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.

No, we still don't believe them as a couple. No, there aren't many surprises here.

While Baruchel is fun to root for and watch flail about like a pipe-cleaner in the wind, this movie encourages a sick desire in me - to see Michael Cera and all the runners-up in the Mr. Puniverse Contest knocked down a peg...

Lots of bro-banter and bodily function goofs smother a good idea

The direction from first-timer Jim Field Smith is bland and without character, and you feel that if someone with more confidence and a swagger to their filmmaking had been in charge we'd have seen something that stepped beyond cinematic mediocrity

...has a few quality moments, and it doesn't default to the angry ugliness of so many fraternity-boy sexual comedies.

The title says it all, and the mismatch of tone parallels the mismatch in the story.

I laughed here and there at She's Out of My League, but I sort of hated everything it had to say about nerds and babes and the sliding scale of self-image.

An uninspired romantic comedy/male self-esteem pep-talk that seems to be yearning for viewer affection despite its all-around mediocrity.

The premise might work if the film were content to be a fairly undistinguished example of over-the-top gross-out comedy.

Like the confused hero standing at the cross-tarmac of his life, this film isn't sure which way's up. Derisive, sophomoric humor or perky rom-com? Underwear jokes or glowing life lessons on personal evolution?

Has a lot of spirit and heart and actually quite sweet, but it tries to shoehorn too many ideas into one movie and not all of them work.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Mildly amusing and charming, but often bland, tedious and not nearly as funny as it could have been with a gutsier and more imaginative screenplay.

You're out of its league.

Though Baruchel does his best to ground the film in some vague semblance of identifiable reality, he's surrounded on all sides by human cartoons, each pushing bad advice or roping him into the next grotesque comic setpiece.

A scenario ripped straight from a screenwriting computer program.

I found some of the Judd Apatow films really funny. This is a pale imitation, not actually in their league at all.

Jay Baruchel, a funny and solid supporting player, is not quite ready for the big leagues with this lackluster rom-com.

There's barely a smirk in all of its padded hour and 45 minutes...
