"As a voracious Mr. Show fan, I had expected that Bob & David's feature film debut (as a team) would be as clever and as funny as Mr. Show, the vehicle that propelled them to cult favorite status. However, operating under a studio that re-edited and reworked their movie, Bob & David lost their creative control over their project. The result is a movie not worthy of the Mr. Show moniker. Significantly dumbed-down, and played out like a one-note joke, Run Ronnie Run is less like the fresh inventiveness of Mr. Show, and more like one of those tired SNL movies which features a once-brilliant character just going through the motions.In the end, it's easy to see why Bob & David wanted to discard this film, a mangled version of their concept. Shame on New Line Cinema for tainting the genius of Bob & David, and then shame on them for refusing to issue this film a theatrical release, only to offer the film on DVD for a quick buck.Still, for Bob & David DVD completists, this is a must-have companion to Mr. Show."
Not as bad as you'd think

"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."
A fun Romp with Ronnie

"In a day when it's hard to find a comedy that you can actually laugh aloud, Run Ronnie Run is just that. The characters are off-beat, and David Cross is at his funniest in this silly comedy. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that wants or needs a good laugh."
