OK premise, bad movie
4 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Man Up is a decent premise for a movie - basically a slacker takes a year off so he and his girlfriend can be in the same classes in college (though he pretty obviously does not have any plans to ever actually go to college, which infuriates his mother and rest of his family), then she drops the bomb that she is pregnant. He gets kicked out of the house, she dumps him and moves away until the baby is ready to be born, and he has to move in with his best friend Randall and "man up" to try to win her back.

The story isn't awful but the acting of the two leads is pretty bad. At times it feels a bit painful. Also the writing is not very good with some really obvious plot holes and bad jokes, such as "my neighbors have a baby and it is so annoying, it cries like a baby!"

I made myself finish watching it because I almost never bail on a movie before it's finished, but I kind of wish I hadn't. Thought it would get better at some point but it really didn't.
