SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE
Nobody will ever acknowledge this, but She’s Out of My League is likely to do more good for the world than a movie like Precious or Milk ever could. The latter are films that, while well-intentioned, have almost no chance of broadcasting their message to an audience that doesn’t already agree with what they have to say. She’s Out of My League, however, sells itself on the exact premise it seeks to admonish. The marketing campaign was built entirely around the conceit of applying a number value to people (“How could a 10 go for a 5?”), apparently playing on our current generation’s abhorrently shallow societal outlook for an easy laugh. Instead, it tells the story of how that sort of bullshit causes a self-doubting nice guy to nearly sabotage his relationship. Its examination of the effect that this unfortunate cultural development has been having on people’s sense of self-worth doesn’t overshadow its affection for goofy humor, but it’s far more honest and intelligent than its moronic trailer would have you believe. And funnier, too.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
