Satisfyingly entertaining.

About as funny as Ross on "Friends." David Schwimmer (Ross on "Friends") directs.

Nothing to be embarrassed about here. Though the kick-in-the-balls scene does run on a bit.

Far from the gut-busting brilliance of Pegg's other, self-made starring vehicles.

This feeble premise limits the movie to perfunctory gags about the hero's sloth and some canned underdog drama.

The film, like its flabby aspiring marathon runner protagonist, feels shapeless and exhausted from the sheer effort of trying to please audiences.

The picture manages to juggle both the silly and the sentimental without falling flat.

...cuter and sweeter than I expected, a mildly pleasant surprise.

Schwimmer completely lacks what it takes to ever get this movie off the ground. The story is fairly formula and the actors are basically on mark, yet the jokes (most of which are so predictable they are telegraphed a mile in advance) land with a virtually

It's a Generation X movie in a way very few movies are any more; it is unseemly to admit that our generation is about as slackery as we had promised to become. Go with your ex and smile.

Schwimmer offers generic rom-com conventions in his feature directorial debut.

[The protagonist is] a petty, unlikable loser.

(Run, Fat Boy, Run) is your nice, fun, romantic film that is not necessarily worth spending your money to see in theatres.

Em sua estréia na direção, Schwimmer atira para todos os lados: comédia física, escatologia, estereótipos, besteirol, e por aí afora, falhando consistentemente todas as vezes. E Pegg jamais esteve tão artificial, o que é uma surpresa desagradável.

Run, Fatboy, Run winds up being as immature and exhausting as its protagonist.

Run Fatboy Run n'offre rien pour révolutionner le genre, mais présente assez de bonnes intentions pour justifier son existence, et nous faire passer un bon moment

It's a lazy effort that offers little encouragement for the future of Schwimmer's directorial career.

It is neither as funny nor as wickedly subversive as 'Shaun of the Dead,' but it respects its characters enough to make them thoughtful and surprisingly complex, unlike the sitcom stereotypes inhabiting lesser romantic comedies.
