She's out of My League
Film Review

3 out of 5

In this oddball romantic comedy from British director Jim Field Smith, the gross-out level is kept to a minimum and the language is reasonably clean, making it a refreshing change from similar testosterone-fuelled movies. Jay Baruchel stars as airport security worker Kirk Kettner, a lanky geek with a good heart who's taken advantage of by his family and his ex-girlfriend. Guided by a motley gaggle of protective friends, Kirk is urged to pursue gorgeous career woman Molly McCleish (Alice Eve) after an incident at the airport. What ensues is more than your average Judd Apatow comedy, even if the film has many recognisable genre hallmarks. It is unbelievable - Molly is definitely out of Kirk's league - but it has a sense of depth and feeling that tempers the slapstick content. Meanwhile, seamless ensemble playing from a solid supporting cast elevates this to the kind of home-town tale in which Jimmy Stewart wouldn't look amiss.

Plot Summary

Romantic comedy starring Jay Baruchel and Alice Eve. Kirk Kettner is an ordinary, uninspiring guy who works as a security guard at Pittsburgh airport with his best mates. He's also still hung up over ex-girlfriend Marnie, who remains friends with his parents. However, life is about to change for Kirk when he meets the beautiful and seemingly perfect Molly McCleish as she checks in to fly to New York.
