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.

Tends to be off-putting, which is a shame, because it's on to something about the dynamic between put-together women and the legions of nervous men who shoot themselves in the feet while longing for them. [Blu-ray]

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

A scenario ripped straight from a screenwriting computer program.

...largely silly, if well meaning, inoffensive but predictable, unoriginal, and bland.

Hops along no more than hopefully towards its inevitable conclusion that losers sometimes win.

Formulaic and inoffensively bland.

Here is yet another American comedy in which a beautiful woman falls head over high heels in love with a worthless geek.

Like its hero, it has hidden depths -- it's just a shame they're not allowed to shine.

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

... inoffensive but strictly routine ...

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

has neither the comedy nor the romance nor the insight to deepen its central gimmick

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

Directed by Englishman Jim Field Smith and scripted by Sean Anders and John Morris of the upcoming "Hot Tub Time Machine," "She's Out of My League" stays afloat for its first hour thanks to the comic water-treading talent of its cast.

Every time I thought it was developing a comic pace, it would stumble, most notably in a few extended, ridiculous gross-out scenes late in the film.

It's got a stale premise, dumb jokes, [and] characters who exist only to remind you of other characters in slightly better movies.

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?

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.
