    Morgan Spurlock, el director del divertido documental "Super Size Me", nos entrega una divertida aproximación a lo que significa ser hombre en el nuevo milenio. "Mansome" habla sobre bigotes, pelos y acicalamiento sin mucha profundidad, pero con mucho humor y se vale del carisma de actores como Paul Rudd, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett y Zack Galifianakis para vehiculizar sus temas.

    Although the male grooming topic is potentially intriguing (including mustache obsessions, metrosexuals, and competitive beard growing), there is no real focus through the divergent subtopics. Told with humor and a bit of satirized machismo, the documentary is lighthearted and does not offer any significant insight into deeper issues such as male insecurities with body image or cultural pressures on the modern American man. It's pure fluff: light, pleasant and unmemorable. As a "documentary", it's flimsy and undeserving.

    Seriously, Watch It Just To See The Insightful Look At The "Fresh Balls" Product Line Focus Group Testing. It Is Laugh Out Loud Hilarious. The Vox-Pop Comments From Paul Rudd, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett & Zac Galifianakis Are Also Added Par For The Course On This Tongue-In-Check Look Into Manhood. The Modern Man Is Definitely At A Cross-Roads These Days..Where Does One Go To Be Manly These Days? Hair Is Out..But In Some Places, It's Also In!?? It's All Too Confusing..I Give Up.

    A light-hearted documentary from Morgan Spurlock about the modern (essentially straight) man's grooming habits. It is split up into chapters (moustache, beard, body, head etc) which are punctuated by skits between Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman (also producers of the film). It kind of skims over the potentially interesting subject of the analysis of metrosexuality. The skits are uber unfunny and only some of the talking heads are interesting. Don't waste your time.

    With little insight into the perplexingly successful Hollywood career of Jason Bateman, "Mansome" is a superficial documentary about how shallow society has become while giving little thought to the cost, except in pricing haircuts. But according to Morgan Spurlock, that's a very good thing, as how else are you supposed to find a mate if you are not looking your very best, according to men's magazines.(Note: I read the New Yorker.) But if all you are going by is looks, then what kind of person will you end up with? Maybe somebody who will shave your back but not somebody who will have it. This is also in a country where we are constantly informed that we are either too skinny or too fat. That's not to mention its long vicious history of racism that continues to inform all sorts of beauty standards even today. And then the movie celebrates the Sikh subject's turning his back on his tradition without worrying about any kind of downside.
