One of the best laugh til you cry comedies of the last decade.

What a pleasant surprise this movie is ...
| Original Score: B+
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.
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
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.
A charming romantic comedy that lets Mr. Wrong win at love for a refreshing change of pace.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
manages to strike a workable balance between the crass and the poignant, even if it sells some of its characters a bit short
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A totally acceptable, completely forgettable romcom that will make you laugh a fair few times, before floating harmlessly out of your life.
Jay Baruchel gets his shot at Hollywood leading-man status in this likable, goofy romcom. And I have to say I'd rather be watching him than the ubiquitous Shia LaBeouf.
It's not half as bad as it sounds thanks to the likable, grounding presence of Baruchel, plus Nate Torrence as his chubby pal.
Eve sparkles, Baruchel amuses and the film as a whole is irresistible.
| Original Score: 3/5
She's Out Of My League is a predictable yet hugely enjoyable genre piece that relies on our natural empathy for Baruchel's nice guy...
With his debut feature, English director Jim Field Smith handles the humour with skill. A solid if formulaic addition to the genre.
This is the rare one with unisex appeal - it's sweet and it's raunchy, and it has an underdog male lead of huge oddball charisma in Jay Baruchel.
A funny and charming romcom.
| Original Score: 4/5
Fast, frequently funny and isn't a chore to watch. Measured on its own dating scale, She's Out Of My League is a solid six with room to climb higher.
The gross-out level is kept to a minimum and the language is reasonably clean, making it a refreshing change from similar testosterone-fueled movies.
For all its rude humour and chucklehead antics, this is actually a sweet and shy romantic comedy. It also boosts Jay Baruchel into leading-man status with a thoroughly charming performance.
