Starring: Simon Pegg, Megan Fox, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Bridges
A good-for-nothing British journalist, Sydney Young (Pegg) is trying desperately to get into the lives of celebrities and run his own gossip magazine, The Post Modern Review. He ends up making a joke of himself in a post-BAFTA party, posing with a pig whom he claims played the role of Babe. The editor of the internationally renowned Sharps magazine, Clayton Harding (Bridges) is amused by Young's stupidity and decides to recruit him to work with Sharps. He meets Alison (Dunst) who works with him in the same department, who tries very hard to teach him the tricks of the trade. Sophie Maes (Fox) is the new upcoming hot starlet whom Young cant seem to get his eyes off. Just when things seem to be going down for him, his life changes, but is it for the good? The first thing about the movie that would spark your interest to watch it would be the title itself. The second aspect of the movie that is appealing is Simon Pegg and his sense of humour. He managed to put up a good performance, enough to make you laugh now and then but nothing that you would roll over on the floor. A decent comedy to watch and enjoy once without having any serious expectations.
