"Run Ronnie Run" is a movie spin-off from the popular HBO sketch comedy show "Mr. Show". The recurring character Ronnie Dobbs (David Cross) is the focal point of the movie. It was directed by Troy Miller.


Ronnie Dobbs, a redneck petty criminal whose scams were caught on tape by a "Cops"-like television show called "Fuzz", is noticed by failing infomercial personality/inventor Terry Twillstein (Bob Odenkirk), who sees Dobbs's popularity with lowbrow viewers. He promotes the idea to television executives for a show, "Ronnie Dobbs Gets Arrested" in which he is arrested in a different city each week. The show becomes phenomenally successful, making Dobbs rich and famous and changing his life dramatically.


Many of the regular cast members of "Mr. Show" made appearances, including Jill Talley as Dobbs's occasional wife, and several Hollywood actors made cameos, usually as themselves. Unlike on "Mr. Show", where they each played a wide variety in every episode, Odenkirk and Cross each play a single character throughout the film, with the exception of a brief appearance by R&B duo Three Times One Minus One. Jack Black starred as a chimney sweep and sings the song "Kick in the Cunt".

Production difficulties

The film experienced a troubled production. Cross and Odenkirk, the principal writers and actors, disowned the final version. Odenkirk accused the director of seizing control of the editing process and refusing to speak directly with him and Cross [] . Cross demanded to receive no creditation or any part of the revenues. Though the film was screened at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, it never reached theaters. New Line Cinema held the film for over 2 years before releasing a final cut direct-to-video in 2003.

[ [ Run Ronnie Run - Movie Reviews, Trailers, Pictures - Rotten Tomatoes ] ] Bob Odenkirk described the movie as awkwardly edited and generally overrated due to its mistreatment by New Line Cinema.Fact|date=January 2008
