Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It feels like a bunch of television segments slapped together, with sparing use of Mr. Spurlock himself.
Rotten: Mansome's crowning achievement is its title.
Rotten: There's no real center to the film's potentially insightful topic, with Spurlock never zeroing in on a cohesive message.
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.
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...
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.
