It’ll probably be sometime next year before we see the Bluth clan back together; when Arrested Development finally hits Netflix. In the meantime you can catch Will Arnett and Jason Bateman enjoying a nice spa date together in Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary “Mansome”.
In the documentary, Spurlock tries to answer that age old question of what makes a man a man. He delves into daily grooming habits, male mani-pedis, beauty products, and various other things that make men “Mansome”. The film has some great comedic people featured in it including Paul Rudd, Judd Apatow, Zach Galifianakis, Isaiah Mustafa (Old Spice Guy), and Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, of course. If your interest has been piqued, you’ll find the “Mansome”trailer below followed the the films official synopsis. Enjoy.
Wild chops, muttons, and handlebars are not just gamey cuts of meat or motorcycle accessories anymore. They are terms in a manscaping lexicon that celebrate hairy achievements in an age when guys seem to care more about trimming their chin curtains and waxing their backs than growing chest hair. With today’s men getting just as many spa treatments as women, and with a slew of new products aiming to freshen and sculpt all manly parts, does all this newfound grooming influence the age-old question of what it means to be a man, or have dudes just finally succumbed to human hygiene?
Oscar nominee Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) and executive producers Ben Silverman, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman present a delightfully entertaining documentary exploring the current state of mandom in America and beyond. Traveling to traditional barbershops and trend-savvy salons across the country and attending an international beard contest in Austria, Spurlock shows us the art of being a man is taken to new hilarious levels. Complete with candid interviews from Arnett, Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and lots of everyday people, Spurlock sets out to uncover the true secrets of being “mansome.”
“Mansome” is set to debut during the Tribeca Film Festival and will begin popping up in various cities on May 18th.
