Review: Run, Fatboy, Run

David Schwimmer’s (Friends) first theatrical movie as a director, is to no one’s surprise a comedy. A softie romantic comedy though, as it’s quite predictable in most ways, but has to have it from the rooting for the “loser guy winning back his girlfriend”. And it works in some ways, starring Simon Pegg as the main character (also responsible for the screenplay). The characters and the acting are quite alright too, ‘cept for the kid reading off cue cards while having trouble implementing the ordered facial expression.
If you’re into small scale rom-coms, this is for you, though it doesn’t rise above the rest in any particular way.7-.
