This one took 20 minutes or so to gain momentum, but after that point it was entertaining enough to merit watching. And then it rewards you with some fun laughs and some emotion. Was also interested in this movie for some time with David Schwimmer as the director (think: plays the funniest character on "Friends"!)

Another cute flick about a man trying to make up for his past mistakes. Dennis is clueless but absolutely in love with his ex and son and will do whatever it takes to get them back. When checking out this film, think father-son relationships, love triangles and touchy family moments. It was OK only because it wasn't original.

Predictable, formulaic, silly jokes; bland, and the protagonist is fairly unlikeable. But at least this movie didn't annoy me.
Worth the price that I paid, $0.00.

Every time I see this guy: Simon Pegg, I like him more and more. Im still searching for the movie he is in that I do not enjoy. Unfortanely, I enjoyed this one very much too.

Simon Pegg is an amazing actor and comedian which I have been following since his stint on SPACED. He's subtle and awkward while foolishly attempting to be smooth an cool. Something which is more than easy to relate too.

Run, Fatboy, Run was very entertaining and kind interesting in it's own sense. I truly believed Dennis was going to do much more than he did, like any heartfelt comedy, but this movie took a strange and weird turn towards the end.

Funny, entertaining, and yes sadly I'll admit this film was rather encouraging. The characters were hilarious in their own respects and even the antagonist had a little flavor to him. Not just another Jerk, you actually felt [at least I did] that he [Whit] had a chance to teach Dennis something thoughtful and inspiring. Sadly I was mistaken, much like I am which I watch a Pegg film, just when you catch on to what's happening, he switches it up on you.

Predictable and corny, but still fun.

It is a heartwarming comedy.

Painfully predictable

Uneven fare with some genuinely funny moments, principally due to the interplay between old stagers Simon Pegg and Dylan Moran. Not bad as a directorial debut for David Schwimmer, either, and gutsy of him to take on a British film, as well.
