Mansome Reviews

Ezra Stead
Bullz-Eye.com

A lighthearted and entertaining, but ultimately inconsequential look at masculine identity as seen through the varied grooming habits of the modern male.

Gerard Raymond
Slant Magazine

The sociological commentary and historical perspectives are superficial at best and the targets often too easy.

The movie purports to be a lighthearted look at changing notions of masculinity and appearance. But unless you find something intrinsically hilarious about a man getting a pedicure, laughs are scarce.

Boston Phoenix

Morgan Spurlock's latest nonthreatening documentary fails to find much point in its subject: men's grooming.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

You get a feeling of haste from this film, as if Spurlock...is onto something, but maybe doesn't have the time or patience to stick with it to widen his approach and find sharper people to sharpen his material.

You'll forget about this one while you're still watching it.

Mansome is a mullet ... neither all-out funny nor seriously thought-provoking. To mangle that famous quote by Gertrude Stein: 'There is no hair there.'

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It does not shed much light on the topic it's nominally interested in.

It feels like a bunch of television segments slapped together, with sparing use of Mr. Spurlock himself.

A shallow, disposal trifle about beards and waxing: the People magazine version of anthropology.

Mansome's crowning achievement is its title.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media

Mansome is arguably [Spurlock's] most insignificant, lightweight effort to date. Never mind that it doesn't provide any answers; it barely even asks a question.

While making a priority of squeezing in every usable bit of celebrity face-time, Mansome passes by potentially interesting digressions without more than a wayward glance.

Morgan Spurlock evidently forgot that he was making a documentary, not a celeb hangout session.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe
Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's a movie so late in noticing a shift in American male grooming that for a documentary on the subject to work, Spurlock would either have to pitch it to our grandparents (or be a grandparent) or trace the arc of the shift and unpack it.

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic IconTop Critic

This complete waste of 82 minutes finds documentarian Morgan Spurlock taking a look at current trends in men's grooming, featuring interviews with a random sampling of people who have no idea what they're talking about - but they're famous.

As documentaries go, this is lip gloss.

There's no real center to the film's potentially insightful topic, with Spurlock never zeroing in on a cohesive message.

Too often the film just feels repetitive or irrelevant.
