This Movie Will Make Adults Uncomfortable

I recently saw this movie with some other adults. We wanted to watch it because the description seemed interesting, but by the end of the movie we could agree that the movie was even too vulgar for our tastes. Let's start with language. In this movie, F words are said every minute and there is plenty of descriptive sexual language. Mentions of a guy having an organism while making out with a girl are explained in detail as well as many different ways the characters enjoy sex. Although no sex is shown, a guy and a girl almost have sex and the girl places her hand down the guy's pants. As a viewer, it made me uncomfortable and I am a graduate student. Another scene shows a guy's naked butt as he describes how he trims the hair around his private area. The movie does have some good moments, but it is not for children at all and maybe not even for some adults.

decent sweet charming movie with some flaws.

i am surprised that this movie turned out to be somehow charming and convincing. This is an unlikely love story that is a really sweet romantic comedy. a very sweet romantic comedy. though the movie has flaws, its very slow at few parts, the story and screenplay kind of freezes at some part of the movie which is freaking annoying and then you see that the story catches speed again and that annoyed me. their were some pretty good laughs in the movie, not much though which was fine considering this was supposed to be a romantic comedy. the idea of the PERFECT mis match couple was adorable and sweetly charming, lolz, a guy like him and a girl like her coming and going this way really nice. i would say the charming character in this movie was Jay's character and he himself. loved him seriously he is awsome. others were ok not really a performance based movie. cute funny movie. surprisingly good not excellent with some flaws which will effect the rating i am gonna give but for u guys its on you i will Mildly recommend it to you.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (6 ):

It's a little rushed, and a little rough around the edges, but SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE is genuinely nutty and funny, and with some likeable characters at its center. It's apparently necessary to fill the movie with vulgar humor and sexual situations in order to sell it in the marketplace, but fortunately, the writing is fairly sharp, and with only a couple of those "big reaction" scenes that the filmmakers want everyone to talk about, wedged in.

Though many romantic comedies base their plots around lies and other ridiculous situations, this one gets points for characters that try to speak honestly; it's very simply about two people who are trying to connect but don't know how. English actress Alice Eve lends some soul to her "pretty girl" character and Jay Baruchel brings a unique look and appealing confidence to the "gangly nerd" type that is so popular today.
