"How to Lose Friends and Alienate People"

We went to see this film yesterday.

The film kicks off by thanking the UK Film Council, Film Four and the National Lottery Fund - my heart sank as I thought we might be in for another In Bruges-style festival of taxpayer funded mediocrity (it was full of product placement for a certain brand of computers as well, AIH), but it was quite good fun actually, even though it doesn't have any sort of plot or narrative arc above and beyond what you'd expect from reading the reviews.

The trailers for the film-within-a-film, i.e. Megan Fox playing Mother Theresa, were moments of sheer unbridled buttock clenching genius. Here's the poster:


In case you don't get the joke, here's a typical Megan Fox publicity photo:

If you wanted to post a picture of Megan Fox half naked (I've never heard of her, so I should be well on my way to becoming a High Court judge) you didn't have to pretend to have seen some film.....
