Three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgleris everybody's best friend -- except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor's office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
Jillian Bell worked with a marathon trainer to help her figure out how her running style would look and evolve throughout the film as she goes from a novice to an experienced runner training for a long distance run. See more »

What a surprising, perfectly toned and honest movie!
So, you're not wrong, Andrea, but you have it twisted. I am not going to get into it, but I dumbfoundedly shocked by this movie. It was honest, funny, not at all preachy or perfect, relatable on multiple levels and moving. For a fat guy who is trying, always trying, it was clear this movie was made by people who understand the struggle of the human condition. And not necessarily just those of being fat. This was more than about a fat girl who becomes a good normal. There were portions of the dialogue I wanted to record and send to others in my life, and portions I wanted to record and send to myself. IDK yet, but this movie could easily become one of my favorite movies of the year.
If anyone sees it and disagrees, you have to let me know why, because this movie was so touching and entertaining, I actually can't imagine how that would be the case.
