Movie review


I’m at home today and I just finished watching a movie that I missed first time around in 2007 (and second time around I guess when the DVD was released) Run Fat Boy Run.

It stars Simon Pegg, Thandie Newton and Hank Azaria. I am a big fan of Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, 2004 and Hot Fuzz, 2007). He plays the down on his luck, smoking, boozing, Londoner Dennis who’s in love with Libby (Newton). Libby’s in love with the successful handsome American, Whit (Azaria). Whit runs marathons and there’s one coming up that he’s running for charity. Dennis challenges Whit and subsequently has to prepare his fat, out of shape body to run a marathon in less than a month.

Run Fat Boy Run was directed by David Schwimmer. The two had worked together previously in Band of Brothers. Stars

Loved it. Hilarious.  Made me forget the horrible last 24 hours for a while.


  1. Why couldn't they name the title character "Michael"? :(

  2. Hi doanli nice to see you. Why? Not like Dennis?

  3. Haven't seen this, but have heard lots of good things about it. May have to check it out now. Hugs.

  4. I loved this movie! The kids did, too.

  5. Simon's best for me is still Shaun of the dead - not sure it if you have ever seen his series SPACED - excellent stuff too.


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
