Storyline

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 The Fuzz

Trivia

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 »

So bad even Bob and David disowned it.
25 November 2003 | by DavidGTaylorSee all my reviews

Yeah, so I downloaded Run, Ronnie, Run a few months ago from Kazaa and thought it was lame as all heck. I love Mr. Show and thought that the Ronnie Dobbs sketches were pretty funny, but this movie isn't. There are some funny scenes, I guess, but I don't remember it. Bad movies have that effect on me. I can't remember the really horrible parts because I force them out of my memory. I'm sure it could've been a lot better had Bob & David chosen another director, and put a little more effort into it. Also, giving Ronnie redeeming qualities really isn't a good idea either. Ronnie is supposed to be like an amoral, violent, drunken redneck that gets arrested for a living. Not a sweet man who goes on a mission.

Oh yeah, and I think most of us all know that movies based on sketches usually suck.

Bob and David (especially Bob) are obviously talented and funny enough (watch Mr. Show), but this movie doesn't show that talent much.
