    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Run, Fat Boy, Run stays out of sitcom quicksand long enough to make you think that Schwimmer has a knack for this comedy-directing thing. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Amiable, consistently amusing and surprisingly affecting, it has the flavor of a Nick Hornby novel, with its focus on an overgrown boy struggling to grow up and be a man. show more

    Every ounce of comedy is so forced and full-on ridiculous that when characters express even a smidgen of sentiment, it feels like a parody. That's because nothing in "Fatboy" feels real. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The pic benefits from a loveable-loser turn by Simon Pegg, but the "Shaun of the Dead" star's presence may also lead to disappointment for those familiar with his work. show more

    Suggestion: When making a film called Run Fat Boy Run, how about hiring a fat boy? show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    One of the problems with the new comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run is that it’s not English enough, even though its antagonist is a thoroughly detestable American go-getter. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    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. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The result is tepid humor and a less-than-compelling feel-good story of redemption and re-kindled romance. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Its peculiar strain of anti-Americanism aside, Run, Fat Boy, Run tries to bridge the gap between self-deprecating Brits and self-aggrandizing Yanks, settling down somewhere between the two. Don't ask me where, exactly, but this mid-Atlantic meeting point is an ultra-neutral zone. show more

    I loved it!! I watched it by myself but can't wait to share it with the family. It was very funny and heart warming.

    This movie was good, very entertaining, despite the first half of the film really slow, but the middle, and ending was really worth-seeing. I loved every performance in the movie, and I would see it again.

    This was a refreshingly funny movie! We've had enough of dark, depressing movies lately! Everyone in this film was fun, and very entertaining! Get your popcorn, soda, and be prepared to enjoy what movies are meant to be! An escape from everyday doom and gloom news...to pure joy!

    My 13yr old daughter didn't want to see the movie because her friends said it was silly. My husband and I took her anyway and she enjoyed it as much as we did! This was a lighthearted love story and a welcome change from the stress and strife of today's world. It felt real good to laugh out loud.

    This movie was directed by David schwimmer and feature Simmon Peg. I went in not knowing anything about the movie. The entire theatre was filled with laughter through the entire movie. There were 2 times were I laughed so hard it made my stomach hurt. It was crude and silly at time, but it has been a while since I have seen a film that kept me laughing the entire time.
