She's Out of My League Reviews
03.11.10 by reelz
Much like Green Zone, the reviews for this weekend's nerd fantasy comedy She's Out of My League are all over the map.
"...that rare modern screen comedy that is better than the trailers make it appear. What threatened to be yet another routine exercise in raunchiness instead turns out to be a sweet, charming, hilariously funny love story that could emerge as a sleeper hit. "
— Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"...sort of a good comedy..."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"I laughed here and there, but I sort of hated everything it had to say about nerds and babes and the sliding scale of self-image."
— Michael Phillips, Chiago Tribune
"...eager to be a latter-day Woody Allen/Revenge of the Nerds fairy tale of hormonal wish fulfillment, in which a "funny" guy with quick-witted neurotic charm triumphs over the fact that he doesn't look like a stud-muffin."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...an uninspired romantic comedy/male self-esteem pep-talk that seems to be yearning for viewer affection despite its all-around mediocrity."
— Matthew Connolly, Slant Magazine
"Crushing its one germ of a good idea under a heap of teen-comedy conventions, She's Out of My League supposes that if a quasi-normal guy actually won the girl of his dreams, his own insecurities would scuttle the deal."
— John Anderson, Variety
