Last night, I went out to see “Run, Fatboy, Run!” with Andrew and my lovely friend Celia.
I’m already pretty fond of Simon Pegg’s older movies, but I think this one tops them all. The theme is more appealing to girls than zombies or village cops, so that might have something to do with it. It might also have to do with the fact that the spotlight is much more on Pegg, rather than sharing it with Nick Frost and some guns. And it might have to do with Thandie Newton being so adorable, Hank Azaria playing the over-confident American so well and a handful of classic cameos from the likes of David Walliams and Stephen Merchant.
Take all the above, mix them gently together and you’ve got my favourite comedy of the year by miles.
Definitely comes with two thumbs up, and a big toe too.
