Run Ronnie Run is a heart warming spin-off from the cult hit HBO series "Mr. Show". It is the story of Ronwell Quincy Dobbs (David Cross), who has a unique talent for getting arrest. A British television personality, Terry Twillstein (Bob Odenkirk), gets sight of Ronnie and brings Ronnie to Hollywood to get him his own TV show. Ronnie must then deal with his new life, while having to deal with missing his ex-wife that he left back home. This is a delightful comedy with countless celebrity cameos by Dave Foley, Jeff Goldblum, and Jack Black just to name a few. As well as many appearances by characters for the hit television series "Mr. Show". Written by
Have you read the letter's I'm getting. "Dear Ronnie, my name is Maurice. I am eight years old. I am your biggest fan. How come you are not so drunk anymore? My daddy says you were never drunk, but just a Hollywood phony. I told him he was wrong and he beat the shit out of me. Love, Maurice." Ronnie, I have stacks of these back at my office.

This movie will never leave you sad. It works on so many levels that you can watch it in mixed company. You know, a room full of manual laboring joe-6-packs, with some bankers and lawyers or a bunch of barflies and some hard working family types. Most likely different groups will laugh at different parts while the non-laughing groups will wonder what they are missing and even that would be amusing. Pretty soon, everyone is laughing.
I'm a little bit of all of the above so I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
The parody aspects were sadly, hilarious, the dialog was genius-stupid, the subplots were predictably quirky and nothing unexpected should surprise you. If you follow the obvious it is briefly funny because it's shallow, if you go deeper there is even more to laugh at.
If you liked Very Bad Things, Envy, The Jerk, The Stupids, etc. You'll enjoy Run Ronnie Run. -Jahfre
