Run Fatboy Run


In order to give you a full dose of Simon Pegg, we’ve got a sweet little giveaway for you.


Brian Gibson loves to buy DVDs. Come with him on his weekly journey into the depths of credit card debt as he tells you what to buy, rent and avoid.



While I’ll admit that Run Fatboy Run has it’s moments and a fair share of big laughs, it’s not recommendable due to the fact that there are more cliches than you can shake a stick at. Pretty much every cliche you can find in any romantic comedy or inspirational sports movie can be found at some point in the film.


Well, it seems Americans may have some taste in movies after all. Superhero Movie, well, was not so super after all. The winning movie this weekend was the gambling pic 21, beating out Horton Hears a Who! and Superhero Movie.


Following Simon Pegg’s super-cool performance in the live-wire Brit-cop parody that was last year’s Hot Fuzz, the pressure was on to follow up in his next project with the same writing prowess that made that film so freakin’ good. The resulting film is Run Fatboy Run, a humorous, compact little flick which possesses a slightly different overall style than that of his previous works.



On This Week’s Show: We get Stop-lossed by a few bad movies, including one that was made under the MTV Films label (Stop-Loss) and another that might as well have been (21). We also take on the wonder that is Simon Pegg in his latest film, Run Fatboy Run, a concept that speaks directly to us — we just aren’t listening. We also run through our April Movie Preview, giving you a good list of the films you should be marking on your calendar — as well, we expose Kevin’s undying love for UFC fighters in bikini bottoms. Oh, and there is another stupid parody movie coming out — we take a moment to explain the pile of suck that is Superhero Movie.


As fanboys across the country mobilize for a protest against the Weinstein Company and their release Superhero Movie, everyone else will be out there trying to pick something to see this weekend. Will the protests stop the big parody from taking the top spot? We have our doubts.
