Run, Fatboy, Run

2

Simon Pegg is Dennis, a deadbeat dad who abandoned pregnant fiancee Libby (Thandie Newton) on their wedding day. Five years later, she’s engaged to a rich and fit American (Hank Azaria). His male pride pricked, Dennis tries to win Libby back by training for a marathon. Because that’s bound to undo the betrayal, running about a bit… David Schwimmer’s direction feels too TV-toned to go the feature-length distance and while Pegg works to draw laughs from every opportunity (including the chat-track), it’s only a matter of time before it runs out of puff.
