I think Simon Pegg is probably better served as a comedic actor in his native British movies, he's proven himself in that field time and time again, but when it comes to things like How to Lose Friends & Alienate People he is never given the opportunity to shine, and it's the lacklustre, derivative movies themselves (like this one) that are to blame.
Also, he starts this movie already alienated and he doesn't have any friends, so the title is like???
Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product.
Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian 21 or older. The parent/guardian is required to stay with the child under 17 through the entire movie, even if the parent gives the child/teenager permission to see the film alone. These films may contain strong profanity, graphic sexuality, nudity, strong violence, horror, gore, and strong drug use. A movie rated R for profanity often has more severe or frequent language than the PG-13 rating would permit. An R-rated movie may have more blood, gore, drug use, nudity, or graphic sexuality than a PG-13 movie would admit.
