Run Fat Boy Run is a funny movie. It's not a great comedy but it is a touching and well done comedy. As usual Simon Pegg is outstanding and he's surrounded by a cast that acquits themselves well. My only problem with this film was that Thanide Newton is too skinny. Seriously, she has become Lara Flynn Boyle/Keira Knightly skinny and it does not look good on her. Hey Thandie, have a sandwich or three on me babe and get a little junk back in your trunk.
For you Little Britain fans out there David Walliams shows up in this film. His cameo is a riff on his Mr. Man character and it's one of the funnier bits in the movie.
Much funnier than I thought it was going to be and it's mainly due to Amy Poehler. Tina Fey, wisely in my opinion, stepped back and gave the laugh lines to her co-stars and they all shine in their comic roles. Steve Martin as her money grubbing new age boss is also good in this movie. I highly recommend this movie for some brainless fun.
