Trailer for Morgan Spurlock’s Mansome Features Plenty of Beards

What makes a man? That is the age-old question. Is it the facial hair? The way he presents himself? Maybe it’s the voice. Well, Morgan Spurlock is back with his latest documentary about male grooming awesomely titled Mansome.

A recent trailer as emerged on the Internet shedding some light on the movie, and I have to say, it looks pretty good. The documentary interviews numerous big names from Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Judd Apatow, Adam Carolla and is produced by Jason Bateman and Will Arnett.

It surely looks funny, interesting, and just an all around good time. I have only seen Super Size Me from Spurlock’s documentaries, but I have never really thought negatively about the looks of his other works. They all look like they could be just as entertaining as the next. Plus, with a line up of funny men that I named before, it just makes it all the better.

The beards help too.


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.”
