She's Out of My League
An airport security guard gets involved with a girl who's very obviously of a higher caliber than himself, and schemes to make the relationship last as his friends and family watch along in disbelief. Kirk (Jay Baruchel) was languishing in a dead-end job as an airport security agent when he somehow managed to earn the affections of the successful and drop-dead gorgeous Molly (Alice Eve). Even Kirk isn't exactly sure what Molly sees in him, though he's willing to do whatever it takes to make the relationship work. With his friends, family, and ex-girlfriend all watching stunned from… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like its hero, it has hidden depths -- it's just a shame they're not allowed to shine."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"There are compensations, in Baruchel's performance and in Eve's too (now that's an ingenue's name)."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"One of the best laugh til you cry comedies of the last decade."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"It's not insightful or original about anything more than a generic self-esteem boost for goony dudes who dream of hot babes, but it's never not doing cartwheels to make you laugh."
‑ Dave White,
"She's Out of My League is not big on originality, yet it scores points for addressing self esteem and body image issues amongst young males."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"It's got a stale premise, dumb jokes, [and] characters who exist only to remind you of other characters in slightly better movies."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"The premise might work if the film were content to be a fairly undistinguished example of over-the-top gross-out comedy."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Writers need to start shaking things up a bit. Have the couple split up for actual reasons. Allow them to see other people or go in a whole new direction. This ending has been done. This whole film has been done. The plot is tired. Let it rest."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The story relies on the strength of the characters and effectiveness of the comedy to keep it going. And for the most part it works."
‑ Katina Vangopoulos, Moviedex
"Tends to be off-putting, which is a shame, because it's on to something about the dynamic between put-together women and the legions of nervous men who shoot themselves in the feet while longing for them. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Nothing would work, though, without the appealing Baruchel."
‑ Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"She's Out of My League doesn't answer the question of whether a 10 would go for a 5, but rather if audiences are willing to settle for a 5."
‑ Adam Graham, Detroit News
"What a pleasant surprise this movie is ..."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"She's Out Of My League might be the most important romantic comedy of the past twenty five years. If only it was funny enough to warrant such an accolade."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"...has a few quality moments, and it doesn't default to the angry ugliness of so many fraternity-boy sexual comedies."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
