Man Up

Rated R 88 minutes 2015

What if you wound up with the wrong person on a blind date? Ben Palmer's mistaken-identity rom-com might sound like a lost plotline from Love Actually, but stars Simon Pegg and Lake Bell transcend the tired material with their rich interplay. Their characters spend too much time pretending not to like each other, and their caustic banter is weighed down by myriad genre clich├ęs (nosy family members, corny power ballads, public declarations of love). Yet there's a surprising honesty in their one-on-one conversations about the perils of dating, the illusion of romance, and the trappings (and traps) of commitment.
