Simon Pegg’s ever-personable blokeyness holds this middling comedy together from start to finish-line. Five years on from a wedding-day panic that saw him leaving pregnant Thandie Newton at the altar, he’s now working as a lowly security guard. The arrival of slick financier Hank Azaria in her life gives him cause to shape up and win her back, though accepting his rival’s challenge of running head-to-head in London’s latest marathon seems an unlikely route to redemption, given that the superfit Yank lines up as odds-on favourite against this pot-bellied Brit.

Sounds predictable? Trust me, it is, what with Pegg’s supporting team (slacker Dylan Moran and roly-poly Asian landlord Harish Patel) filling in the gaps, and bonding opportunities with his son intended as emotional undertow. What should be dreadfully synthetic actually plays as a pleasant time-passer, thanks to a goodly supply of one-liners, and Pegg and Newton’s facility for investing a string of hokey plot devices with genuine warmth. Formulaic, yet disarmingly enjoyable.

Terrible film. Anyone who gives this more than one star has nor seen this film and is only trying ti increase its rating.I lost the will to live half way through and wanted to fast forward the film to finish the race. The best bits were to see the sights of London.Any one in Greater London should use their money to buy a one day travelcard rather than buy this film.

I watched it on a recent Virgin flight, laughed so hard I had to be asked to quieten down as other passengers could hear me through their headphones! British comedy at its best.

Amazingly... rubbish. All the jokes were lame and had been used many times before. The ending was also highly predictable and incredibly cheesy. Not worth wasting your time with.

Im fed up of people comparing this film to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and using terrible spelling whilst doing it. If youre going to compare this to any of his previous work, go buy both series' of spaced. People who say the film lacks in laughs arent getting the subtleties of it. Theres plenty of gags, you just have to work for them. Trust me, it makes them more satisfying. The Spaced crew should love this film.

This film was so good I so it twice. Dylan Moran and Simon Pegg are amazing. The critics have been giving luke warm reviews but I think it is funnier than Hot Fuzz.

Personally I don't think Mr Pegg has done anything to touch "Shaun of the Dead". However anyone who makes me laugh is a welcome visitor on my TV and PC and pop by anytime, I have a house of musicians, actors and writers so you'd feel right at home. I liked Hot Fuzz - FAB. And this one is great too, but Shaun was a 5 star not a 4 or 3 star. This is the hard part - SUSTAIN - I hope u can do it Sir. Xx
