It’s more than handsome

 
“What does it mean to be a man in the 21st Century?” Morgan Spurlock, Will Arnett and Jason Bateman look for the answer
 

 
While video clips of film stars sharing baths together are often on our radar for a completely different reason. This has certainly grabbed our attention.
 
Interviewing both the general public and the great and the good of Hollywood, Spurlock, Arnett and Bateman look into the swiftly changing attitudes towards men’s grooming. Cut to various shots of what can only be described as Stachesploitation. The variety of talking heads gives a nice introduction to the small documentary feature, which also features members of ZZ Top, and the founder of a company called Fresh Balls, Inc.
 
John Waters, Isaiah Mustafa (the Old Spice guy *swoon*), Zach Galifanakis, Judd Apatow and Paul Rudd all make cameo appearances in this brief two-minute trailer largely discussing facial hair. Waters is right to note that he “looks like a pervert” something we’ve known for decades and Paul Rudd creates a brand called Aqua Velva. Would you use a product called Aqua Velva? We’re not sure – it could be a stroke of genius.
 
The regular humourous asides are all present and correct, everybody wants to know about Jason Bateman’s Ear Hair right? … Right?
