She’s Out Of My League

July 8, 2010

This movie kind of came out of nowhere. Somehow, it hit theaters, went through its run, and came out on DVD without me ever knowing it even existed. Jay Baruchel’s star seems to be rising (as are most Judd Apatow affiliates), and he might even go blockbuster with this summer’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (it looks better than it sounds). That said, I’m not surprised to see him starring in a solid comedy. This movie isn’t hilarious by any means, but it certainly had its moments and was more enjoyable than I was expecting, considering a large lack of word-of-mouth.

“Oh fuck it, are you really not wearing any underwear….? Deb, we’re all thinking it.” This movie has some quotables in it for sure. The performances were decent for the most part. Something about Krysten Ritter (Jessie’s drug-addicted girlfriend on Breaking Bad) really does it for me. I think I love her. I’m not sure that Alice Eve is a “hard ten,” but I’ll give her a “strong eight.” Of course this movie has to have some sort of conflict, so Baruchel’s character has to go through the unbelievable arc of blowing it with his hot girlfriend. Let’s be real, if any of us sub-standard human beings landed a ten, nothing in our brain is going to convince us that we are not worthy of her. If anything, we’d have concerns about her cheating, but never would I consider myself unworthy.

I liked the movie. It’s good for what it is, but it’s not going to make a home in my DVD collection like some of the better comedies of the past few years. I’d recommend it… you probably won’t be disappointed, but if you decide to pass, it’s not the end of the world either.

Grade: C+

Viewings: 1

Replay Value: 1-2 viewings

Nudity Alert: None. How does an R-rated comedy featuring hot women not have any naked chicks? It’s a fair question, and with some nekkid ladies, this movie probably would jump to a B-
