It's more than just a command to your local, overweight bartender. It's the name of David Schwimmer's latest directorial effort. How do critics feel about the comedy? Let's take a look...
- Run, Fatboy, Run is the type of romantic comedy apt to be described as "nice" or "sweet," both of which are codewords for "unexceptional" and "useless." -- Slant Magazine
- An unapologetic throwback to the days when comedies didn't have to be all that original -- just as long as they were funny. -- Cinematical
- Schwimmer just doesn't have the directorial wit to elevate the intermittently amusing script, and none of the cast seems dedicated enough to raise the bar either. -- Film Journal International
- There are no surprises here -- just broad, frequently slapstick gags that don't avoid but do tamp down a bit on the bodily-function school of yokkery. -- Variety
