      I loved The Devil Wears Prada film largely because Meryl Streep was such a bitch. The good news is How To Lose Friends And Alienate People is written in the same vein only the main character is not Anne Hathaway but a smart talking clumsy writer (Sydney Young) played by Simon Pegg.

      Simon works for a magazine that pokes


      fun at celebrities.

      When Sydney is offered a new job at Sharps, a magazine that celebrates Hollywood and its movie stars Sydney finds himself in some hilarious interviews that go terribly wrong.

      Like The Devil Wears Prada Sydney discovers that the Hollywood machine is serious business and his immediate superiors are quick to tear him to shreds at every ...


      • chance they get.

        Gillian Anderson plays the super-publicist who helps to make or break movie stars and the really scaring thing about her role is that it is believable.

        Sydney’s only ally is Kirsten Dunst who plays Alison Olsen.

        The whole film sends up the movie industry but like The Devil Wears Prada it also enlightens us mere mortals

        about how the Media can manipulate what we see and what we believe about the stars.

        I enjoyed How To Lose Friends And Alienate People.

        I laughed through most of it and it was every bit as entertaining as The Devil Wears Prada.

        I strongly recommend it if you are yearning for some light hearted fun at the movies.
