Man Up 15 rating

Simon Pegg’s date is hijacked by Lake Bell in this effervescent urban comedy, a fresh twist on the British rom-com.

Romance 2014 88 mins

Director: Ben Palmer

Overview

Simon Pegg plays Jack, a recent divorcee whose blind date is hijacked by jaded singleton Nancy (Lake Bell). When Nancy makes no effort to correct him, a surprisingly successful date night ensues, until it’s time for her to fess up...

With its focus on a mid-thirties female lead, effective use of London locations, and dynamic one-night structure, Man Up is a true breath of fresh air for the modern romance. Tess Morris’ sparkling script balances the tone perfectly, steering away from both hipster irony and classical rom-com cliché, and Lake Bell is nothing short of a revelation.
