Both leads have charm – Londoner Eve (daughter of Trevor, who has a cameo) easily passes for a glamorous American while Baruchel mixes the beguiling delivery of a young Christian Slater with an awkward gait and a hangdog expression. He’s nowhere near plain enough, but those who’ve seen the similarly themed but visually unappealing ‘I Love You Beth Cooper’ will treat that as a blessing.
It’s funny in parts: Kirk’s brash, socially inept pal Stainer (TJ Miller) amuses and Molly’s bitchy best friend Pattie (Krysten Ritter) is great, while far prettier than anyone gives her credit for. Other supporting characters – including Kirk’s idiotic family – fall flat and fail to ring true. ‘She’s Out of My League’ is uneven and frequently juvenile. But, like its hero, it has hidden depths – it’s just a shame they’re not allowed to shine.

I was dreading being dragged against my will to see this since it looks like a romantic comedy. It is a romantic comedy but with a very unlikely couple and as the reviewer says there are plenty of raunchy laughing moments. Sort of along the lines of 40-Year-Old-Virgin. It 's more of a raunchy comedy, no where near as bad as I expected, and really quite a fairly good espcapist comedy.
This film had me actually crying with laughter at two points. Yes, those were probably the juvenile jokes that the Time-Out reviewer takes aim at, but if the jokes make you laugh to the point of crying, does it matter that they're juvenile? This film is not as funny as The Hangover, but if you're not fixated with pseudo-intellectual snobbery, it's well worth seeing.
