It just gets too odd for me.
Adam Porter Demshar
Peppered in are some of my favorite entertaining individuals with random commentary, clearly those unfocused moments do not carry this scattered film.

Unfortunately, there are very few documentaries or even books that focus the way in which society views and treats the male.

Not Spurlock's best work. If you want an actual engagement offering perspective upon masculinity and maleness, the existential condition of the western man at the dawn of the 21st century or whateverhaveyou, this is not your film. It's really just a series of somewhat superficial vignettes concerning facial and body hair, and personal grooming. These are interspersed with that sort of spritely wry running ad-libbed commentary you'd expect from Jud Aptow's stable of comedic talent - Aptow himself, Rudd, Galifianakis, Bateman, and company - and this comedic horseplay is really the only reason to see this film. I enjoyed it, but it's thin gruel given what Spurlock could have done with the subject. I was hoping for something like what Chris Rock did with Afro-American hair culture in "Good Hair" - that film is excellent, really fascinating. This by comparison is mediocre, frankly quite disappointing. There's really no especial insight into gender, sexuality or culture here at all, which is what I expected and had hoped would be forthcoming. I've thought some of Spurlock's earlier stuff like "Super Size Me" and "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" to be rather insightful, if gimmicky. This is neither clever in that trademark gimmicky sense, nor especially educational. Still, if Rudd, Galifiankis, Bateman and that crew goofing off for the camera sounds like fun, you might still enjoy this.

[Additional thought, 4/5/13]

I've been mulling this film since last night, and it seems to me that this is the least personal effort that I've seen Spurlock make.

Love body hair and facial hair and watching hairy men who take their hair very seriously? Then, you'll love this movie. The trailer is the best part of the film and does a great job of highlighting the only seconds worth watching. This movie is mostly about facial and body hair. Peppered in are some of my favorite entertaining individuals with random commentary, clearly those unfocused moments do not carry this scattered film. It is not about men in the 21st century, it is not about metrosexuality, it's not about anything really except for some chumps with body hair, one without, and few random stories about them.

A chill documentary regarding male grooming. Spurlock gets to interview a whole spectrum of interesting experts, and it can help provide a perspective of male grooming which is comparable to female beautification and struggles. Overall, an interesting, easy watch.

Great movie. The funniest part was about Fresh Balls. I tried the product and it is awesome.

I would tell everyone to watch the movie and try Fresh Balls.

After watching the trailer and reading the summary I expected this film to be a funny take on how men have evolved into a softer version of their former tough-guy selves. But in the end the entire movie is really focussed on body hair, male body hair to be specific. An hour and 23 minutes of body hair. So, my recommendation would be... If you are really into the male body hair debate, you will like this movie. Otherwise, it's not all that funny and collectively pretty boring.

I just doesn't work. Hard to explain why, but someone else should and easily can do this type of documentary over again.

Morgan Spurlock is so dope. I would totes hang out with him and talk about my beard. Though, I totes shaved my beard off. Maybe I'd talk to him about how annoying it is to use cold shaving cream in the morning on my face. I always wanted one of those cream warmers. Those things are dope.
