The film jogs along uncertain whether it is aiming to be an episode of Friends or a Farrelly brothers farce. Overrun with fart jokes, it is fitfully funny and hamstrung by a sentimental and implausible plot.

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

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

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

One thing Schwimmer does do right is keep the story moving swiftly. You're in, you're out, no harm done -- unless you want that hour and a half back.

An enjoyable, even heartwarming little movie that embraces its clichés and never lets them get in the way

Much of the comedy left me cold.

Disappointingly, Run, Fat Boy, Run is an unsatisfying hybrid not funny enough to be a true comedy, and not serious enough for a drama.

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.

There are any number of good laughs in the film, and I found myself smiling quite a bit. (Blu-ray Edition)

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.
