Megan Fox In "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" - Review And Movie Trailer

The "Funny" is starting to creep back into the next batch of movies paving the way for the November blockbuster season, and this week ushers in a good one. "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" opens Friday, and will definitely make you laugh.

The film was directed by Robert B. Weide, and stars Simon Pegg, Megan Fox, Jeff Bridges, Kirsten Dunst and Gillian Anderson, and revolves around a British writer who struggles to fit in at a high-profile magazine in New York.

The screenplay was based on Toby Young's memoir "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People".

Sidney Young (Simon Pegg) is a cynical academic type who both loves and hates the world of Hollywood, celebrity, fame and glamour.

His alternative magazine, 'Post Modern Review', jabs fun at the tabloid and media obsessed celebrities and goes against the traditional grain. When Young is offered a job at the completely opposite conservative New York based 'Sharps' magazine, its somewhat of a shock to his system.

It seems Sharps editor, Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges), is amused by Young's disturbance at a post awards party with a pig posing as a celebrity. The stunt starts Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from contemptuous Hollywood outsider to confidante of super-star celebrity Sophie Maes (Megan Fox) - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen (Kirsten Dunst), which will either make him or break him.

Brace yourselves, it is a funny movie, and may spark a new career for funnyman Simon Pegg. It seems Pegg wants to swap his acting for music after he played the drums during a party for the premiere of the film. Following the star-studded London premiere of the movie on Wednesday, British band Guillemots performed at the after party held at Shoreditch House.

Pegg grabbed the drumsticks and banged out some songs with the "Get Over It" hit makers - and fell in love with the instrument. Pegg says, "I think I might kill the drummer and take his job full-time."
