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 »

It all depends on your opinion of Mr. Show.
4 November 2004 | by Marvin BenjaminSee all my reviews

This movie is generally funny, but I can't imagine someone who hasn't seen the Ronnie Dobbs skits on Mr. Show finding it as funny as someone who has. It has a lot of really funny moments. Lots of fresh white trash jokes, not the same old recycled trailer park jokes from before. You can't beat a vomit eating dog. Then again, there were a lot of forced jokes, a bit of trying too hard to make me laugh. For some reason there were more cameos than you can shake a stick at. But the real stars of the show are David Cross and Bob Odenkirk and their sense of humor. It doesn't really apply to a wide demographic, but people that have enjoyed Mr. Show and Cross' stand up will appreciate the sense of humor. I do wish they played more than two or three roles and involved more of their Mr. Show characters into the movie. It did have Three Times One Minus One, which is good. It had Jack Black, which is very very bad. If you liked Mr. Show, you'll love this movie. If not, you won't pick up on everything and the magic of Ronnie Dobbs. It's like the Mr. Bean movie in how you'll appreciate it more if you liked the show, but dislike the recycling of the same jokes from the show.
