Jillian Bell. She is fantastic here. It’s hard not to root for her to have a positive outcome by the end of this story. Gotta love her snarkiness in this movie as well.
Utkarsh Ambudkar. He is very entertaining in this. Part of the fun of this movie is the chemistry he has with Jillian Bell’s character. Gotta love their banter.
Michaela Watkins. How can you not love her in this? I just want to give her a high-five for always being good in all the supporting roles she tends to get in movies.
While it’s easy to enjoy this film just because of the cast; proven by my previous three positive picks, the story is also very effective as a dramedy. Joy. Laughter. Sadness. Hits you with all the right emotions. Inspirational even.
Has some good surprises and plot turns, to keep you hooked into the movie.
If a movie about running is able to give you the feeling like you want to take up running yourself, then does that means the movie is even more of a success?
Despite it being “based on the true story,” it’s still susceptible to hit some derivative plot tropes.
There were a couple of scenes that were cringe worthy, to the point of it being too cliche. Maybe it was true though?
Some plot lines weren’t completely resolved to my liking.
Not necessarily a movie that I would consider to be very cinematic looking… if you know what I mean.
