In the comedy “She’s Out of My League,” Kirk (Jay Baruchel, “Knocked Up,” “Tropic Thunder”), an average Joe, can’t believe his luck. Though he’s stuck in a seemingly dead—end job as an airport security agent, against all odds, Molly (Alice Eve), a successful and outrageously gorgeous babe, falls for him. Kirk is stunned. So are his friends, his family and even his ex—girlfriend. Now he has to figure out how to make the relationship work, even though he’d be the first to admit she’s totally out of his league.

Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The premise might work if the film were content to be a fairly undistinguished example of over-the-top gross-out comedy.Mike Hale, New York Times, 06.24.2010
Nothing would work, though, without the appealing Baruchel.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 06.24.2010
Scenes that should be grotesquely funny (man helps another man with his intimate grooming, or the appearance of a Hall & Oates cover band) deliver only chuckles rather than a big payoff.Kyle Smith, New York Post, 07.07.2010
The movie's terrific -- it's easily my favorite film released so far this year.Joy Tipping, Dallas Morning News, 07.07.2010
