Mansome is a 2012 documentary film directed by Morgan Spurlock, best known for his critically acclaimed documentary Super Size Me. The film tackles the topic of male grooming and the evolving definition of masculinity, with Jason Bateman and Will Arnett serving as executive producers and also making appearances throughout the film. The movie begins by pointing out that manscaping, the practice of cleaning up and grooming one's body hair, has become a popular trend among men in recent years. With the rise of celebrity culture and social media, men are under increasing pressure to look good, and many are turning to products and procedures once reserved for women.

Spurlock and his crew travel across the United States, interviewing a diverse range of men who have different opinions on what it means to be "mansome". Some embrace their body hair and consider it a natural part of their masculinity, while others feel it's important to trim and shave in order to look clean and presentable.

Along the way, the film takes a humorous look at some of the more extreme grooming methods men are now using, such as "Brotox" (Botox injections for men), eyebrow threading, and even anal bleaching. The film also features insights from experts in the fields of fashion, beauty, and psychology, who offer their thoughts on the changing face of masculinity and what it means for men today.

One of the film's main themes is the idea that men are no longer content with being seen as slovenly or unkempt. As the film points out, men are now expected to be "providers, protectors, and groomers", and this shift in expectations has had a profound impact on the way men see themselves and each other.

Another interesting aspect of Mansome is its exploration of traditional gender roles and how they are being challenged in today's society. The film talks to several men who reject the traditional "macho" ideals of masculinity, and instead embrace their feminine side by wearing makeup or engaging in other traditionally feminine activities.

Overall, Mansome is an entertaining and enlightening documentary that sheds light on a topic that is often overlooked or seen as frivolous. By exploring the changing landscape of male grooming and masculinity, the film provides a window into the complex and evolving world of modern men.

Mansome is a 2012 documentary with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 35.
