Summary "Simon Pegg ... starts as Sidney Young, a gate-crashing British journalist who loves exposing the shallowness of the celebrity world, yet desperately wants to join it. When he accepts an offer from renowned editor Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges) to write for an ultra-chic magazine in Manhattan, Sidney finally gets to rub elbows with A-list celebrities-- but always manages to rub them in the wrong way. His fellow writer, Alison Olsen (Kirsten Dunst), is powerless to stop Sidney when he sets his lustful sites on beautiful starlet Sophie Maes (Megan Fox). But when Sophie's publicist (Gillian Anderson) makes him a tempting offer, Sidney is finally poised to conquer the Big Apple-- or suffer the biggest humiliation of his life"--Container.
