Definition of mansome

Mansome movie scenes

The term mansome is a neologism in popular culture. The documentary Mansome attempts to clarify exactly what makes a man "mansome".

To groom or not to groom

Mansome movie scenes

The film follows three men (in addition to Spurlock), each with completely different opinions on facial hair and the act of grooming.

  • Jack Passion is viewed by some as America's greatest beardsman, and is the only American to ever win first place at the German Beard and Moustache Championships. He is also a multiple world champion in the “Natural Full Beard” category. In Mansome, Passion expresses his belief that a man's natural state is to be bearded, and therefore should be embraced. He even goes so far as to say that those who are clean-shaven are stuck in perpetual boyhood.
  • In contrast, Ricky Manchanda is a fashion buyer who believes that proper grooming includes being clean-shaven and perfect. He gets his eyebrows threaded, is a proponent for moisturizing to avoid dry skin and wrinkles, and takes approximately an hour and a half to get ready in the morning.
  • Shawn Daivari, a pro wrestler, portrays the extreme grooming requirements imposed by his profession.
  • Reception

    On the review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 25% "Rotten" rating, with an average rating of 4.7 out of 10. On Metacritic, the film received a metascore of 35 out of 100. The staff of The A.V. Club named it one of the worst movies of 2012, criticizing it as "absolutely insufferable, a shabby excuse for a documentary that sadistically stretches to feature length a premise that would barely support a two-minute short."

    The Chicago Sun-Times reviewer Richard Roeper gave the film three stars, calling it "a typically whimsical documentary". He noted that "There’s a certain late-to-the-party aspect to “Mansome,” as if Spurlock has just discovered the metrosexual trend of what, 15 years ago?".
