Kazakh TV talking head Borat is dispatched to the United States to report on the greatest country in the world. With a documentary crew in tow, Borat becomes more interested in locating and marrying Pamela Anderson.
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
On the "Mr. Show" 4th season commentary, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross talk of a different ending to the film that would have taken Ronnie to Scotland. While there he would have found and killed the Loch Ness Monster, gotten knighted by the queen of England, have sex with her, then steal her VCR. They never bothered trying to sell it to New Line Cinema since they knew they would never go for it. See more »
[singing as Ronnie Dobbs]
I thought that my home was my castle / With no one scrutinizing me / No pigs, no lyin' bitch, no hassle / Y'all are brutalizing' me / Can't a man not drink his beer in silence? / Can't a man not crudely lie and scream? / Can't a man not control his bitch with violence? / Y'all are brutalizing me

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.)

O.K, true, this isn't quite up to the quality level of Mr. Show, but it is redeemed by several hilarious scenes: namely, the "Survivor" parody, the Jack Black musical number with an animated squirrel, and of course, the "Fat Kid Kicks Ass" sequence. Holy Shamoly, that has got to be the funniest fight scene in a movie ever.
Worth a rental, at the very least.
