She's Out of My League is one of the funniest movies I've seen since The Hangover.

Kirk (Jay Baruchel) it your typical TSA officer working at the airport and it pretty much just watching life fly by. On a scale from 1 to 10, he's a 5. Then we have Molly (Alice Eve), a solid 10 who happens to cross paths with Kirk and much to his and everyone else's surprise, starts to go out with him. Now the big question is, why would a 10 go out with a 5?

That's pretty much what Kirk and his friends are trying to figure out the entire movie. Meanwhile, Molly actually seems to be enjoying herself when out on dates, or meeting the family. Naturally, there is plenty of awkwardness, usually falling on Kirks shoulders. Still, perhaps nice guys don't always finish last.

Alice Eve is actually pretty hot. With the likes of Megan Fox being your stereotypical sexiness these days, it's nice to see a change. Eve isn't just sexy either, she's normal. The film doesn't portray her as some skimpy dressed floozy who will sleep with anyone. She's a professional with a successful job, enjoys ice hockey, and just seems like one of the regular guys you'd hang out with. Of course, there are some scenes where things get quite sexy and they definitely show that Eve is a solid 10.

Baruchel plays the wimpy dork quite well. Alone he's alright but when he is with his group of friends, that's when the laughs start coming. T.J. Miller, who was hilarious as Hud in Cloverfield, plays his right hand man Stainer and couldn't be any more hilarious. He say's what's on his mind and doesn't censor himself, usually embarrassing Kirk. Molly has the female equivalent of Stainer with Patty (Krysten Ritter). She isn't afraid to stand up to anyone and has an awesome showdown with a man at the airport in one scene.

She's Out of My League will have you laughing throughout the entire film. It's not entirely all that smart with its jokes but that doesn't matter. At least everyone in the film gets in a good line or two and there are a few scenes in particular that are an absolute riot, such as meeting Kirk's entire family, including the crazy ex girlfriend. She's Out of My League is one of the funniest movies I've seen since The Hangover.
