Bob Odenkirk and David Cross stretch one of the characters from their HBO comedy sketch series Mr. Show into a full-length feature with Run Ronnie Run!. Ronnie Dobbs (Cross) becomes a media celebrity when he becomes the star of his own show ("Ronnie Dobbs Gets Arrested"). On this premise, the writers (and director Troy Miller) hang a series of pop culture spoofs. Among the targets are Mandy Patinkin, the television series Cops, and Survivor. South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker make a cameo appearance. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

A mixed bag but worthy for Mr Show fans by underdog September 4, 2003 - 1:33 PM PDT

Not up to the level of their brilliant TV sketch comedy show, Mr Show, this spin-off movie feels like just that -- a spin-off, an extended sketch stretched too long. However, there are quite a few laugh out loud moments in here that are worth the rental, and for diehard fans it's a must. Some of the cameo appearances by famous comic actors feel like forced cameos, but some of them work quite well -- the best is the scene at the pool, after Ronnie has become a famous star (won't say anymore for fear of giving anything away), as well as a very amusing Jeff Goldblum cameo towards the end. Some of the Mr Show regulars are featured prominently as well. Again, it feels like an extended sketch, and not even based on one of their funniest bits (and I can't help but feel poking fun of rural/redneck America isn't the most challenging of targets) -- but is still often a very on-the-nose satire of reality TV and TV programming in general, as well as Americans propensity for dumbed down fare. Enough laughs to make it worthy, but you're still better off renting the show instead.
