Movie Info

Five years earlier, nervous bridegroom Dennis (Simon Pegg) leaves his pregnant girlfriend, Libby (Thandie Newton), at the altar. Now he realizes he made a big mistake and wants to win her back. Unfortunately, Libby is involved with a handsome, attentive and fit financier (Hank Azaria), who plans to run in a charity marathon. Out-of-shape Dennis enters the race -- hoping to impress Libby -- even though he only has three weeks to prepare.

Audience Reviews for Run Fat Boy Run

  • Jan 16, 2016
    nice story of the strength of the human spirit. Pegg is one of those losers that doesn't commit to anything and fails at life. Then enters the dreaded new boyfriend who is everything he isn't and he must prove himself to everybody that he is much more. Sometimes a little conventional in the silly humour but there is a great story here and the film works well.

    Not the kind of film with a great plot but it's charming and actually funny. I loved the "tree frog" scene.

    The characters are likeable and well-developed and the plot manages to move through comedy and drama with wonderful finesse.
