Alice Eve is obscenely hot. She’s Out of My Leaguehttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=citydoglax&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B003IMESBY&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr makes this abundantly clear throughout, but I just wanted to reiterate. Alice Eve is obscenely hot.
And therein lies the premise behind the film. An out of shape, nerdy, ugly guy – Jay Baruchel – starts to date a girl that is way out of his league.
Friends of mine that like the same comedies as me downplayed this movie. They weren’t that into it. So I went in thinking it would be something on in the background. But I wound up being glued to this whole thing. I thought it was really funny and I liked all of the characters. Even the friend who is over the top annoying, he never let up – and I respected that. I love the fat guy from the VW commercials (from a few years ago). Everything he said made me laugh. I really like Kristin Ritter. When she tells some guy to shit on his hand on the airplane, it was pretty hilarious.
There were some truly good moments in the film – right after he gives a speech to his family about how he is done with them and his ex-ex-girlfriend – he realizes he can’t get off a plane and has to sit right back down with them. There are some other contrivances – such as prematurely ejaculating in his pants. It was funny in American Pie. Here it seems forced.
All-in-all, not a bad way to spend two hours.
