Movie Info

An overweight man leaves his fiancée on their wedding day, only to realize years later that she's the one and only woman of his dreams in a romantic comedy that reunites Big Nothing co-stars Simon Pegg and David Schwimmer, this time with Schimmer in the director's chair. It's not easy to win back a woman after leaving her at the altar, but when an out-of-shape man finally realizes just what a mistake he's made, he vows to run a high-profile marathon in order to convince his ex-fiancée that the rich and handsome man she's about to marry isn't the guy for her.

Audience Reviews for Run Fatboy Run

    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.
