I'm not going to rehash what others have already said. Brittany runs a half-marathon and then the "why". She looks super fit, doesn't seem to have any physical limitations, etc. Then she has a car accident that leaves her with her legs severed. This causes her to be unable to run for a while. She runs for a little while and then goes through the whole rest of the race trying to recover and running another half-marathon. The next day, she's in pain. She runs another marathon and then goes through the whole rest of the race. She looks good running half-marathons, but that's about it. I could go on and on and on. But I'll stop after watching the climax. It's a typical "revenge plot" movie, and I like that. The movie was okay. I didn't think it was great, but I did enjoy it. For those who like it, I think you should check it out. I give it a B.

If you liked Wreck it Ralph you'll probably like this one. The movie contains a lot of jokes you would not find in a video game or cartoon. Some of them are not even for me, but if you like those kinds of jokes then you'll love this. The main character is very funny too. The movie is full of references to cartoons, video games, and movies that you already know. It has some other jokes as well, but they don't hurt the humor too much. The main character is voiced by Tim Allen and you can also hear his voice as the voice of Wreck it Ralph. The animation is very well done. It is very well designed. It has a kind of art style. The director's goal was to create something you would see in an animation studio. In my opinion, it is very well done. It's just great to see such a great animated movie made this way. So it's a good thing for people who love animated movies. I have to say that this movie is pretty entertaining.

I had forgotten how much I loved the first movie until I saw this sequel. It is not a bad movie, it's not even the same movie. It's just a sequel, in which there is just a lot of repetition, but it's good. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that Brittany is getting older. If the movie was less about that and more about her life, it would be better. Maybe it's because I have no idea what happened between the 2nd movie and this one, so I can't compare the two. Maybe I am just picky. But I loved the movie, and I hope that the remake will be better than this one.

Runners are a well-understood group. They mostly don't do dangerous things, like: hold a 10-hour marathon in the wild, drag giant trucks, etc. and, while I know that women runners don't do all of those things, I don't think I've ever seen any one do anything that would be labeled dangerous. So while I do like this movie, I can understand why it's getting less and less positive reviews. The acting is quite good, even though some of the lines seem improvised. The story isn't especially original, but it's fairly well-told. The music is interesting and while I know that many people dislike this movie because of the music, I don't see why they're so hostile to it. Most people can't stand the kind of music that this film has, which is fine. I was actually kind of happy that this movie was nominated for an academy award (especially since it's a low budget movie). Anyway, for what it's worth, this movie is enjoyable, even if it's not much. It's worth seeing for the acting and the music, but I also think that it's not the best movie I've ever seen, although it's not a bad movie.

The film has a central theme of not killing your neighbor. A boy who is not one of the "good guys" (who doesn't do wrong) and his father's obsession with revenge against the mafia (who protects the "good guy" and keeps him alive). The father's obsession is not wrong, of course, but it leads him down the wrong path. On top of that, it is an accurate representation of how corrupt our system is. Watch and decide for yourself.

This is a very good movie. I would say it is a little better than American Psycho. Both are good movies. This movie has a great ending that is original and good. You have to see this movie at least once to see the ending.

I have a slight problem with this movie. It should have been titled: "The People Run a Marathon, Lady". It is about a white couple and their pet cat, who starts running a marathon. Meanwhile, everyone in the local newspaper starts writing about how they are running the marathon, how they love running, and how they are going to go. Well, guess what! The cat starts running too! And also a jockey starts running. A blind man starts running. And even the people running the marathon start running too. So the movie is about a white couple who run a marathon in an hour. Yet the story takes place in a small town, where everyone is white and most people are in their 70s. But there are a lot of people who don't age, so who cares? The plot is predictable and I guess it was just trying to set up a movie for people who aren't too mature for this kind of plot.

I love this movie, and I love that it tells us a bit about how women are still in that headspace of, uh, not being satisfied. But, my husband, an actual writer, doesn't really want to watch it and I can see that. It's not easy for him to go see a movie when he's trying to get back to writing. He has a tendency to want to like things he doesn't. I get that. Anyway, this is a charming little film that puts a funny spin on the subject of women. The parts of the story where she's saying that she's going to run a marathon as a protest against domestic violence, which is definitely a hot topic. But, this story is good. The supporting characters, who are all in their 30's, are great and the dialog is just right. Even some of the nagging-nagging of the women about what they can't do is great. What a treat!

I was lucky enough to see this film on opening night in my theater and was totally swept away by the story and the acting. The film is a little bit darker than I expected and it's a little bit different. The director, Benh Zeitlin, was able to pull off a very interesting story and the actors were able to pull off their roles very well. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves a good film and a good story. If you are a fan of the original film, I would say that this film is not for you. If you are a fan of the original film, you should be able to see the difference in this film. I am very impressed with this film and I hope that more films will be made like this one.

