Storyline

Three modern men try to get in touch with their inner tough guys and redefine what it means to be a real man. Will's grandfather fought in WWII. Will's father fought in Vietnam. Will plays Call of Duty on his PS3 and drinks non-dairy hazelnut creamer. So what happened to all the real men? They're still here, they just smell like pomegranate body wash now. Meet Will. his evolved, sensitive nature is why his awesome wife, Theresa married him. But Will and his friends find themselves wondering, in a world of Axe ads and manscaping, what does it really mean to be a guy anymore? Will is more interested in finding the perfect gift for his son Nathan's 13th birthday than in doing his job selling insurance; sensitive soul Craig still pines for his college ex, Lisa; and Kenny clamps down on his anger and asks himself, "what would Tobey Maguire do?," when his ex, Brenda, starts seeing a guy who is everything he's not and much better looking. After Craig crashes Lisa's wedding to try to win her ... Written by ABC Studios

Good TV show with some great comedy and truth about men
11 November 2011 | by paranoidkarmaSee all my reviews

I started watching this show with my expectations set on low, but Man Up really surprised me. This show is about a group men that talk about their life, Will (Mather Zickel) who is married with Theresa (Teri Polo) have as best friends Kenny (Dan Fogler) who is Theresa brother, and Craig (Christopher Moynihan); to the mix you can add that Kenny ex wife Bridgette (Amanda Detmer) is Theresa best friend and her new boyfriend Grant (Henry Simmons) is introduced to the men group, but when Will, Kenny and Craig are grow up "nerds", Grant is the opposite of them. Every episode has a different subject but you can watch the little "nuances" about late 70's early 80's people, from a lot of Starwars references to gaming syntax.

I think you need to watch this show if you are from 25 to 40 years old.
