Twenty-something Kirk Kettner (Jay Baruchel) works as a TSA agent at the Pittsburgh airport. He still hangs out with his high school buddies and co-workers, Jack (Mike Vogel), Stainer (T.J. Miller) and Devon (Nate Torrence) and imagines of getting back together with his ex-girlfriend, Marnie (Lindsay Sloane), who has long since moved on. All in all, Kirk seems content to simply maintain the status quo—until the day Molly (Alice Eve) sashays through his security checkpoint at the airport and accidentally leaves her cell phone behind. Molly is smart, sophisticated, devastatingly beautiful—and completely out of Kirk’s league. When Kirk returns the phone as a courtesy, she offers to repay the favor with a pair of hockey game tickets, and he accepts, never thinking for one second that this dream girl is asking him out on a date.
The pair couldn’t seem less suited to each other, a fact that Kirk’s friends and family waste no time pointing out to him. She is a “hard 10,” the top of the dating food chain, while Kirk is struggling to keep his status at five.
Nonetheless, despite Molly’s dashing ex-boyfriend and Kirk’s suddenly possessive ex-girlfriend Marnie complicating his quest, Kirk attempts to prove that if you try hard enough, love can overcome even a five-point spread.
Can an average Joe and a brainy blonde bombshell find true happiness together? That’s the question at the center of SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, a refreshing, rambunctious romantic comedy from director Jim Field Smith (“Goodbye to the Normals”).
