Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Man Up is a romcom that mostly takes place over the course of one long, alcohol-soaked afternoon and evening in London. The main characters (played by Simon Pegg and Lake Bell), spend the day flirting, drinking, arguing, drinking, and eventually falling for each other -- over drinks. Expect a lot of swearing (including "s--t," "f--k," and more) and some pretty graphic conversations about sex (including discussion about giving and receiving oral sex), though very little actual physical contact beyond kissing.
- Sexual Content
- Some kissing, and many sexual references, including graphic discussions about sex, sexual positions, giving and receiving oral sex, and more.
- Couples and ex-spouses bicker.
- Frequent swearing in most scenes, including "s--t," "f--k," "d--k," "-a--hole," "tw-t," and more.
- Social Behavior
- Love is out there, even for people who are convinced they'll never meet someone who really appreciates them.
- The main characters have iPhones; brief mention of one character's iTunes account.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A lot of drinking. The main character sometimes drinks alone to ward off loneliness and to steel herself for potentially nerve-wracking activities; when she socializes with a blind date, they spend much of the evening drinking beer and hard liquor (it's surprising that they only seem to get moderately tipsy).
