Storyline

Three modern men try to get in touch with their inner tough guys and redefine what it means to be a real man. Will's grandfather fought in WWII. Will's father fought in Vietnam. Will plays Call of Duty on his PS3 and drinks non-dairy hazelnut creamer. So what happened to all the real men? They're still here, they just smell like pomegranate body wash now. Meet Will. his evolved, sensitive nature is why his awesome wife, Theresa married him. But Will and his friends find themselves wondering, in a world of Axe ads and manscaping, what does it really mean to be a guy anymore? Will is more interested in finding the perfect gift for his son Nathan's 13th birthday than in doing his job selling insurance; sensitive soul Craig still pines for his college ex, Lisa; and Kenny clamps down on his anger and asks himself, "what would Tobey Maguire do?," when his ex, Brenda, starts seeing a guy who is everything he's not and much better looking. After Craig crashes Lisa's wedding to try to win her ... Written by ABC Studios

A slice of awesome
2 December 2011 | by brandonsullivan91See all my reviews

Man Up is funny! It doesn't insult you with canned studio audience laughter. It provides fresh characters with depth and emotions. No cardboard cutouts spitting out punch lines, instead there is creative banter, which I suspect much of it is improvisation.

Fast moving plots keep boredom far away and the laughter rolling. This has moved up into the ranks of "The Office" for me. I really really enjoy this show and I hope ABC doesn't cancel it.

I am trying to figure out why it is only a 6 so far on the user ratings??? It is silly, but it is very witty. If you haven't watched it I would recommend giving it a shot!
