Leave it to the British to produce a smart, sophisticated rom-com
23 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the casting on up, the inexplicably-titled "Man Up" brings English charm and sophistication to its unarguably implausible plot. The choice of the very American Lake Bell as the bitter female lead who finds love anyway brings a believability that would have made a less aware actress seem unconvincing. Simon Pegg shows leading romantic man chops we haven't seem previously but his comic timing and vulnerability works for a fundamentally flawed and struggling character. The plot makes no sense especially the moment where Pegg's and Bell's characters breakup before the inescapable finale for seemingly no reason other than it was just that time in the movie where that was supposed to happen. The joke density hovers somewhere near the number that "30 Rock" would pack into a given episode although the references clearly skew toward the 40 year old crowd. In short, a great date night in choice.
