    Well it has some funny moments but the story is so ridiculous it's untrue. A few nice cameos here & there but nowhere near as good as Pegg's other work. Dylan Moran plays himself yet again as well.

    Oh, no. Oh dear. If only this could have been better. It's a kind of funny premise, and Hank Azaria is funny. Oh well; I'm looking forward to At World's End.

    Run, fatboy,Run is entertainment. It has a perfect balance of humor, grossout gags and a big heart.What more do you want?It is a film where beneath all the idiocy and goofiness lies a film that has a lesson to it and humor, which most movies don't possess

    Not funny, not inspirational, not convincing, not entertaining, not memorable... actually it's not much of anything.

    Predictability is rampant but it still provides a decent amount of laughs.

    Definitely not Simon Peggs best work but an entertaining movie no doubt. Run Fatboy Run is worth watching but don't expect it to be absolutely hilarious.

    Fatboy nearly succeeds in spite of itself, thanks to Pegg, who makes a character who does some detestable things seem strangely likeable.
  2. Rather like the faltering way Dennis runs the race, Pegg the performer insists that we keep watching, ever hopeful for a decent gag. And we spend most of our time thinking back to movies that better showcased his talents, such as "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz."

    The film's bright spot is Irish comedian Dylan Moran, who plays Libby's charmingly dissolute cousin and who also happens to be Dennis' best friend. He's fresh, unpredictable and genuinely funny -- everything the film isn't.
