    Ok ... Funniest ever to be filmed running ...
    Steven Seagal ...
    To watch him run isn't just funny running ... It's pure comic genius ...
    Most Serious (I guess I mean someone who really looks like an athlete)
    Carl Weathers in Rocky 3 ... He looks like he could just turn on the afterburners and smoke Stallone ...
    I know I know Carl Weathers played football for San Diego State and the Oakland Raiders before going to the CFL ...
    Ok ... anyone got any others ...

    Funny Running is Harrison Ford running in any of the Star Wars movies (particularily in Jedi), where his hands flap up and down far too much. They even did a parody of this on Mad TV.

    I hate to say this because I love the show, but the funniest running has to be any time Buffy runs.
    Most serious, Tom Cruise in The Firm?

    For some reason I keep thinking of Dustin Hoffman running at the end of the Graduate. I'm gonna have to say that run is both the funniest and the most serious! Purely spectacular, to be sure.

    This one is a bit more obscure:
    Joan Allen in The Contender. She needs a running coach. They also show her shooting baskets in a gym which is like a tragic opera. She should stick to acting.

    In Rushmore, after Bill Murray give the note to Olivia Williams. His run always cracks me up.

    Just thought of another one: The "race" to Wally World at the end of Vacation. With the theme song from Chariot's fire playing.
