Brief film reviews: She’s Out of My League

Short film review I wrote.
Published in the Independent Weekly Mar. 10, 2010 issue.

SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE—Can a smokin’ hot 10 ever be with a mediocre five? That’s the question the puny Pittsburgh protagonist of She’s Out Of My League sets out to answer. After meeting babe Molly (Alice Eve) at the airport security checkpoint, TSA agent and super-geek Kirk (Jay Baruchel) can’t believe his good fortune when he finds out that she might actually be into him. Fueled by his friends’ insistence that there’s no way a girl that hot could ever go for a “moodle” (man poodle) like him, he begins to sabotage the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Out of My League is reminiscent in the best ways of other recent good-hearted gross-out comedies like The 40-Year Old Virgin, and Baruchel manages to be likeable, charming and uncool at the same time. Rated R. —BD
