Smart aleck British writer Sydney Young (Pegg) struggles to fit in at his new job in a high-profile New York magazine. Constantly irritating his boss Lawrence (Huston) and eventually blowing a connection with one of Hollywood's most powerful publicists Eleanor Johnson (Anderson), Sydney can't go ten minutes without ruining someone's day. Unfortunately, Johnson represents Sophie Maes (Fox), an up-and-coming starlet who also happens to be the object of Sydney's lustful affection, leaving co-worker Alison (Dunst), who's in love with their boss, as his only hope in the Big Apple. Pegg is great, as usual, but miscast as a romantic lead, again. Funny in places, but the movie suffers from tone problems, unable to decide if it wants be a gooey romantic comedy or a vicious satire. Based on the 2001 memoir by Toby Young, who briefly worked for "Vanity Fair."
