Collection of three film comedies. In 'Run, Fat Boy Run' (2007), five years ago Dennis (Simon Pegg) was at the altar about to marry Libby (Thandie Newton), his pregnant fiancee. He got cold feet and headed for the hills, and he's been going in circles ever since. When Dennis discovers Libby's now hooked up with high-flying go-getter, Whit (Hank Azaria), he realises it's now or never. Assisted by his friend, Gordon (Dylan Moran), he decides to enter a marathon to show he's not a quitter, but then finds out just how much sweat, strain and tears it takes to run for 26 miles. No one rates his chances, but Dennis knows this is the only way to stop being a running joke. In 'Dumb and Dumber' (1994), Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are a pair of hapless losers on the road, attempting to find the beautiful owner of a mislaid briefcase. Unbeknownst to them, the case contains ransom money for the woman's husband, and they find themselves pursued by his thuggish kidnappers, whilst stumbling across a series of oddballs along the way. 'Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny' (2006) stars Jack Black in his other capacity as one half of hard-rockin' spoof band, Tenacious D. This is the story of how the band Tenacious D came into being: Jack Black, a green Midwestern newcomer to California, comes across Kyle Gass playing guitar on the beach and is stricken. KG is a guitar god and JB wants to be part of his life. The marriage of his classic rock voice and KG's shredding, face-melting solos proves fruitful. Their partnership soon gives rise to the idea that the two could go for rockin' world domination and this they set out to achieve. The road to rock Valhalla is a long and arduous one though. To shorten it, they set out on the quest for The Pick of Destiny - housed in a museum some miles away but promising its possessor mythological rock immortality. However, its theft proves to be quite a complicated business...
