really, really, really's almost like a chick flick, and simmon pegg wasn't funny at all..I seriously kept checking my watch, hoping it would end soon..

This was the worst movie I have seen this year. I kept looking at my watch to see when the first chuckle would happen. Fortunately, the movie ended before time did.

I was hoping for more laughs out of this movie. Simon Pegg was a bit out of his element, trying to make his working class brand of British humor fly in an American office settting. Two stars is generous.

This movie was pretty awful! Not funny at all, actually rather annoying. I never saw any previews for this movie but I figured the actors were rather good so I didn't think the movie could be that bad but boy was I wrong. Do not waste your money!!

Gets muddled in slapstick and crude humor. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Feels jumbled and disorganized. It's not altogether unpalatable, but that doesn't present it from being a mess. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
Best in show is the divine Gillian Anderson as a powerful celebrity publicist, editing the image of her clients in much the same way this adaptation tames Young's much pricklier book. Full Review

The New York Times
The crushingly unfunny and slopped-together How to Lose Friends & Alienate People has neither the ambition nor the intelligence to do justice to its source material. Full Review
Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post
The movie based on Young's 2002 memoir is a good bit blunter. One early laugh comes at the expense of a pig urinating on a woman's feet at the BAFTA awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars. And it doesn't get much better, or much smarter, than that. Full Review
