Plot Outline:

At 34-years-old, Nancy is single and trying to push herself out into the world. Unfortunately, her untimely pushing puts her into the arms of Jack, a 40-year-old man who mistakes her for his blind date. Instead of telling Jack he's mistaken, Nancy decides to say she is the woman he's been waiting for. The date starts great but takes a turn for the worst as her charade begins to unravel.

I was reluctant to watch Man Up. I'm not a fan of romantic comedies so I didn't want to watch this even with Simon Pegg starring in it. I prejudged the film. Not only was Man Up hilarious and charming, but Jack and Nancy were delightful. Pegg and Lake Bell did a phenomenal jobs portraying them. The supporting cast was just as wonderful, with fairly well-rounded characters shining through the highs and lows of the Jack and Nancy affair. There are a few problems though. The story only takes place through out of the course of a day, making the emotions seem rushed and manufactured. Plus the main antagonist was poorly and unrealistically handled. With those flaws, I can't love Man Up. It was still a fun romcom good for a casual movie night.

Man Up wirft uns so ziemlich alle Klischees der Romantic Comedy vor die Füsse: Das niedliche Kennenlernen, die bekloppten Freunde, die besoffenen Dates oder die falsche Identität... Sogar das öffentliche Bekennen der romantischen Gefühle - Vergleiche mit anderen Standarts des Genres sind nicht nur passend, sie sind unausweichlich... mehr auf cinegeek.de
