Run, Fat Boy, Run! - David Schwimmer

Let's start by saying that it's a Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) movie. He co-wrote it with Michael Ian Black and adapted it to British humor; it was meant to take place in New York but got picked up in the U.K. Run, fat Boy, Run is the story of Denis (Simon Pegg), a regular Joe that left his fiancé pregnant in the altar, is trying to recuperate her love but has nothing to offer. Once he meets his ex's new beau Hank Azaria), he starts making lot's of efforts to better his life and his image and among them he starts training for the marathon. Schwimmer's directorial debut is a jewel! There's many touchy-feely moments and leaves you with an overall satisfactory feel. Only weird thing was that the bad guy of the story was American... but isn't the director American as well?

By the way, Thandie Newton also showed up for the Q & A and she looked way too skinny... guess what was popping out of her strapless dress? her chest bones...
