Man Up

A won­der­ful home­grown rom­com

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Spin­ning out its screw­ball premise with dex­ter­ity and wit, this hugely en­gag­ing Bri­tish rom­com is a win­ner. From the mo­ment Si­mon Pegg’s emo­tion­ally bruised di­vorcee mis­takes Lake Bell’s snarky cynic for his blind date, the film bar­rels along with a mo­men­tum that’s ex­hil­a­rat­ing. But no mat­ter how zany the ac­tion gets, Bell and Pegg en­sure their char­ac­ters re­main both cred­i­ble and like­able. Their chem­istry is sen­sa­tional, too.
