How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

After watching How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, my penchant for Simon Pegg was reawakened. I’ve seen him before as secondary characters of long-ago films (except for the most recent film he made, the Star Trek, where he played Scotty – which was my favorite character!) so I was inspired to dig up and look for his previous films. But more of that in the coming posts.
This movie was ridiculously funny it had me giggling uncontrollably even if I look like a total buffoon for doing that alone. I didn’t know that Megan Fox was here and so is Kirsten Dunst (as her leading lady). Still, it was nice overall. I love Simon Pegg’s accent for a Londoner and I love the way he crumples his face for more comedy effect. In fact, I saw a consistent sample of Pegg’s funny faces and grunts on most of his films that I can immediately identify where I’ve seen and heard it.

I also saw some short cameos of other British stars in this film such as Maurice Moss, Katherine Parkinson (both from The IT Crowd), Daniel Craig and Thandie Newton!

I’m not a freak, I’m just really observant.
