Man Up!: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Man Up!: Season 1 (2011)



Critic Consensus: An uninspired battle-of-the-sexes sitcom, Man Up! is boorish, predictable, and largely bereft of laughs.

Tv Season Info

ABC's situation comedy "Man-Up!" follows the adventures of three male buddies in their late 30s and early 40s - Craig Griffith (Christopher Moynihan), Grant (Henry Simmons) and Will Keen (Mather Zickel). Suffering from a shared bout of arrested adolescence, they collectively decide that it's high time to lose their youthful indiscretions and act like grown men. Invariably, this leads to a host of humorous complications. Their adventures include Will's attempts to find the ideal birthday gift for his 13-year-old son, a battle of wills between roommates Will and Craig, Will's decision to teach his young daughter adult responsibility by having her raise a baby chick, and the men's joint efforts to buy an elusive video game by camping together outside of a department store.

Neither (Man Up! or Last Man Standing) cuts the spicy beer mustard.

No show in the history of television has more relentlessly defamed the male gender as ABC's Man Up!

The setup could be mildly amusing if it weren't more common than Starbucks.

The whole enterprise seems way too wobbly to walk upright under its own power.

It tends to be more noise than wit.

It wants to be The Hangover, but it's more like the short-lived Carpool.
