Run Ronnie Run!

After nearly two years in studio limbo, this first film from the comedy team behind the HBO series Mr. Show finally surfaces. Cross plays Ronnie Dobbs, a lovable mullethead who lands his own Cops-esque reality show that features him getting pinched in a different city each week. Though the material isn't up to Mr. Show's high standards, some great laughs abound — as when Hollywood stars beg Ronnie to rob them, or when Ronnie's only moment of soul-searching on death row concerns his last meal: waffles, just edging out corn dogs.
