Critic Reviews for She's Out of My League
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for She's Out of My League
One of my favorite comedies of the last few years, "She's out of My League" is also one of the most underrated. Great one liners, great characters, and an oddly believable relationship between Kirk(Jay Baruchel) and Molly(Alice Eve) make for a fantastic comedy. This is one of those movies I can watch over and over. My favorite character is "Stainer." He is basically a cooler version of Napolean Dynamite(at least he looks like him). I mean, he fronts a Hall and Oates cover band, how awesome is that? The formula for this movie is pretty generic, but the execution is awesome and hilarious. It evens ends with one of those cheesy airport chases to find each other, and it's pretty awesome. If you like Judd Apatow comedies like "40 year old Virgin" or "Knocked Up", then this is right up your alley. If you haven't seen it, check it out. If you already have, then watch it again, it gets funnier every time.
Funny at times and was better than I expected. Even if the ending was predictable it was hilarious and watchable. A must see!
I found out this movie is funny and outrageous with a bit of romance as I like the characters.
Jay Baruchel's performance as the quirky geek was right on target, and Alice Eve's portrayal of Molly made her very likable, she's very attractive and sexy. Both actors characterization of the low self-image problem was very believable. Elsewhere in the cast you'll find the previously unknown T.J. Miller as Kirk's best mate Stainer who delivers a handful of memorable one-liners and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.
As is the modern fashion there is a fair amount of bad language, and some concentration on bodily functions (one of which gives rise to one of the funniest sequences in the film). But these are nice people and it's quite a sweet story, and the ruderies fit quite well, so I didn't mind that much.
