Not as bad as you'd think,
This review is from: Run Ronnie Run! (DVD)
Despite Bob and David's own scathing reviews and the at times slow pace of the film, Run Ronnie Run still stands as one of the best comedies in recent years.
Keeping in mind that Bob and David originally wanted to do an entirely different film but were pressured into making a Ronnie Dobbs movie.
Keeping in mind that Bob and David were eventually snaked by Troy Miller when they were barred from partaking in the editing process.
Keeping in mind that the story is thin and the pace fluctuates between raging Mr. Show hyper-irony and dull Hollywood shlock.
It's really not that bad of a movie.
The Thrilling Miracles segment was pure twisted genius.
The 3 Times 1 Minus 1 video was perhaps the most pointed take on...RnB love songs yet.
And the Ass Kicking Fat Kid scene was the best hurried plot resolution device I've ever seen.
Even if the plot was trite, characters thin and the pace slow, the calibre of comedy in this film is still unmatched by any movies of late and more than made up for its flaws.
