Apparently the only line in it that's his is the "I've got cock on my hand" bit. The screening I saw had a Q&A with Toby Young and the director, they were both pleased that Simon liked the script enough to not want to change/rewrite it.

Really!? Like Flame7581 I'm surprised. Surely the "Jesus!" line is Mr Peggs? I can just picture him suggesting doing that on the day as they were filming that scene. I only feel so sure coz I would swear he's done that kind of gag before. In Spaced even. It really rings a bell. It's kinda similar to the "You mothers!" line in HF.

I have since found out the writer did have Simon Pegg in mind when writing the script which goes someway to explaining why it fits him like a glove.

I finally watched it today and I thought it was pretty good. A very likeable and above average romcom with some good little observations and lines. The plot carried you along nicely, Sydney was such an odd an unpredictable character that it wasn't too obvious what was going to happen next, and there was a good balance between different types of humour and plenty of decent performances. Apart from the Pegg, I thought Bridges, Anderson and Dunst were all very good too, and I enjoyed all the film references. Entertaining and amusing. 7.5/10

This film was pretty awful, I thought. Definitely not interested in seeing it again.

I didn't think it was awful. Certainly better than your average rom-com... but maybe that's cos Pegg was in it. - The same could be said for Run Fatboy Run.


I've no interest is seeing it again either.... unless I was on a long flight.

I'll admit to not getting round to seeing it at the cinema having technically already seen it and perhaps feeling I could easily wait for the DVD to see it again.

It's a good film but I will concede that it's not quite up to watching again and again like Shaun or Hot Fuzz.

I did see it on a long flight, it made the flight feel so much longer! He he. To be fair I actually enjoyed Run Fatboy Run a little bit more than this film.
