Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) is joined by an all-star cast including Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man trilogy), Jeff Bridges (Iron Man), Gillian Anderson (The Last King of Scotland) and Megan Fox (Transformers) in the film adaption of Toby Young's international best-selling novel, HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS & ALIENATE PEOPLE.

Directed by Oscar nominee Robert Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm), HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS & ALIENATE PEOPLE chronicles Sidney Young's (Pegg) descent from promising journalist to dismal failure at Sharps, New York's most prestigious magazine.

Sidney is convinced fame, success and beautiful girls will fall at his feet, the reality being that women cross the room to avoid him, he is an embarrassment to his colleagues and every publicist's worst nightmare. As he begins to doubt if he can make it in America, Sidney realises he needs to clean up his act in order to get the girl, the gorgeous starlet Sophie Maes (Megan Fox).

Award winning Pegg is on form as the blunt and downright irritating Sidney Young whose antics, bad manners and vulgar pranks lead to monumental mishaps with hilarious consequences.
