She’s Out Of My League (2010)
A typical storyline, boy meets girl, loses girl and you know the rest. She’s Out Of My League is a quirky comedy about the average Joe who meets a girl he’d never dream to have a chance with. The humour is definitely directed toward men though I found myself laughing out loud at parts. The plot is just like all the other movies about the good guy that hot girls don’t usually go for coming out on top.
In all honesty Jay Baruchel as the lead character Kirk kept me interested. He was very believable in this role and had everyone rooting for him. As for the rest of the cast I can’t say they were too impressive. Outside of Kirk’s group of weird guy friends, the characters were pretty shallow and only good for a few one-liners.
In the beginning it’s obvious that Kirk is heartbroken over his ex-girlfriend Marnie (Lindsay Sloane). He comes up with a plan to get her back and unexpectedly meets and helps out the beautiful event planner Molly (Alice Eve) when she loses her iPhone at the airport. It is through this accidental run-in that Molly sets up a dinner date to thank the airport worker for returning her iPhone.
From here the whirlwind relationship begins. Every day is a struggle for Kirk as he tries to understand why Molly is interested in him at all. The negativity from his friends and family is no help, and neither are the frequent run-ins with Molly’s “hot” exes. For anyone who enjoys “guy humour” comedies this is perfect. She’s Out Of My League is a light and fluffy story about believing in yourself and finding your own happiness.
