HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS & ALIENATE PEOPLE (2008) Graphic Review

  • By John Robert
  • 03 Oct, 2008

SYNOPSIS:
In this funny fish-out-of-water tale, "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People" tracks the outrageous escapades of Sidney Young (Simon Pegg), a smalltime, bumbling, British celebrity journalist who is hired by an upscale magazine in New York City. In spectacular fashion Sidney enters high society and burns bridges with bosses, peers and superstars.

REVIEW:
This film reminds us to laugh and view life in a lighter way. The film turns tragic situations into comedic moments. This is also a great way to approach life. Regretfully, most of us view life as a tragedy (negative) instead of as a comedy (positive).

Comedian Lewis Black is correct when he says, “There's no measure to the value of comedy-- it's sanity maintenance, it's what keeps people on their toes, it's what provides humility, it's the insulation -- not only does it open us but it insulates us from everything.”

The producers of this film join with God in establishing a new commandment: “Thou Shalt Laugh!”
