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 »

Quotes

Mandy Patinkin: [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

David Cross and Bob Odenkirk can do better
15 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

David Cross and Bob Odenkirk can do better.

As actors, Cross and Odenkirk can easily do better than this movie. However, they also wrote the script for this, so are almost entirely to blame for its lameness.

Very silly movie. For whatever reason, aims to glorify stupid redneck antics. Maybe rednecks were the target audience...

Not all bad. There are some genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Anything that spoofed Hollywood and celebrity, their superficiality and vacuousness, was reasonably well done.

In keeping with this, Bob Odenkirk is the one to watch. David Cross' character is just plain irritating.
