How to Loose friends and Alienate People

I quite like Simon Pegg. I have some fond memories of watching Spaced with a friend of mine in the early hours of the morning following a night out at a club. I've never really been a fanatic though. I haven't watch Shawn of the Dead all the way through yet and I only watched Hot Fuzz recently.

It could probably be argued that I don't have a lot to learn from How to Loose Friends and Alienate People, but Charlotte was keen to go and we both enjoyed it. It was dire in places, but for the most part it was very good. The film exposes the vast cultural difference between the US and the UK in a very funny way and Kirsten Dunst always captures my heart in that classic girl next door way (my wife always says that I married the girl next door, even though it was more like the girl one hundred yards up the road, turn left and then fifty yards on the right). With a soppy ending seeing Pegg get the girl he really wants and the dry humour there's something for everyone, even a sci-fi reference or two.
