This movie was great. I was really excited to see it and I was actually really surprised because I liked it more than I thought I was going to.
The movie stars Simon Pegg as a guy who likes to run away from his problems and his feelings. He leaves his wife at the alter, while pregnant, and is now a security guard at a women's lingerie store. He ex-fiance is now together with some guy who has it all together. He's rich, smart, and athletic. It is because of this guy, that Pegg's character (Dennis) finds out he is still in love with his ex. So to compete with this new guy, he decides to run in a marathon and all he has to do is finish to get the respect from his friends and his ex-love.
Pegg is fantastic in this movie. The humor he adds to a comedy is brilliant and this comedy is brilliant. It is hysterically funny! It has a great love story, and it actually quite inspirational. And I think its directed by Ross from Friends. If you liked "Shaun of the Dead", and "Hot Fuzz", you will love "Run Fatboy Run."
