Simon Pegg/Kirsten Dunst/Jeff Bridges/Megan Fox comedy opening in October.

I want to look forward to this one, I really do. I don't want to see a bad Simon Pegg comedy, it's not fun to see funny people in unfunny movies. It's like when Matthew Perry from Friends did a string of comedies at the turn of the century, never quite living up to his potential with material that was beneath him. The folks behind his new comedy How To Lose Friends & Alienate People have sent over the new U.S. one-sheet for the upcoming movie whose imagery I can't quite understand. Are they trying to convey over the message that Pegg is an idiot and buffoon who does stupid things whilst spilling drink over hot actress Megan Fox with Kirsten Dunst looking over his shoulder at the mess?

And is "the most hilarious comedy of the year" not the most bland tagline you have ever heard in your life?

The previously released posters for the film are just as lame...


The movie opens October 3rd 2008 in the U.K. and U.S. from Curb Your Enthusiasim director Robert B. Weide and based on the memoirs of Brit journalist Toby Young.
