Fat and Fantastic!
I loved Shaun of the dead and hot fuzz so i knew i would like this but it was even funnier than i thought it was going to be.
A strong cast, the storyline was obvious but then i think that was the point, it was supposed to be a cliché, that’s why it seemed funnier. The direction and writing were very good and generally the pace of the film was perfect.
I adore Simon Pegg in these roles, his ability to play the straight, flawed individual but make him the funniest man on screen is great and you’re drawn to his story, no matter how ridiculous his predicament is. His best friend was hilarious, the setting of the London marathon was a great idea and Hank Azaria played his part well as the whole way through i wanted him to not get the girl and lose the race.
It’s not as funny as Simon’s other films but i really enjoyed it and it was well worth paying to see, in fact i’d watch it again tomorrow as there was so many laughs throughout to hold my interest.
Overall i love the Britishness of this film, the good guy and his basic life, it’s not showy, or Hollywood it’s just a simple film with comedy stars doing silly things and making us laugh, a perfect pick me up if you ask me.
Those who whine about Pegg’s writing should learn to read
First off, I thought this movie was quite good. But setting that aside, I just wanted to comment on a couple of the comments that were criticizing Pegg and putting this film in the same category as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Spaced.
This film was directed by David Schwimmer. It was written by Michael Ian Black. This is NOT a Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright film or a Pegg/Stevenson series. Trying to compare them is akin to comparing The Royal Tenenbaums to Shanghai Knights; sure both featured Owen Wilson, but he was only creatively involved in one. Separating the faces from the actual creators is pretty important in this context…
So for those commenting on how Pegg is losing it or that this is a poor British film, I would point out two things–1) Pegg had nothing to do with its content, and 2) it is NOT a British Film, unless Schwimmer and Black have moved to the UK in the past year…
As to the creative team themselves, Schwimmer did a pretty decent job behind the camera, getting solid performances from both Pegg and Moran. Black, who if you don’t recognize click the handy link under “writer”, has a very, um, “unique” sense of humor and style that I personally enjoy, but in the same breath there is a reason that Stella was not a huge success. It’s very specific, and you either love it or hate it.
Personally, I tend to fall into the former category.
