Love. Commitment. Responsibility. There's nothing he can't run away from.


Run, Fatboy, Run
Five years ago, a man chickened out of marrying his pregnant girlfriend. He still sees her and their kid, and realises that he still loves her. Trouble is that she is dating an overachiever. Desperate to win her back, our hero challenges the new boyfriend to a marathon race. Problem is that he is way out of shape, and 26 miles is a lot further than he thought...

Stella Papamichael quote iconThankfully the film isn't just a series of crude innuendos and gross-out gags.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconWhen you assemble some of Britain’s funniest actors with Michael Ian Black as screenwriter (co-writing with star Simon Pegg) and David Schwimmer as director, comedy gold should be in the offing, right? So how’d they cock this up?

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconFor those who enjoy their character arcs and happy endings served up with a minimum of drama or humor, Run Fatboy Run becomes the latest entry into a genre that's burgeoning at an alarming rate.
