Summary: When he starts dating drop-dead gorgeous Molly (Alice Eve), insecure airport security agent Kirk (Jay Baruchel) can't believe it. As his friends and family share their doubts about the relationship lasting, Kirk does everything he can to avoid losing Molly forever.
It's not a very good movie, what with following pretty tired plot cliches and being filled with a lot of dumb dialogue. But sometimes stupid movies can be fun, and this is one of those times. All the actors are just right for their parts and in general the great delivery and little touches make up for the mediocrity of the material. I also appreciate that it didn't linger on the "misunderstanding separates the leads," even if it did use the tired trope. I shouldn't have liked it, but I did.
If anything carries this movie, it is the supporting cast. The core relationship between the two leads, however, is a major bust. I didn't believe one second of it, which is too bad because the premise has promise. The filmmakers take the fast-track to mediocrity, delivering only a few fun moments here and there, and not a whole lot of humor. Take it or leave it, but I didn't find anything here to rave about.
To a great extent these boy-meets-girl movies are always much of the same. Predictable, cookie-cutter, clichéd template-fests if you will. However, I like Jay Baruchel, I like Alice Eve, I thought they both did brilliantly in both the comedic and serious scenes of the movie, and I thought the jokes were, on average, good, and at the high points, side-splitting. I don't want to ask for anything more out of the genre, so I'll quit while I'm ahead and declare this one of the better ones I've seen.
This movie has a really bad script. The whole movie is really predictable and the characters are one dimensional. Jay Baruchel's performance is fine but the story has been done numerous times before. Take a pass on this one.
Sunday school morals along with cock and ball jokes? Who did they think was the audience yearning nuns? The story has no conflict for the first hour of the film, then a little laughable (in a bad way) conflict emerges and is cleared up in a totally predictable manor.
Moving past the rather boring gimmick (an attractive girl dating and average guy? That never happens!) the film is actually suprisingly smart and sweet, having more in common with 40 year virgin and less with American Pie (as the ads would have you believe). A bit by the numbers, with a cast that most people haven't heard of will make this any easy one to miss, but the great supporting cast, good script and likeable leads make it stand out in the sea of better marketed comedies.
Lead actress is awful, and a Reese Witherspoon lookalike. Her equally untalented friend is an Anne Hathaway lookalike. The movie formulaic and pretty much a waste of time. A couple of chuckles but nothing more.
