Kirk Kettner (Jay Baruchel) is cruelly dumped by his girlfriend Marnie (Lindsay Sloane).

To rub salt into the wounds, his parents (Adam LeFevre, Debra Jo Rupp) have adopted Marnie like a surrogate daughter so she is always around the house.

Somehow, Kirk ends up on a date with Molly (Alice Eve), a beautiful passenger who passes through his security gate at Pittsburgh airport.

She seems keen, much to the bemusement of Kirk’s jealous buddies, Stainer (TJ Miller) and Jack (Mike Vogel), who rate their man as a five maybe six on the eligibility scale and Molly a perfect 10.

“If someone really loves you, then you’re a 10,” argues fellow security guard Devon (Nate Torrence).

Molly’s sardonic friend Patty (Krysten Ritter) also feels that Kirk doesn’t meet the grade and tries to poison Molly’s ear.

‘She’s Out Of My League’ is a predictable yet effervescent and hugely enjoyable romantic comedy.

Star Rating: 3/5
