Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) -- S: Jillian Bell





Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon. Award-winning playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo makes his directorial debut with Brittany Runs a Marathon, an uproarious, irreverent and surprisingly emotional comedy inspired by real events. The irresistible cast, led by Jillian Bell, lends heart and soul to this inspirational story of a party girl who finally finds real friends — and dignity — by taking control of her future, one city block at a time.

Coming to Theaters August 23, 2019!

I saw this trailer over the weekend and I thought it looked pretty good.

Reviews out of Sundance were very positive: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bri...uns_a_marathon

I like Jillian Bell. Her mannerisms just make me laugh.

This looks decent. I’ll check it out when I get a chance.

I like Jillian Bell. Very funny lady. Loved her as the Pimp in Office Christmas Party.

Saw this on saturday. It was good but I was expecting it to be better after all the buzz. Better first half than second in my opinion.