I think the first 10 minutes are great.I really liked the idea and thought it was quite unique. The last 20 minutes are a tad boring.The whole story is fairly predictable. This movie isn't about the race itself, but more about the performance of the runner. the star was great, but the supporting cast really helped. You could really relate to her struggles and also the way she treated others. I think it could have been better but there were some big issues with the movie like the really unbelievable music and the make up and costume were really bad. Overall, I thought this movie was good but I felt it could have been better. The same cast should have been used. There was some really fantastic acting and most of it was great. The last 20 minutes were the biggest issue. Overall, I thought it was great but I still don't think it's a good movie. I give this movie a B-

On the surface, I thought the film was a bit different than what I expected. I wasn't expecting a serious movie and a very good one at that. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was funny and really good. I would say it was more of a coming of age story about a girl and how she changed as a person because of all the things that she went through. The movie wasn't trying to be Oscar worthy or anything like that, and I thought that it was a fun movie. I would say it was worth the price of admission.

This is a well put together family film. Even with its funny parts, you don't want it to end.

Having never run a marathon before, I think I would have enjoyed this more if I had gone for the easy route and not chosen to be a runner. I have been in my 30s for most of my life and been involved in running, but it would have been great to have some running in this film. I would have liked to have seen more running shots from the character's POV as it would have been more realistic. I was disappointed that it was a non-American actor who played 'The Twins' (the Grandparents) but that could have been a problem in the film itself. I think that the film was too slow and I think that there was more action and less discussion throughout the film than I would have liked. I did like the running scenes and some of the characters as the cinematography of the movie was very impressive. I thought that this film was good at times but I did not like the pace that much. I would have liked to have seen more running, and less conversation throughout the film. Overall I think that the film was a good choice but I do not think it was perfect. Overall I recommend this film to everyone but I do not think that everyone will enjoy it.

I've seen this movie twice now and I can't believe how good it is. It's not the kind of movie you'll want to see again and again but it's definitely worth the price of admission. The acting is very good and the direction is fantastic. The story is great and I think people need to watch this movie. It's a little bit too slow for my taste but I don't really care. The movie is full of emotions. It makes you laugh, cry, and make you think. I give it a 9 out of 10. I give it a 10 out of 10 for all of the emotions.

I didn't know what to expect going into this movie. I saw the trailer, and thought, "I have to see this." After reading the other reviews, I wasn't surprised. This is one of those movies that can only be enjoyed by the viewers who have never been in a car accident, or have never been at the end of a road trip, or have never been in a relationship that is simply "normal." If you are one of those people, you should probably just watch it for yourself, or read a book about it, or whatever. It's a good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I am not a huge fan of musicals. I don't like them very much. This movie was very entertaining. I thought the movie was very funny. The actors played their parts well. I thought it was very realistic. The movie is very different from all the other movies out there. I thought the movie was very good. I give it a 9 out of 10.

It was the movie that was a real eye opener for me. The dialogue was spot on and the acting was superb. I found it so refreshing to see a movie that did not show any racial issues at all. And it was a great way to start the year. It is a great movie that will stay with you for a long time.

I have been a fan of the Walking Dead since Season 1. I thought it was a great show, especially when I saw the movie. The movie was great, the show was great. I have to say, the movie was even better than I expected it to be. I was a little worried about the movie because of all the negative reviews. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. I love the actors and actresses in the movie, they are great. I am very glad I went to see it. I loved it and I am going to see it again.

I didn't expect much from this movie. It was a simple teen drama, but I thought it was really good. I am surprised it has a 4.9 rating. I watched it with a friend of mine who was bored and we both enjoyed it. It was a really good movie. It's not a perfect movie, but it's definitely a good movie. I wouldn't say it's a movie you will go back and watch again. It's a good movie to watch with your friends and have a good time. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into teen movies. It's definitely a good movie.

I have never done an IMDb review before, but felt I needed to weigh in on this movie because it's been out for a while and, considering how long and how much it was overshadowed by the hype, it's really good. I also wanted to comment on the subject of running, as I was very touched when one of the characters said, "It's not how many times you run, it's how long you're out there". I feel that the movie was about running. I thought the movie was very moving, and while it is fairly short, it still leaves you with many questions you will have to think about as you go about your daily activities. I will say that the movie is not without its faults. I would have liked a little more development of the characters' backstories as well as the message they were trying to convey. Also, it was a little long. But, I think it's a film that will appeal to everyone. As well as a movie I think will make you think.

I have watched this movie several times and each time I get more and more excited about it. It is a real eye opener and it is funny. I just saw this movie last night on Netflix and I am glad I did. It is a good movie to see on the big screen. It is also a good movie to see with a date. It is great to have a movie that can make you laugh and that you can relate to.

I think this movie is fantastic. I am not a sports fan, but this movie was so great. I think people are being overly critical of the movie. The movie was great and you can tell the actors are so into it. I am a huge fan of Tina Fey, and this movie was amazing. I think the movie was great and I am so happy that it was nominated for many awards. I think the acting was really great, and I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to watch a good movie.

This film was well written and directed, and I found myself rooting for all of the characters. It was a good story that I was able to connect with on an emotional level. I thought the cast was very good. I loved Lacey Chabert's character, and I was glad to see her back on the screen. She was a very real character and I think she really got me. I was also pleased to see how they handled the relationship between her and her boyfriend. I thought it was a very touching story. I hope to see a lot more from them in the future.

I don't understand the negativity about this movie. It's a very simple story with some beautiful moments and it was worth the time to watch. I was so moved by it. I hope they make a sequel. I would love to see these characters in more movies.
