She's Out Of My League - Movie Review

She's Out of My League (R) 105 minutes C+
Geek gets the Girl

Starring Jay Baruchel, Alice Eve, T.J. Miller, Nate Torrence, Krysten Ritter, Geoff Stults, and Lindsay Sloane

You've seen this film before- geeky guy gets smokin hot girl, loses smokin hot girl, then wins her back after he realizes he can't live without her (duh!). I'm not really giving anything away here because every knows that this is what happens in mainstream romantic comedies, the question is can it entertain us even though we know the outcome? And in the case of She's Out of My League the answer is sorta...

This is a very watered down rom-com that imitates smarter/better films in the genre yet it does have its moments. I laughed a few times and Jay Baruchel is more or less believable as an underachieving, non-chick getting, buffoon with good intentions.

It might be worth renting if you're in the mood for a light-hearted comedy that's stupid, crude and at times funny. Don't expect it to be anywhere as good as Wedding Crashers, Knocked Up, The Hangover, etc... But it's entertaining enough to get you through a bowl of popcorn and a cold beverage.
