A problem with many romantic comedies these days is that the emphasis on the romance is ramped up so much that the comedy almost always falls flat.With Man Up these people ultimately want different things and the romance element feels less in your face meaning the comedy gets a chance to develop.She is in her mid thirties and attempting to find love.
You can see that their hearts are both invested into their respective roles and the chemistry between them is on point and makes us root for their relationship to grow and work out.
You want Nancy to be the girl that Jack was hoping for and you don't want him to be with this other girl because you feel the emotions of both characters.
if not only British Rom-Com of 2015 so far and was a lot better than i expected it would be.
Check this out if you're British because i am certain many of you can relate to the characters in some way or another.
There are scenes in this film which are genuinely so funny and had me laughing out loud which i don't find a lot these days with rom-coms.
This is mostly due to, again,the chemistry between the lead characters.
Following that trend is directed by Ben Palmer who proves to be quite the competition to Curtis with a film the trailer makes us feel we've seen before, in fact i saw this simply because i happen to love Simon Pegg, but proves to be a surprisingly original film.
Man Up follows Nancy played by Lake Bell who is a bit down on her luck when it comes to men to say the least.
Went to this movie a little leery because of the reviews and because I haven't loved all of Adam Sandler's movies.
