Film Friday: ’21’, ‘Run, Fat Boy, Run’

Live vicariously this week with a few films that put you in the shoes of high rollers, marathon runners, soldiers, and mock superheroes. In the clichéd 21, Jim Sturgess plays a geeky student out to make a few hundred thousand bucks in a Las Vegas scheme; Run, Fat Boy, Run has Simon Pegg trying to prove his love by running in a marathon; Stop-Loss is a drama about the plight of soldiers at war; and Superhero Movie spoofs those lovely men and women in tights.
