"Mancation" was actually anything but funny, and I can say that I honestly didn't laugh a single time throughout the entire movie.
I should be said that director Frank Vain is trying to put together a comedy here, but it just failed miserably. The jokes were far between and when they were there, the punchlines were off and the comedy just wasn't there.
The story in "Mancation" is about Vince (played by Matt Kawczynski) who just have gotten married to the boss's daughter. Upon their wedding day he comes home and finds her in bed with the bridesmaid; it turns out that she is a lesbian, and has been so all throughout their relationship. Together with his brother Leo (played by Stephen Medvidick) and his two friends Brady (played by Joey Fatone) and Adam (played by Jake Matthews), Vince travels to Atlantic City to meet up with his high school sweetheart.
Right, storywise, then "Mancation" did have potential, just a shame that the storyline wasn't fully brought to justice given the bad jokes and lack of comedy throughout the entire movie. It should be said that the people cast for the various roles were actually doing good enough jobs, it was just the script that was working against them.
The only memorable scene in the entire movie is the controversy stand-off between Adam and Igor (played by Derek Lindeman). It wasn't actually funny, but it was so bizarre and disturbing that it stood out in an otherwise stale and irrelevant movie.
If you are looking for comedy, then your money would be better spent on something else. There really isn't much to come here for, truth be told.
