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

Crazy Credits

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.)

funny as heck!
19 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

In this very funny movie David Cross stars as Ronnie Dobbs, Ronnie is the very cliched hillbilly from Mr. Show who was popular enough to get his own movie. In the movie Ronnie's on again off again wife refuses his proposal of marrage,which leads to Terry Twillstein, a failed inventor(in a very funny scene involving a device called the "Food eliminator" the device blows up and one of the blades flies at high speeds into the unbelievably happy female co-host chest who hasn't wanted to see that)sees Ronnie getting arrested on a cop show called "FUZZ" goes and propositions Ronnie to come to hollywood, once there he become's reality tv's newest sensation bumping "elimination island" A survivor parody where those who are eliminated are eaten. the funny David Koechner plays clay Ronnie's friend who every time you see his he's even more injured each time. So if your walking through the video store and you see this movie, rent it.
