Comedy, Female Screenwriter(s)
Perpetually single Nancy (Lake Bell) has given up on ever finding Mr. Right. When a mix-up involving a fad self-help book leads to Jack (Simon Pegg)—a charming stranger—falsely identifying her as his blind date, Nancy lets her guard down to see where this unexpected opportunity takes her. At first Jack seems like he might be The One, but soon both parties realize there might be more to the other than they first let on. Ben Palmer's hilarious romantic comedy is a farcical romp that takes its two mismatched lovebirds all over London in a series of escalating misadventures. Perfectly cast with the always funny Lake Bell and Simon Pegg as its central odd couple, Man Up is a delightful tale of mistaken identity and true love for anyone who's ever pretended to be someone they’re not on a first date.—Cara Cusumano
