    I thought this movie was excellent and found it funny from start to finish! Although I know we all have different tastes and what one persons likes might not be the same as another but if you like light hearted British humour this is the one for you! I admit the storyline isn't the strongest but the acting makes up for it and it wouldnt have been the same if different actor/actresses were used.

    At the risk of making you cringe by using the word "nice", that"s what this film is: a nice little comedy. Top marks firstly as it"s about an hour and a half long (perfect); secondly you are guaranteed some laughs because it stars Simon Pegg; thirdly and interestingly it"s directed by David Schwimmer of "Friends" fame, so there"s good pedigree from the outset.

    A fair number of laughs ensue as Pegg enters a marathon with no previous running experience...yes, you can guess the rest. With quite brilliant turns from friend Dylan Moran and landlord Harish Patel along the way, Hanz Azaria adds further quality to this as Pegg"s superfit love rival and marathon opponent. What more could you ask for? A perfect light hearted, funny film next time you"re in need of a laugh (and probably a takeaway) after the usual long week at work. Can"t go wrong!

A slightly different slant on the 'slacker' comedy genre directed by 'Friends' star David Schwimmer. Five years ago Dennis (Simon Pegg) was at the altar about to marry Libby (Thandie Newton), his pregnant fiancee. He got cold feet and headed for the hills, and he's been going in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers Libby's now hooked up with high-flying go-getter Whit (Hank Azaria), he realises it's now or never. Assisted by his friend Gordon (Dylan Moran), he decides to enter a marathon to show he's not a quitter but then finds out just how much sweat, strain and pain it takes to run for 26 miles. No one rates his chances, but Dennis knows this is the only way to stop being a running joke.
