This clichéd romantic comedy stars
Simon Pegg as Dennis, a man who literally runs away on his wedding
day to his pregnant wife Libby (Thandi Newton). Fast forward five
years later and Dennis' life has gone from bad to worse as he now
works as security guard in a women's lingerie store.
To compound the situation, his
ex-fiancé Libby has met a new man called Whit (Hank Azaria) who
threatens to take his dream woman away from in and also the
affections of his son. To Dennis, it appears Whit is the perfect the
man, however as he attempts to become more involved with his son, he
soon learns that Whit is not all he adds up to be and Dennis decides
to compete in the same marathon as Libby's new partner in an attempt
to gain her affection again.

Run is quite a clichéd movie that although is enjoyable, it has a
few laughs, however is a little too mainstream for Simon Pegg. Not
even his entertaining "looks" and acting ability can save David
Although the video and audio quality is
quite impressive and clear on DVD, where the DVD does shine is
through some of the special features, especially the goof reel and
outtakes. A great movie for couples for those cold nights in!
