Warm/funny film about a man trying to re-win his true love by running a race
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 4, 2008
Certainly not the worst movie of the year, not in a year that brought us Over Her Dead Body, One Missed Call, Fool's Gold, Snow Angels and Mad Money. It could be the most mediocre though.
April 4, 2008
Predictable and clichéd as Run Fatboy Run is, it is an entertaining romedy that, unfortunately, doesn't have much staying power after credits roll.

...a bit rude and uncouth, but sweetly affecting...

Simon Pegg gives it the old college try, but his character isn't worthy our cheers. Maybe Pegg should resurrect his most famous character, the resourceful, much funnier Shaun, and do battle with the zombies of London rather than the marathon runners of Lo

A fine work of craftspeople both in front of the camera and behind...whose chief mistake is that every one of them appears to have forgotten that it was in fact a comedy.

A fry-up of American, British and Irish comedy sensibilities that will have no trouble satisfying mainstream movie appetites.

Neither original nor packed with surprises. It is, however, entertaining and thoroughly likable.

Simon Pegg has a great face! Not since Jerry Lewis has anyone been able to look pathetic, adorable and stupid, all at the same time.

Give me this type of writing any day over some of the inane scripts that plague a Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler flick. Simon Pegg can hold his own with any comic working today.

Schwimmer's sliced cheese mediocrity gets him off the hook; not so for the usually inventive Pegg and Black and their arms race of bland jokes and cheap male nudity

When all is said and done, you're better off renting the Friends Season Four finale...That was brilliant. This is like a bad Farrelly Brothers movie.

The jokes land softly, but Run Fatboy Run moves at a sitcom-like clip that keeps it watchable even when it isn't especially funny.

Sure it's predictable. Sure it's a slight effort, but I still think it's pretty funny and charming.

Overcomes its occasional stumbles, thanks almost entirely to the charm of its cast...

March 30, 2008
Seldom laugh-out-loud funny and the script doesn't have the witty insight of Pegg's last few films, but Pegg's bumbling charm is just enough to make this movie run.

March 30, 2008
Pacing is brisk, the laughs frequent. With an ending corny and Capra-esque, 'Run, Fat Boy, Run' charms right to the finish line.

It's clear in the scene where they try to scam the marathon officials that Dylan Moran would be a good candidate to play the grown Harry Potter in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film. Somebody take note!

Simon Pegg is a wonderful physical comedian. And he's able to take off with his talent in "Run Fatboy Run," a comedy that's not up to par of his other starring roles but one that nonetheless provides quite a few laughs.

While some moments rely solely on Pegg's natural on-screen goofiness, he & M. I. Black have simply written a very funny script that spreads the fun evenly throughout.
