Where the movie succeeds is in its sudden right turns, its willingness to kill a dog, always a bold choice, and its consistent emphasis of the comedy over the romance.

Just because you are supposed to laugh doesn't mean you are going to laugh.

Weide bypasses the impulse to push the film at the usual breakneck comedy movie pace, allowing the conflicts to build slowly and with more thought than the film's premise might otherwise suggest.

It plays like a made-for-CBS redo of The Devil Wears Prada.

What was good enough for the printed page -- a comic chronicle of our obsession with the shallow -- has been turned into the object of its own derision.

Instead of skewering self-important stars and vapid journalists, Friends gets muddled in slapstick and crude humor.

This is a fun movie but... it yaps around the ankles of its subject without ever moving in for a decent-sized, satisfying bite.

A scandal sheet satire that wears its antisocial tendencies on its sleeve, the movie takes aim at the inane gossip rag media world. But more often than not avoids punishment to fit the tabloid grime, that calls for more caustic rather than giddy strokes.

Pegg is one of those actors about whom I can say things like, 'He's so funny, I would listen to him reading from the phone book,' and mean it.

There are two full-length commentaries: an informative solo one by director Robert Weide and a higher energy, conversational and funny one by Weide and star Simon Pegg.

The makings of an uncompromising, razor sharp satire were gathered together here. That the resulting movie slips off track as much as it does is particularly disappointing.

A fun movie worth checking out.

... slickly constructed and frequently funny.

I'm told that several of these characters are easily recognisable to insiders, but outside that small coterie there's still a great deal to enjoy about Sidney's fish-out-of-water exploits.

I feel I've seen a bit too much of Pegg in some not very funny films recently, but his fish out of water works well.

No bad thing, really, but a fair distance from the barbed humour of Young's book.
