About the Movie

In the age of manscaping, metrosexuals, and grooming products galore - what does it mean to be a man? Oscar nominee Morgan Spurlock and executive producers Ben Silverman, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman present a delightfully entertaining doc featuring candid interviews from Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and everyday people weighing in on everything from the obsession with facial hair to body dysmorphic disorder. A FilmBuff presentation.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It feels like a bunch of television segments slapped together, with sparing use of Mr. Spurlock himself. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, May 17, 2012

Rotten: Mansome's crowning achievement is its title. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, May 17, 2012

Rotten: There's no real center to the film's potentially insightful topic, with Spurlock never zeroing in on a cohesive message. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, May 18, 2012

Rotten: While making a priority of squeezing in every usable bit of celebrity face-time, Mansome passes by potentially interesting digressions without more than a wayward glance. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, May 15, 2012

Watchable, interesting, but could've been so much better.

An entertaining doc on the ideals of male appearance and the extent some will go for vanity.

Focuses far too heavily on hair grooming (head, face, body) and misses out on other meaty aspects such as:
- body sculpting/modification (e.g. gym rats, implants/cosmetic surgery & treatments)
- clothing ("the suit" vs. "the hipster" vs. "casual", etc.)
- image "accessories" (e.g. cars, cigars, sporting goods, power tools, etc.)
It's disappointing that the doc could've been so much more content-rich, but it is watchable and can spark some fairly good discussion.

Worth the (non-HD) rental price, overall.

Thanks but no thanks

Thats quite enough morgan, you had your 15min already.. now step aside and let the next "one hit wonder" have their turn.
I feel dirty even commenting on this "film"... old morgan is now trying to have credible/popular actors in him "films" to get attention...
enough already.

Such a disappointment

This movie could have been so much more. Several sections were significantly longer than they needed to be....perhaps because at the end of the day the filmmaker needed the filler. Fantastic title....lured me in.....but there is so much happening today that the film should have / could have presented.
