If you are looking for comedy on the big screen this weekend then look out for Man Up as Simon Pegg teams up with Lake Bell.

Man Up

Man Up will see Pegg and Bell join forces for the first time as they return to the comedy genre to tackle a rom/com with a bit of a twist.

Man Up has hit the big screen today and we have a couple of great new clips to whet your appetite:

We haven't seen Ben Palmer in the director's chair since the huge success of The Inbetweeners Movie back in 2011 - but he is back at the helm having spent the last couple of year focusing on television projects.

And the director has assembled a great cast as Pegg and Bell are joined by Ophelia Lovibond, Olivia Williams, Rory Kinnear, Dean-Charles Chapman, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Ken Stott, and Stephen Campbell Moore.

Meet Nancy (Bell): 34, single (still), hung-over (again), and exhausted by the endless futile set ups foisted upon her by well-meaning but clueless friends. As she travels across London to toast another 10 years of her parent's blissfully happy marriage, 40 year old, freshly-hatched divorcee Jack (Pegg) mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date.

In a moment of uncharacteristic optimism (or insanity?), Nancy decides to just go with it... What follows is a chaotic, unconventional, hilarious night neither of them will ever forget. There will be drinking, there will be home truths; there will be an old classmate with a long-standing crush and stalker tendencies.

There will be lost divorce papers, lost hopes, competitive indoor sports and an epic venue-to-venue urban triathlon. Oh, and the small matter of Jack finding out that Nancy isn't actually his real blind date. Man Up is a romantic comedy about being yourself... or perhaps not being yourself. It's about taking chances, making decisions, and rolling with the consequences.

So, if you want a bit of a change from all of the blockbusters that have littered the big screen in recent weeks, then Man Up could well be the movie for you.

Man Up is a funny and heartfelt comedy that is packed with intelligence and wit. If you are a fan of Bell then this is not to be missed as the actress is on top form.

Man Up is out now.
