There's nothing new here, but that's okay. Man Up is an unchallenging yet refreshingly nice and funny piece of cinema.

A top-notch romantic comedy...

Man Up is a classic romantic comedy about two people who are too old, too wise, too jaded for classic romantic comedies, and that's precisely why it works.

Pegg and Bell click, and that's enough to carry the picture.

So many modern romantic comedies are the equivalent of a date that pukes on your shoes and steals your wallet; at least Man Up wants to be friends.

Genuinely appealing.

For all the rom-com conventions of the film (and there many...), it has a low-key charm and an adult take on expectations, disappointments, and missed opportunities...

It's all very gener ic and predictable, but not in an entirely bad way. Man Up has its charms and it'll raise a smile, perhaps even a chuckle or two, if you're looking for a no-frills romcom.

[Man Up] benefits largely from the hilarious dynamic between Pegg and Bell, and the humor alone is strong enough to recommend the film.

[Lake Bell and Simon Pegg] make for an amiable pairing in a hugely enjoyable and fast-paced comedy.

Both actors stay sharp through some pretty degrading moments, and if Palmer and screenwriter Tess Morris are bent on serious button-pushing in the closing scenes, at least they garnish it with playfulness and wit.
November 19, 2015
Man Up has a couple of bits that don't quite work and the ending is just silly, but for the most part, Pegg and Bell carry this thing through sheer force of personality.
November 19, 2015
Aside from the silly title and disappointingly pat ending, even the rom-com-averse will find something to love about Man Up.
November 19, 2015
Bell and Pegg, both terrific comic actors, mine small gestures and reactions for laughs. But they're at their best when they're talking, and they talk a lot in "Man Up."
November 18, 2015
It's definitely not Pegg's finest professional hour, but as fizzy romantic comedies go, "Man Up" has its share of surprises and enthusiasm for the material.
November 18, 2015
I'm a sucker for movies where smart people fall in love. Smart, well-written people, anyway. And about 60 per cent of Man Up is that sort of movie. This is enough.
November 14, 2015
MAN UP is that rare romance fueled comedy that will ably entertain both men and women.
November 13, 2015
Even though you know how things will turn out, it's amusing along the way.
November 13, 2015
Larkish and nicely confident Brit romantic comedy, enlivened by sparkling performances and a tangy, quite original and observant script.
November 13, 2015
There are enough twists, turns and strange little bumps in the road to make this well-traveled journey to romantic comedy bliss surprisingly worthwhile.
