Satisfyingly entertaining.

Nothing to be embarrassed about here. Though the kick-in-the-balls scene does run on a bit.
September 24, 2008
The film, like its flabby aspiring marathon runner protagonist, feels shapeless and exhausted from the sheer effort of trying to please audiences.
September 23, 2008
The picture manages to juggle both the silly and the sentimental without falling flat.

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

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.

It's a good formalic romantic comedy. Nothing more.

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 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.

Warm/funny film about a man trying to re-win his true love by running a race

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...

April 2, 2008
A fry-up of American, British and Irish comedy sensibilities that will have no trouble satisfying mainstream movie appetites.
April 2, 2008
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.

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.

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