How to Lose Friends & Alienate People

Sidney young is disillusioned intellectual beggar. He deeply despises the world of chic and glamorous, because she knows that will never be part of it, and wealth is not threatened. His alternative magazine "World without showing off" makes fun of snobby stars who are obsessed with self-importance. And now for a bit of fun on this crank, publisher of the coolest glossy magazine "Glamour" offers Sydney an armchair of the journalist Department of the sensations. Everyone froze in joyful anticipation of the great jokes. But to the surprise of the local snobs, Sydney agrees to the proposal, and his bizarre antics bring him fame and success...

After all, how it is important to watch movies in a proper mood! It happens that  & good film, as they say, "don't go" — not the attitude.

The Comedy, I was lucky. Sat down to watch something just to laugh, without the desire to find the mistakes, cliches, nonsense and absurdities. Due to this, have fun... of Course, this mindless approach to any honor of the film does not make — the viewer behaves just like the consumer film and other fast food, and understand, bad or good, not just because not included assessing the internal degausser.

But even at this short-sighted study shows that most of the film — it's a cliche. And it makes me thinking and why did the popular sitcom all like one built like from different parts of one and the same designer? Obvious answers like "thick cash on the weekend" kind of sick, although they and compelling. But here I think the matter is still in that everyone loves stories. "How to lose friends" — it is also a tale just for their own way. The main character-a fool, through all twists and turns which put the genre, finds the same happiness again in eternal values (love of the good girl, affection to their work is not out of vanity, and due to a heart location, and etc.), pre-hitting of fire in the frying pan, but its not evil sincere nature coming out of problems of a winner. And now tell me, who such stories, in which once again (although in comic form) good triumphs over evil, may not be like? Only cynics. Or those who do not was appropriate for viewing in a condescending mood. First sorry, sorry second, because this happens quite often. We can only wish to get started any film, the viewer did not behave as a consumer, and approached every movie with but without a willingness to condemnation.

Before watching, I thought the film is the most that neither is usual where have fun of the drop, but not then it.

The cast is pleased with me, but how Gillian Anderson could get into a movie where the laughter above all else, I did not understand could. Simon Pegg, a stranger to me to this picture, with the first minute I called negative emotions, but it went on after 20 minutes of the film. The presence of Kirsten dunst fueled interest in their more.

That's a good start, but I saw the blooper 35 minutes after the main characters left parties the wall suddenly appeared... the shadow of the camera filming! Was surprised. The plot is twisted, became more interesting, Yes, it was possible to predict how the film will end, but for some reason, I had a feeling that anything so, something happens... Then tell not will, if anyone was still haven't seen the movie.

The picture is not a masterpiece, although he could be pretty good. Very good game Kirsten dunst, somewhere was able to play most likely, somewhere not very. Simon Pegg played gorgeous as many of them Gillian Anderson.

If there was no vulgarity, mistakes, be changed, for my opinion, wrong movie title, it would all 10, but unfortunately, only 7.

"How to lose friends and to force all you to hate" for me was quite unusual movie, I expect to see a typical movie with instead of the vulgarity of the jokes and antics instead of expressions, partly expectations have been met, but to a greater extent the film does a satire, if there is such a genre, and if a movie can be so to characterize.

General "How to lose friends and..." more like a vinaigrette or in comparison with film movie "con Air" in it is a little bit for everyone: a Comedy of situations for lovers to laugh, love of the protagonist for romantic natures, vulgar humor for those whom he like a also a satirical look at Bohemian life for people who like movies with meaning.

Briefly about the plot, it displays an independent journalist who covers the life of the show business as she , without Shine full of corruption. But here he offer the robot in a known gloss. And here or select to lose their principles and become as those who is he wrote (without honor and conscience, but rich and popular) or continue to be, probably country and known only to a narrow circle of people, identity, and no dog in running for someone.

The actors in the film look great, perhaps only Simon Pegg in places need some experience looks not so convincingly, as where he portrays a jerk.

Therefore, I advise all to watch a movie — someone will laugh, someone will empathize with the main character, someone will find over time and some nice podimaet.
