Run, Fat Boy, Run
Has anyone seen the British comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run? It’s weird how British films are always advertised loudly, get in the cinema, and fizzles out quickly. Are they really that bad? I remember a whole string of comedies from Cloud Nation – one of the many affectionate names I have for this country) – Love Actually, Hot Fuzz, Run, Fat Boy, Run. Ok, there weren’t many, but my point is that British comedies are that bad at all and very seldom have slapstick jokes. Anyway, RFBR is a romantic comedy starring Simon Pegg, one of my favourie British actors, Thandie Newton (hawt!) and Hank Azaria, the guy who does Homer S’s voice. And, it was directed by David Schwimmer. David who? Ross Geller! Monica’s brother? FRIENDS? Ah…there you go. Yes, I found it surprising too that he was directed this film, but meh, whachagondo? It was a nice, sweet romantic comedy and if you’re at home with your partner, wondering what to do after all the vigorous exercise, this is the film to watch, not Terminator 2.
Verdict – 3½/5
