An amusing if slight look at the grooming, preening and stylistic ways of the 21st century man.
Richard Roeper, Richard  full review
It's more first-person journal and travelogue than it is cultural archaeology, and as such it's basically OK.
Andrew O'Hehir,  full review
There's no real center to the film's potentially insightful topic, with Spurlock never zeroing in on a cohesive message.
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times  full review
As documentaries go, this is lip gloss.
Tom Long, Detroit News  full review
The movie purports to be a lighthearted look at changing notions of masculinity and appearance. But unless you find something intrinsically hilarious about a man getting a pedicure, laughs are scarce.
Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post  full review
This complete waste of 82 minutes finds documentarian Morgan Spurlock taking a look at current trends in men's grooming, featuring interviews with a random sampling of people who have no idea what they're talking about - but they're famous.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
Mansome's crowning achievement is its title.
Claudia Puig, USA Today  full review
It feels like a bunch of television segments slapped together, with sparing use of Mr. Spurlock himself.
Nicolas Rapold, New York Times  full review
It's a movie so late in noticing a shift in American male grooming that for a documentary on the subject to work, Spurlock would either have to pitch it to our grandparents (or be a grandparent) or trace the arc of the shift and unpack it.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
A skin-deep look at the state of contemporary masculinity.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
The best thing about the movie is that it keeps drawing conclusions in opposite directions.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
While making a priority of squeezing in every usable bit of celebrity face-time, Mansome passes by potentially interesting digressions without more than a wayward glance.
