Brittany Runs a Marathon is in select theaters on August 23rd, 2019.

Brittany Runs a Marathon is about a hard-partying woman who receives a startling wake-up call when a visit to the doctor reveals how unhealthy she is. Motivated to lose weight, she soon takes up running to help her prepare for her ultimate goal of competing in the New York City Marathon.

While this movie did bring some laughs and some feel good moments, I think the movie still lacked something to grasp the audience into feeling more for the Brittany character. We keep seeing her trying and trying and then we do feel the let down that happens in the movie, but I'm not sure we really care as the audience.

The question I asked myself during this movie was did Jillian Bell really lose all that weight, or was she wearing a fat suit? It might make me start to run, but who are we kidding, I would never run for fun. I will have to do some research on this one.

The characters gel well together on screen and made you interested into seeing how they react. This movie does take a serious subject and while most Americans are obese, this movie was eye opening to the fact of how we are as a society. We need to get healthy, and we need to focus on ourselves, but we also shouldn't over due it.

This movie does bring some laughs, where I did chuckle myself, it just seems better as a cute girls night out movie. So get your gal pals and a big bucket of ice cream, and enjoy this one.

Make sure you stay during the credits to see the real Brittany, which is amazing to see that this movie is based on a true story.
