    • Excerpt: [Colaizzo’s] found his perfect star in Jillian Bell…who has proven she was more than ready to step up from supporting roles that proved her comedic chops into a dramatic lead leavened with humor.

    • Excerpt: Brittany Runs a Marathon has enough charm, laughs, and wonderfully eclectic characters — especially Jillian Bell‘s eponymous Brittany — to get it past its weaker moments.
  • Roxana Hadadi @ Pajiba
    • Excerpt: Jillian Bell is deeply likable in ‘Brittany Runs a Marathon,’ a comedy that honestly tackles anxieties about wellness and weight.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: As the pounds are shed, however, so too does the lightness of Brittany’s personality. Actress Jillian Bell must act within the confines of a screenplay that continues to keep her character within a place of despair.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Brittany’s arc from drunken party girl to lonely island to trying to maintain life balance like the rest of us is what will most likely connect this Sundance-winner with audiences looking to root for an example of someone who confronts the worst, running and self improvement, and comes out the other side.
