When he starts dating drop-dead gorgeous Molly, insecure airport security agent Kirk can't believe it. As his friends and family share their doubts about the relationship lasting, Kirk does everything he can to avoid losing Molly forever.
***A really good romcom marred by profane crudeness*** A TSA worker at the Pittsburgh Airport (Jay Baruchel) starts a relationship with a woman many consider to be a perfect 10 (Alice Eve), which surprises his friends and family. Can the relationship survive their pestering? "She’s Out of My League" (2010) is a surprisingly well-written, well-casted romcom that’s entertaining throughout, but it’s ruined for me by a little too much gross or profane (non)humor and I can’t in good conscience give it a higher grade. This is unfortunate because the flick didn’t need to stoop to that low-level. But if you can stomach the needlessly gross bodily fluid & raunchy ‘humor’ of “There’s Something about Mary” (1998), “The Girl Next Door” (2004) and “Forgetting Sarah Marshal” (2008) you might like it more than me. The film runs 1 hour, 44 minutes, and was shot in the Pittsburgh area. GRADE: C
I enjoyed She’s Out of My League; let me get that out there at the outset. It is witty, mostly intelligent, and downright hilarious in places. Mind you, there were a few places that made me shake my head. There was some old fashioned gross-out humor, the sort I thought stopped being used in romantic comedies years ago. I particularly didn’t like the semen stain interlude, though I admit that Kirk’s friend’s advice later on how to explain it to Molly nearly saved it completely for me. I also thought that having every male within twenty yards of Molly being paralyzed and struck dumb by her beauty was a bit overdone, but I am willing to overlook small issues if the movie is intelligent enough otherwise. I liked most of the characters, especially Marnie, who says the stuff everybody wants to say. Even Cam is made into a nice guy rather than a jerk, as most movies would make the handsome rival of the dweeb for the lady fair. All in all a fair entry into the crowded romantic comedy genre.
