‘She’s Out Of My League’ Not What Was Billed In Trailers

“She’s Out Of My League” comes out tomorrow (3/12/10) in theaters nationwide.

Although many critics have a stigma against trailers, I love them. I think that a good trailer is part of a good movie and that some of the best movies were represented perfectly in their trailers. Movies like “The Dark Knight” and “Watchmen” represented exactly what you would see on screen and the audience loved these movies. What I don’t like is when a movie is presented as being from a certain genre and it never reaches the stereotypes of this genre. Billed as a comedy, “She’s Out Of My League” was far from comedic.

After putting my issues with the trailer behind me, the movie itself was really enjoyable. Leaving the comedy behind the movie develops into a pretty straightforward love story. What made this movie watchable were the characters on screen and the way some relatively unknown actors and actresses represented them.

Known mostly for his small roles in “Knocked Up” and “Nick and Norah’s Infinite PlaylistJay Baruchel, played the likable guy in the movie who meets a girl who is out of his league. Alice Eve, an unknown actress from London, England, plays this part.
The on screen chemistry between the two characters is really special, and is the one and only reason this movie works.

Baruchel’s friends carry the comedy element in this movie. Played by T.J. Miller, Mike Vogel and Nate Torrence, the three provide minor laughs among the sappy love stories twists. Similar to movies like “Superbad” this movie will help to introduce us to a large cast of unknowns who are likely to be Hollywood mainstays over the next few years.

I leave you with this piece of advice, ignore the trailers and take it from me; if you want to go see a sappy, romantic movie with a cast of unknowns that work really well together, “She’s Out Of Your League” is the perfect movie to go see this weekend.
