Bowled Over: The Big Man Up Date Night


eHarmony helps launch Man Up on DVD and Blu ray with a unique date night event – and we’ve got DVDs to give away to some lucky rom com fans.

Here at eHarmony UK we couldn’t love anything more than curling up on an autumn evening with a good romantic comedy. That’s why we teamed up with Studiocanal to celebrate the release of romantic comedy Man Up on DVD & Blu-Ray starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell with a special launch event in London on the 2nd October.

A first date worthy of a rom com

The film features singletons Nancy (played by Lake Bell) and recent divorcee Jack (Simon Pegg) who find themselves on the wrong blind date with each other. However, the unconventional and chaotic date night ends up turning into something neither of them thought would happen.

To bring to life that first date magic, we recreated the date from the film with bowling, drinks, a photobooth and ice-breaker games.

We even invited some of our eHarmony members who brought along their compatible matches to the date night event. With a first date worthy of a rom com we hope they’ll be starting their own love stories soon!
