Run Fatboy Run

Run Fatboy Run has not done very well by the critics, but I have to say, my friends and I found this movie very entertaining. An out of shape loser, thinks he can win the girl by finishing a marathon. He has his supporters and his detractors. There are running gags, potty humor, bare asses and the cute kid to tug your heartstrings. The "message scene" is the only place the film lost me, but it didn't last long. Light, satisfying and funny, I liked this one.

"Run" owes a ton to Simon Pegg, who's enormously likable playing a guy who, on paper, deserves a good kick in the pants.

Toto~I was prepared to hate his character, but the performance won me over. Surprising!
