I saw this movie because I love Simon Pegg's films. If you are a fan of "Shaun of the Dead" or "Hot Fuzz," I promise that you will not be let down. I thought the film looked cute enough, but was uncertain if it would be as good as the others. It was very funny! I was surprised that it was "a feel-good movie" too because that phrase normally makes me roll my eyes (I hate pointless tearjerkers,) but this movie was heartfelt without being hokey or lame. You have to see it!

I got to see a sneak preview of this movie, and I must say it was great! The cast was wonderful, and the laughs were extremley entertaining. I loved the scene with the blister. That was amazingly hilarious. I know that Nick Frost and Edgar Wright had nothing to do with this, but I couldn't have done better. Once this is a wide release, you must see it! Run Fatboy Run is a marvelous film and is also inspiring as well as funny. Simon Pegg is a genius!

I JUST SAW THE FREE PRESS PREVIEW. AND THIS IS ONE MOVIE DEFINITELY WORTH WATCHING.
TO BE HONEST, I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT - BUT I FOUND THAT ONE SHOULD NOT BE TOO QUICK TO JUDGE A MOVIE'S TITLE (SOMETIMES). I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED AND THRILLED BY HOW ENTERTAINING THIS MOVIE TURNED OUT - ESPECIALLY SINCE IT IS A FIRST-TIME DIRECTING EFFORT BY DAVID SCHWIMMER (FRIENDS).
IT IS A APPEALING (ACROSS ALL DEMOGRAPHICS) UP-LIFTING CHARMING AND UNPRETENTIOUS DOWN-TO-EARTH (AND FUNNY!!!! - BRITISH-HUMOR) COMEDY ABOUT A RUNAWAY GROOM WHO LATER TRIES TO WIN BACK HIS WOMAN, AND KID - AND IN THE PROCESS DISCOVERS HIMSELF - CONFRONTING HIS DEMONS AND FINDING HIS INNER STRENGTHS.
THIS MOVIE WILL HAVE YOU ROOTING FOR THE UNDERDOG ALL THE WAY!
KUDOS TO THE GREAT CAST! AND ESPECIALLY TO THE HIGHLY-COMMENDABLE SUPPORTING PLAYERS!
ASSUMING YOU HAVE TO PAY, THIS MOVIE IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION.
GO SEE IT WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER - AND HAVE A BLAST TOGETHER!

An out of shape security guard decides to run in a marathon to prove to a number of people, including his ex-girlfriend, her boyfriend, his son, etc. that he has changed and can finish something he started. It's pretty funny when he's in training and the race itself is exciting. This movie works because the characters are likable and relatable. Kind of a feel good movie.

There's not much to say about this one, being a sort of comedy/romatic-comedy. Can't really talk about FX, or action, but it had a lot of great moments in it. Very funny, and worth seeing. You'll probably even like it as much as your girlfriend for this type of movie...
