Storyline Heading
New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody's best friend - except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor's office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - This inspirational comedy is a big star showcase for lead Jillian Bell. Other recognizable faces such as Lil Rel Howery have only much smaller roles. Language, drug use, sexual content, and raunchy humor make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Far from being just a simple comedy about fitness and weight loss, Brittany's journey includes the healing and forgiveness it takes to really meet those goals. ...it earns a place among some of the best sports movies.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good ...never goes for the easy joke. Sure, "Brittany” is filled with witty lines. My favorite: "I tried to rescue a dog from a kill shelter — and they said I couldn't give it the future it deserves.” But there's no mocking physical humor here...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good A fun ride, spiked with touching gravity... When you cheer at the end — and you will — the laughs and the tears feel honest and richly earned. Yes, Brittany Runs a Marathon gets a little earnest at times, stopping just short of self-righteousness. But Bell is always there to pull us back. She is pure gold.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...the screenplay's cute, if somewhat insipid, humor doesn't prevent the film from feeling self-righteous. Indeed, for a comedy about a woman who makes a personal decision to get in shape, Brittany Runs a Marathon sure engages in a lot of moralizing.
