Running is rarely easy, but this movie is a good reminder on how it can be enjoyable, especially if others are there to cheer you on.

This was a great mix of comedy/ tearjerker, lovely story about a overweight woman that wants to improve her life that deals with a lot in between which was so entertaining to me.

The film is an entertaining watch and hammers home a few good messages.

If the plot gets a bit predictable, the proceedings are saved by Bell's hilarious riffing.

Just run along with her and enjoy her humor and mood swings and her engaging set of friends, most of whom have learned how to race life's marathon.

As in life, the transformation is slow and fraught with setbacks; yet we can at that pace better experience her real-life struggles as they are entertaining and occasionally eccentric.

I do feel like the film loses its way in writing a bit near the end but ultimately it means very well and does a job of entertaining its viewers.

I enjoyed Brittany's responses to unexpected situations in life.

Save your money.

If anyone sees it and disagrees, you have to let me know why, because this movie was so touching and entertaining, I actually can't imagine how that would be the case.

Unchallenging, formulaic run of the mill, big-screen TV.

The film allows Brittany to proceed at her own pace, signified by the slow release of 35 pounds and a will to improve.

Entertaining little film.

Don't waste you time or money on this traumatic toilet

It's an entertaining, humorous, and poignant race.
