Run, Fatboy, Run (12A)
Brit comedy's friendly feel
Can anyone buy Ross from Friends as a Big Screen movie director? Stranger still to see David Schwimmer at the helm of a quintessentially British comedy.
(12A, 100 mins) Simon Pegg, Thandie Newton, Hank Azaria, Dylan Moran
Pegg - co-writer with Michael Ian Black and fairly fresh from his huge hit with Hot Fuzz- discovers the love of his life, Newton, who he abandoned at the altar five years previously, is about to hitch up with high-flyer business type Azaria (the man of a hundred voices in The Simpsons). Winning her back somehow involves running a marathon. Go figure.
