"She's Out of My League" Review

Stop me if you've seen this one before: A nerdy guy with esteem issues somehow attracts the affections of a super-hot babe, to the disbelief of his slacker pals and her bohunk ex-boyfriend and stodgy parents and her friends. While he's a decent bloke, even he can't believe his good fortune and finds a way to screw everything up, thus forcing everyone to work together to get these crazy kids back together. (Spoiler alert!)

Jay Baruchel (Undeclared, Tropic Thunder) plays the nebbish and Alice Eve (nothing I've seen though she's set to be Emma Frost in the next X-Men movie) plays the supposed hottie - she's like a more pneumatic Reese Witherspoon and I didn't think she was that hot - he's suddenly with and while they're an appealing couple, the rote opposites attract formula machinery really drags what in spots is an inspired bit of lunacy with absolutely hysterical throwaway lines and bits. Written by the duo who penned the somewhat unappreciated Hot Tub Time Machine and the really overlooked Sex Drive, I suspect studio interference for pasteurizing the final product.

While the overall product is only OK, I recommend watching She's Out of My League because when it drops the comic bombs on target, it's a scream. There are several conversation scenes which just go nuts (wait until he hear about and see Stainer's band) and points must be given for pushing the envelope of bad taste in a couple of spots including a ridiculous scenario involving junk shaving that could've been horrific, but ends up a hoot. Krysten Ritter, who plays the snarky friend/business partner of Alice, really caught my eye and I'm going to check her out further.

Score: 5/10. Catch it on cable.
