In the age of manscaping, metrosexuals, fancy men's day spas, and high-end grooming products galore, "Mansome" is a witty, provocative and highly-entertaining glimpse into what it means to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster's facial hair in Williamsburg. With his signature humor and insight, Spurlock combs over the follicles of men's idiosyncratic grooming habits, opening up a dialogue about men's unique approach to self image. An expose of comic proportions, "Mansome" follows Will Arnett and Jason Bateman to the spa as they undergo various beautification rituals while offering amusing stories and observations about elusive male bathroom secrets. The film highlights a wide range of men including champion beardsmen, longtime barbershop owners, known metrosexuals, mustachioed males and professional wrestlers; all intercut with candid, one-on-one interviews and commentary from actor/comedians Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Carolla, Judd Apatow, as well as sociological experts and everyday men and women all of whom weigh in on everything from the growing incidence of men turning to plastic surgeons to our obsession with facial hair.
