She's Out of My League - ***
I thought about writing a one-line review for this movie. I think it would have looked something like this: "Surprisingly not terrible". And let's face it, folks. That's exactly what this movie is. It has everything going against it, but in the end, it somehow works.
In a world filled with unfunny movies, this one made me laugh. I can't say anything else about it. The story is crap, it isn't particularly well-shot, it is filled with those perfunctory scenes of bros just hanging around and talking about stuff, the women exist for the sole purpose of being lust after by unattractive men, it is based on a premise that is so full of shit that only some of the characters have to abide by it (this being the points system for relationships), at least two-thirds of the punchlines are dick-related, there is more than one scene involving hockey, and there is a Pepsi can in every shot.
It shouldn't work, but it does. Bravo.
