Although he’s recently been dropping hints about directing his first fictional feature, which he describes as being “very Erin Brockovich-ish”, director Morgan Spurlock also has another documentary coming out this year as well. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this past weekend, Mansome explores the amusing world of male grooming in a broad comedic way like only Morgan Spurlock can. The first trailer has now hit the web, and well… it looks like a Morgan Spurlock documentary.
The movie is produced by Will Arnett and Jason Bateman, and strangely enough, they both figure quite prominently in the trailer. Other notable celebrity talking heads include Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Carolla and Judd Apatow. It kind of reminds me of Chris Rock’s Good Hair and another documentary I saw a few years back called American Mullet. I’m sure it will be moderately amusing, but let’s face it… there isn’t anything deep going on here at all. Mansome does not have a theatrical release date as of yet; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
