Sidney Young (Simon Pegg) is a disillusioned person who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame, glitz and the glamour. His magazine, Post Modern Review, pokes fun at the media-obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York-based Sharps magazine its something of a shock! It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding (Jeff Bridges) is amused by Young's disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from derided outsider to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes (Megan Fox) - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen (Kirsten Dunst) that will either make him or break him.
