RogerEbert.com — Man Up

Man Up Movie Review“Man Up” is a pretty standard romantic comedy on paper, featuring all the tropes of the genre: the meet-cute, the wacky friends, the spontaneous dance routine, etc. But the charismatic Lake Bell and Simon Pegg have such sparkling chemistry, they make this predictable trip worthwhile.

    Cute. Cute. Cute flick. Thanks for the review, otherwise I’d have completely missed this one.

    Simon Pegg impressed me in Run, Fatboy, Run. So cute.
    Lake Bell got my attention in In A World. So talented.
    Together in Man Up, they utterly delighted and entertained me.

    Rented DIRECTV PPV. Will be watching again tomorrow with hubby. The banter was so fast and furious in some places I missed some of the dialog. I’m sure, once again, I’ll be grinning from ear to ear and heartily laughing.
