Synopsis:
Five years ago Dennis was at the altar about to marry Libby, his pregnant fiance. He got cold feet and run for the hills and he’s been going in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers Libby’s hooked up with high-flying-go-getter Whit, he realises it’s now or never. He enters a marathon to show he’s more than a quitter, but then finds out just how much sweat, strain and tears it takes to change. Nobody gives him a chance but Dennis knows this is his only hope to be more than a running joke.

Run, fat boy, run - Run, Fat Boy, Run review by Clare Atkins

Spoiler Alert
08/05/2008

Simon Pegg's titular character is hardly obese, merely a little portly around the midriff. With superb one liners holds this little predictable but amusing film together.

Five years on from a wedding-day panic that saw him leaving pregnant Thandie Newton at the altar, he’s now working as a lowly security guard. The arrival of smoth financier Hank Azaria in her life gives him cause to get fit and win her back, by taking on a challenge of running head-to-head with Hank in London’s latest marathon. It does seem an unlikely route to redemption, given that the Hank is a marathon regular.

Asian landlord Harish Patel filling in the gaps, and bonding opportunities with his son i suppose intended as emotional undertow.

As I say quite predictable but an amusing and good all rounder well worth a watch

Cringingly Funny - Run, Fat Boy, Run review by Rubber Ducky

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2008

A very funny film, but cringingly so in places as Simon Pegg's character Dennis is so immature. He manages to lose his beautiful girlfriend to a hot shot American, then sets about winning her, and his son, back by running a marathon. Quite charming and sweet. Dylan Moran, as his best friend, packs in a few laughs, as do his Asian neighbours.

Good English Comedy - Run, Fat Boy, Run review by Kazzie

Spoiler Alert
18/08/2008

I really enjoyed this film and would compare the humour to Hot Fuzz (although not as "silly" - at the end) - Simon Pegg is a great English comedy actor and it shows in this movie.

Simon Pegg plays Dennis who is lazy and arrogant until he realises what he has lost (his pregnant Fiancée - after chickening out on his wedding). However when she gets with a new man - a "perfect" American hunk - he tries to compete by entering the London marathon - and to prove he can actually finish something.

I don't know why but the plot reminds me a little of Mrs Doubtfire - probably because of the child element and the "perfect man" to compete with to win back his ex.

Honestly - if you like Hot Fuzz, or fancy a comedy, rent this film - it is a great watch and will have you laughing xxx
