Mansome Reviews

May 23, 2012
An amusing if slight look at the grooming, preening and stylistic ways of the 21st century man.

It's more first-person journal and travelogue than it is cultural archaeology, and as such it's basically OK.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

A time-waster that lives down to its title.

The best thing about the movie is that it keeps drawing conclusions in opposite directions.

A frustratingly frothy film that says nothing about its subject.

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.
