Simon Pegg is clearly, right now, someone who can do little wrong at the box office. Run Fatboy Run follows hot on the heels of Hot Fuzz, and again finds its star delivering a quality comedy turn, in a film that boasts a good few laughs too.
Directed by Friends star David Schwimmer, Run Fatboy Run casts Pegg as a security guard fed up of being outrun by the people hes supposed to catch. Hes also determined to try and prove to his ex-fiancee (Thandie Newton) that hes a changed man, and thus decides to take on the London Marathon, where hell be up against the new man in her life (Hank Azaria).

Pegg is on good form in Run Fatboy Run, and genuinely delivers a character you want to root for. Yet its the supporting players who walk off with the plaudits too. Dylan Moran in particular is in great form, as is Harish Patel, while the likes of Thandie Newton, Hank Azaria and David Walliams also turn in good work.

Cleverly knowing not to outstay its welcome, and only occasionally stuttering under the weight of some laboured work behind the camera from Schwimmer, Run Fatboy Run is an easy, quite funny and light on the brain comedy, that helps cement Peggs growing status as a quality leading actor. Worth checking out. --Jon Foster

Synopsis
A listless-yet-lovable loser (SHAUN OF THE DEAD's Simon Pegg) thinks he's found the way out of his rut and into the heart of his ex-fiancee: running a marathon. David Schwimmer (FRIENDS) directs this comedy with a script from Pegg and THE STATE's Michael Ian Black.

Really!? I can't stand the guy, thought he was one of the least funny guys on the planet... And most annoying to boot. Still, I gotta increase the respect I have for him now

loads in Milton keynes branch and slough.

I've always adored Simon Pegg, but afraid to say this film didn't really cut it for me (not a patch on Spaced, nor SOTD) - but cool deal though if you did like it
