A 34 year old single woman, Nancy, hung-over again, exhausted by the endless fruitless set ups by her friends, traveling up to London to toast another 10 years of her parent's successful happy magical marriage runs in with a 40 year old divorcee, Jack, who mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date. Nancy, deciding to go with it, happens to hop on the most chaotic yet hilarious journey of her life which neither of them will ever forget. There is drinking, truths, an old stalker class mate with a long standing crush, lost divorce papers, lost hopes, competitive indoor sports and yeah Jack finding out the truth that Nancy isn't his blind date. 'Man Up' a romantic comedy about taking chances, finding about being yourself, making decisions and rolling with the consequences.Written by
When Jack and Nancy are walking along the South Bank, there are several non-contiguous shots of the Foyles book store and the stairs behind them, giving the appearance that they're not making any progress on their walk. See more »
I've got a confession to make. I'm not really your blind date, Jack.
What? Are you even 24?
No! Add an other 10. I was just merely trying to meet my mate in the modern world.

Quite a lovely one
My advice? Watch it? nd don't watch the trailer, there is no need
I wasn't expecting a typical American comedy, since I usually appreciate Simon Pegg's work. But I wasn't expecting to enjoy it this much. It seemed to me like a romantic movie but realistic in many ways - Including the fact that the actors are not typically young and gorgeous from every angle - They are beautiful yes, in their own authentic way, much like their characters I think.
And of course it's a cliché film in many ways, but still made me smile and laugh out loud many times. I will recommend to my friends who appreciate quality cinema. It's one of the good ones!
