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

Cult Leader Gleh'n:
What does Jeff Goldblum want?
I want my money back. And I want angels to give it to me. And pixies to count it out, and a gnome or a hobbit or an elf to sleep at the foot of my bed, and have - I just want them all over my backyard. But no matter what happens with any of that, I DO want my money back.

During the ending credits, "outtakes" are seen. All these "outtakes" are spoofs of outtakes from Jackie Chan movies. For example, after each "injury" four Asian men in red jumpsuits run out to help the "injured" (similar to many Jackie Chan movies,) and the "outtake" ends with the "injured" person giving a thumbs up to the camera while on a stretcher (a la Jackie Chan.)

As far as many are concerned, this is just another stupid fart joke comedy. Well I disagree. Although the humour may not be tasteful, it is still very funny. A lot of the humour seems to be very reminiscent of South Park, almost a hats off to the works of Trey Parker and Matt Stone (whom also make a cameo appearance). Run Ronnie Run does repeat itself however, and a lot of the time you feel "This is the same joke but to a more extreme degree". This is definitely worth watching, and as I got it for £2 on DVD (Ex-rental... it's the only way) you can't complain. Lend it off a friend though, I wouldn't really class it as something you could watch again and again. If you like this film I suggest you check out earlier Parker and Stone productions, namely Cannibal The Musical.
