes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York based Sharps Magazine its something of a shock! It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young's disruption of a post-Bafta party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from derided outsider to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen, that will either make him or break him.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Instead of skewering self-important stars and vapid journalists, Friends gets muddled in slapstick and crude humor. – Scott Bowles, USA Today, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: Like the characters it portrays, How to Lose Friends eventually becomes the very thing it mocks, its delectable naughtiness sacrificed to sentiment and audience appeal. – Mary Elizabeth Williams,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It plays like a made-for-CBS redo of The Devil Wears Prada. – Robert Wilonsky, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A sharp-witted satire of celebrity journalism and has much to recommend it once you get past its unwieldy title, which sounds like something that would get slapped on a self-help book. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

Cool movie


The movie strikes the perfect balance between reality and humor. Unlike so many comedies today, the humor is real and true, not some fabricated misadventure where discomfort and shockvalue provoke laughs. If you liked Run Fatboy Run, you'll like this. Highly reccomended.


Megan Fox is such a cute, and talented actor in this movie(: We need more movies by her
