Pegg is Perfect.
11 June 2015 | by (East Sussex) – See all my reviews

Man Up - pretty ironic when it's a woman who's asked to. It's also a unique experience, crushing usual romantic-comedy expectations. Nancy (Lake Bell) lacks the courage and ambition to find a partner, so naturally it (or he) falls into her lap when she least expects it. 'Accidentally' taking another woman's blind date was uncharted territory until now. Lake is an all-round compelling watch, dappling in awkwardness as she continues this facade. Pegg is the perfect man alongside Bell; his dialogue rolls off the tongue with apparent ease. He's a far cry from heaven, surpassing Bell and her reserved characteristics. That's not to say she's bad. In fact it's the complete opposite. She's a crack up. Together they're faultless. There are few minor incisions (oddball support character for one), but not enough to damage Man Up's beauty. It goes to show, to some extent, that love can be found over one eventful date.
