She's Out of My League (2010)



Director: Jim Field Smith
Starring: Jay Baruchel, Alice Eve, T.J. Miller, Mike Vogel, Nate Torrence, Lindsay Sloane, Kyle Bornheimer, Jessica St. Clair, Krysten Ritter, Debra Jo Rupp, Adam LeFevre, Kim Shaw, Jasika Nicole, Geiff Stults, Hayes MacArthur

Starting with a genuine nice guy Kirk (Jay Baruchel) who gets put down by his family Dylan (Kyle Bornheimer) Debbie (Jessica St.Clair) and his parents (Debra Jo Rupp, Adam LaFevre) and his ex girlfriend Marnie (Lindsay Sloane) and her boyfriend Ron (Hayes MacArthur). While Kirk just gets on with his life.

Kirk works at the airport with his best friends Stainer (T.J. Miller), Jack (Mike Vogel) and Devon (Nate Torrence) when he meets Molly (Alive Eve) a beautiful woman and with this chance meeting he starts a relationship neither of them are ready for.

Using the idea that everyone has a rating out of ten and we are in a league system we see how Kirk who believe he is a five starts seeing Molly a ten with both friends and family and even Molly's ex boyfriend Cam (Geoff Stults) making Kirk question how and why Molly is seeing him, We see how Kirk grow into the person who doesn't need to see a rating system, But the question remains will he learn in time?

This is a nice little rom-com not full on laugh out funny but a nice tale told of being able to judge people not only on looks but personalities. With a great chemistry in the four friends with all different opinions on how relationships could work out.

Having a good soundtrack for all the montage scenes all tunes are catchy and sum up what is going on during the scenes. Having Stainer being in a cover band for Hall & Oats give it an added comic value

My Rating 7/10
