Run Fatboy Run

Title: Run Fatboy Run

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Simon Pegg, Hank Azaria, Thandie Newton, Dylan Moran

Genre: Comedy

Status: In Theaters

Plot Summary: Dennis (Pegg), an overweight security runs away from his problems. Now, when his ex-fiance is dating a more successful man (Azaria), he decides to run along with him in a marathon to win her back.

Review: This was a funny, yet slightly more mature, comedy from Simon Pegg. He’s a hilarious actor, as his track record shows (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), and this was no exception. Granted, the humor in this one was much more mature, it’s still a great comedy. As much as I love Pegg’s work, his co-star Dylan Moran is quite the scene stealer in this one. They story is kind of a cookie cutter romantic comedy, with the obvious slow parts and cheesy romantic parts, but this one actually has some good comedy. There weren’t tons of laugh-out-loud moments, but there were a few. I must say, David Schwimmer chose a good one to make his full-length directorial debut. Great movie.

Rating: 3.5/5
