We gave it an D

”It’s kind of like a comic version of Rocky,” explains David Schwimmer of his feature-directing debut, about a down-and-out guy (Shaun of the Dead‘s Simon Pegg) who enters a marathon in an attempt to win back the fiancée (Thandie Newton) he left at the altar five years ago. ”We talked a lot about changing the title at some point, ’cause [Pegg’s] got a nice beer belly, but he’s not fat fat,” says Schwimmer. ”But it brought a smile to people’s faces, so we just kept it.”
