Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Mansome, a documentary by Morgan Spurlock, examines the male urge to primp and groom and how that impacts a guy's "manliness." The movie is more of a comedy than an actual exploration of anything; some experts are interviewed, but many of the other subjects are comedians or people who groom themselves regularly. There's very little nudity, but there is a sexual subtext to the "grooming" theme; men who groom may simply be trying to attract mates and procreate. Some of the strongest words are bleeped out, but "f--k" and "s--t" are both heard, as are references to various body parts. Mansome is somewhat funny, but ultimately it feels fairly lightweight.
A great deal of innuendo, as related to the concept of physical appearance. Males groom themselves, Mansome says, so that they can attract a mate and procreate. Several references to the notion of "attracting" mates for the purpose of sex, as well as references to porn. But there's very little actual nudity aside from a male wrestler's partially exposed buttocks.
Some of the language is bleeped out, but it's fairly obvious what's being said. And other uses of words like "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "ass," "douchebag," "pubes," "balls," "anal," "scrotum," and "gonads," aren't bleeped at all.
In some ways Mansome urges male viewers to simply "be themselves," and reassures them that if they do so, people will appreciate them. The movie seems to make fun of the people who spend a great deal of time grooming themselves but implies that a little grooming is OK.
